How to Wear the Midi Skirt

The Midi trend was massive last year & it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere – Jessica Alba saw to that at Comic Con in July.  The full Midi skirt is  nod to the 50’s, an era that was all class so no wonder Jessica Alba chose to wear Zimmerman’s version (below). And you know if Jess is wearing it, you should too!

If you don’t already own 1 (or three like me) you should definitely think about adding 1 to your wardrobe… stat! The midi skirt is such a versatile piece: summer, winter, casual or fancy this skirt can do it all. Below are my favourite ways to style the Midi Skirt.


Play up the feminine feel of a pleated midi skirt by teaming it up with a crop top. A cropped top draws the eyes to a tiny waist and shows just a sliver of skin – the classiest way to flash that tan! Lace up heels add just enough edge to keep the cool kids happy.


Nothing screams summer like crisp white. Pick a white midi skirt in scuba material – it will hold it’s shape & there is no risk of transparency or VPL (obviously important when trying to look sophisticated and classy!) Tuck in a collared shirt to really channel the 1950’s vibe – a denim shirt keeps the look fresh and summery. Pointed court heels keep the look ladylike from head to toe.


I’m not a matchy-matchy kinda gal so I love playing with contrasts. The full circle midi skirt is the most fancy & “grown up” version of the midi skirt family so give a nod to your inner child and contrast the grown up skirt with a cartoon printed top or slogan tee. Extra points for Disney – Bambi is my pick, obviously! Better yet, add some wedged kicks to amp up the fun factor.

Loving the midi trend and want Miss Alba’s look? Why not add these pieces to your cart now? (You know you don’t want to resist! Go on, I won’t tell!)
