When it comes to wardrobe staples, the midi skirt is still something of a newcomer.
What started as a mini trend a few years back has now graduated to an essential, steadily becoming a sartorial saviour and something we can reach for 365 days a year. And It’s no wonder, they’re comfortable, versatile and far less restrictive than a pencil skirt. Not only that, the ultra-feminine, waist-defining silhouette is also incredibly flattering. What’s more, you can get your hands on one without spending a fortune.
Where, then, should we be heading to find new-season styles? One quick look through some of our favourite high street retailer’s new-in sections – think Arket, & Other Stories and Topshop – and we’ve seen virtually every spring/summer 2019 trend in midi skirt form. Should you be looking for something luxe, you won’t be short of choice either, as Rixo, Nanushka and Ganni have covetable styles in abundance. From directional zebra prints to checks, minimalist pleats to belted A-Line shapes – there’s just so much choice, we’d happily wear them all.
