Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt or Dress
Styling mini or maxi dresses is straightforward and it's easy to imagine how it will look. When it comes to midi dresses and midi skirts things can get a little complicated, so let’s make it simple. It’s only harder to picture what a midi length looks like is because there is a spectrum that goes from knee length to mid calf. Two midi size dresses may look very different from each other.
Generally, midi skirts are more comfortable than mini skirts and allow us to sit and stand up without worrying about showing a bit too much. Scroll down for some ideas on how to wear midi skirts and dresses with style:
Midi skirts are very flattering. Our Cream Lace Midi Skirt (£179.00) sits just below the knee, so high heeled shoes and this skirt are best buddies – it will make your legs appear slimmer and looks very elegant in any body shape. This skirt helps framing an hourglass figure, highlighting or creating the illusion of a narrow waist and perfectly rounded shaped glutes.
This Black Midi Skirt With White Lace (£145.00) has the same length as the previous one but a very different shape. Unlike pencil skirts, this one is not tight around the hips or stomach so it will suit apple and pear-shaped bodies very well. Because of the lace element, avoid baggy and bright coloured tops. Instead, go for a white basic top or shirt and tuck it in. Classic high heel shoes are a must.
Our Blush Chiffon Skirt Lace Bodice Midi Dress (£59.00) would suit a princess in a fairy tale and will suit you even better still. Despite the colour and delicate chiffon of the skirt, this is not a juvenile vibe dress, thanks to the combination with a fitted bodice and a modern halter neck. This is a great option for a wedding or special event. The lace embroidery bodice doesn’t require any shiny shoes. Try a pair of matte high heel shoes or sandals. Cream, champagne, white and silver would be the best options.
A very good way of wearing midi skirts is with same colour sets. They are trending now and although they are very fashionable they are usually quite casual too. However, our Champagne Sequin Embroidery Set (£63.00) is sublime! It’s a formal and modern party outfit that will flatter your curves, especially in hourglass-shaped bodies. Strappy high heel shoes or sandals and a clutch bag are great matches for this one. This set is classy enough that not a lot of jewellery, accessories or complicated hairstyles are needed here.
This Blush Floral Print Midi Dress (£56.00) with a sweetheart neckline is a lovely party dress for a birthday party or christening. The floral print which is in this summer gives a feminine touch to this dress with details in the bodice and at the edge, with a skirt ending relatively low for a midi size dress. Of course high heels uplift everything, but if you choose comfort over looks and would rather be free to walk and dance the whole day, this is the right dress for you as flat sandals will look great here.
On a thin line between formal and informal, our Black Chiffon Pleated Midi Skirt (£38.00) is very versatile. You can wear it with a tucked-in blouse and boots. Since the skirt is plain and black, any colours, patterns or prints are welcome and a simple white, peach or cream shirt is too. Alternatively, you can style it with a baggy jumper and trainers and it will still look stylish, although with a totally different statement. It’s just a great skirt!
Midi skirts and dresses come in a variety of styles and shapes and the options on how to wear them are infinite. These are just a few suggestions. Inspire yourself with our latest collection of dresses and explore what’s new in clothing at Goddiva.
