After years of not liking the style on myself, something clicked, almost overnight and I found myself drawn to midi-skirts. First it was my Marge-inspired stripey, embroidered summer number. And now it’s this much more neutral and year round button-up black skirt.
What I’m loving about midi-skirts is the amount of freedom that they give me. They let my legs free of their cages (jeans), are a cooler option for the summer, but are long enough that when I crawl around on my hands and knees chasing after a toddler, I’m still safely covered.
I think my previous fear of mid-skirts was looking dowdy, but I didn’t really need to worry about that at all! So much of the advice I read in magazines noted to combat the dowdy possibility that you had to wear heels – and we all know that was never going to happen here! I’m here to call bull on that. Wear a sneaker, were a sandal. If you get your fit and your pairings right, you don’t need a heel to avoid the “dowdy” trap.
Here are some other midi skirts that I am loving:
