This year I finally embraced the midi skirt trend. But I’ll be honest, I haven’t always been a huge fan of skirts. I’m short, I tend to forget to cross my ankles… I chase a toddler everyday. But, this Summer I found myself finding REALLY cute and pretty midi skirts. I loved the look and the different options I found.
So how do you wear these midi skirts? My favorite way is honestly with a simple tee. Paired with either a classic sandal or sneaker, it’s really the ideal cool-girl way to wear them. But you can 100% dress them up. Still with a fun tee but swapped out sneakers for a heel.
You can also swap out the tee for a silky camisole, button-down blouse or even a chambray shirt. Treat them like you would fancier or printed shorts. Let the skirt do most of the talking especially if it’s a fun print.
You can easily recreate this look at home with any midi skirt you like. There’s just three essentials I recommend having on hand to create these looks.
I personally love to pair these midi skirts with my go-to white tees or a graphic tee. And for a few reasons. One is that these skirts are sometimes statement pieces so keeping the rest of your look simple is key. But also, some of these skirts are more flowy or voluminous with pleats and movement. When you have something flowier on the bottom, you want the top part to balance it out with something more fitted. A simple tee does just that. If you want to go a little dressier, swap it out for a silky camisole or button down. And you can totally do a chambray shirt as well.
TIP: If you’re looking for something that’s fitted, try a bodysuit. They’re great for creating a sleek silhouette that pairs perfectly with a high waisted skirt.
The ultimate cool girl combo if you ask me. A classic white sneaker paired with something feminine like a midi skirt is an easy juxtaposition that always works. Just be sure you’re wearing a fashion-forward sneaker and one that’s CLEAN and white. I always opt for either my Soludos or Converse. But Adidas or Keds will work too! Just keep the running shoe at bay so it doesn’t look like you’re heading home from the gym.<
You can coordinate your mules to the skirt to bring out one of the colors in the print. Or to complement the color of the skirt itself. I also love wearing a classic gladiator sandal or my favorite Greece style sandals. I like mules for Fall over a pair of sandals.
