Midi skirts are very unique in that they’re quite possibly the only skirt that make people shudder in horror more than the mini. The fear of an unflattering skirt length making us look like a librarian is enough to make anyone avoid it, sure, but when worn well spring’s in between-length skirts can look utterly divine.
Their loose fit and longer length means you don’t have to worry about wobbly bits, control underwear or the discomfort that comes with bodycon mini’s, and their versatility is ever-surprising.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, this gorgeous Mango floral print midi will change your mind.
The light, fluid fabric is ideal for warmer weather and the floral print is perfect for spring – plus it’s soft pleats are a great nod to the ballet trend.
Pull it up to your waist for an ultra-slimming new sillohuette, and if you want to know what to wear it with, you’re in luck – we’ve picked our favourite pieces to pair with your midi skirt this season. See below for our top picks…
