We’re 100% digging the latest modesty trend. Not too short, not too long, this season’s midi skirts are exuding some down-to-earth country charm. The trick is in the details. You will love them best adorned with belts, pockets, and buttons. Get in mom’s closet and start raiding her wardrobe with these snappy looks that transition perfectly into Fall.
Belted Midi Skirts
Time to accessorize! The trick to pulling off a midi skirt is to keep the focus on the waist. A simple tee and an easy belt bring home that girl-next-door look you’re going after. This Annaliese wrap skirt has a great floral print and a few ruffles to boot. A wrap waist or a belt helps enhance your girlish figure. Everything else you can keep pretty simple. A cotton tee or an easy tank top look terrific with our favorite coin necklaces, too. C’est chic!
Add a Splash of Denim
You remember our long-lasting love for stripes. Pair striped midi skirts with denim jackets when you’re heading out into a cooler evening. H&M carries a terrific striped skirt in black that looks great with vintage denim or an embellished jacket. It has pleats in the front and elastication at the back of the waist to tuck your “business casual” shirts into. Did someone say casual Friday? Just switch out your tennies with leg-lengthening nude heels. Done and done!
Silk Camis For Evening
These babies also go from zero-to-sexy in 60 seconds flat. Pair slimmer midi skirts with silk camisoles that totally flatter your neckline. A lace cami and a skirt with polka dots or stripes (or both!) are easy date night solutions. (Or, try this Zoe skirt in a floral that mimics polka dots. It comes in 5 different prints and we won’t tell if you stock up for Fall.) We recommend adding a low-profile pair of our favorite Summer sandals and slides to ensure you stay comfortable and cool. Date nights require 100% confidence, so always take the less-is-more approach to your outfit.
If you fell in love with crop tops, here’s another way to wear them! Button-front midi skirts that are a little fuller are hot-mom casual and balance the modesty factor. A Madewell chambray skirt with stripes and buttons is swingy and full of love. It’s perfect for window shopping and works at the office as well. Add a trendy straw bag and some low, neutral slides to keep the emphasis on that hemline. Total hottie!
I Bling in My White Tee
Another sought-after top for this look is a simple, white tee shirt. Slimmer midi skirts look fantastic with white tees that are a little blinged out. Layer a few of your favorite gold chains and pendants. If you’re not into office politics, a slit up-to-there is a way to turn modest on it’s toes. Try an asymmetrical button skirt in 100% Viscose fabric, since it’s breathable and easy to care for. Accessorize with a canvas tote and penny loafers for an airy, summer style.
Pick The Right Shoe
With the one exception of dressing up a look for the office, we prefer to pair these guys with flats. Midi skirts look best with loafers, Summer oxfords, tennis shoes, and mules. Fuller skirts look great with a dressy Oxford, like these snake and croc embossed Italian leather babies. Added to the cart; ding! Looking for their BFF? This striped midi skirt from & other stories has a button-front and is made with love in LA. Just add a belt and you’re right on trend.
Country Mouse/ City Mouse
Keep the look country, with cottons and florals and easy fits. Feel free to add in a little print mixing as you desire. Upgrade your midi skirts with a little rock n’ roll flair, by adding graphic tees, skate shoes, and golddd. Skate style works in just as well as Cuban style, no big deal. We love the juxtaposition of ying and yang in every outfit. Keep everything carefree and fun with these guys and subtract any of the fuss. These will quickly be your new closet staples, so stock up on prints when you find them in the perfect shape and size!
