The 11 best midi skirts you’ll want to throw on this summer

Posted by for Fashion

Midi skirts are a true wardrobe hero. From bold botanical prints to silky slip styles, we’ve found the skirts that will immediately upgrade every outfit. 

Sometimes you have to give appreciation to certain fashion pieces. We’re not talking an iconic Chanel 2.55 handbag or an original Hermès Birkin that will stay carefully in its dust bag for the rest of time. We mean items that work hard for you everyday, whatever the occasion. There’s the classic white shirt, failsafe white trainers and who could forget the wear-forever trench. But this time our focus is fully on the midi skirt. 

What makes this style stand out from any other skirt? 

Firstly, they are the most versatile piece we can think of. The magic of the midi skirt is that it always gives you exactly what you need for the day ahead. Striking the perfect balance between laidback cool and polished chic, the right midi will work for every occasion, whether that’s a socially distanced garden gathering or a brunch at your favourite weekend spot. 

They’re also the transitional style that you’ll be able to wear from spring to summer, summer to autumn, autumn to winter, and back round again. If you’re looking to invest in a piece that will get as much wear in winter as it will through summer, then the eternally cool midi skirt is the style for you. 

Whether you opt for an indie-chic leopard print slip skirt or a classic 90s-inspired button-through denim style, there’s a midi that’ll work for every wardrobe – and every occasion. 

Still don’t believe us? We’ve found the best colourful, chic midi skirts to buy now and transform your style this summer.
