So we’ve been there with maxis, and worn minis until we just can’t wear them any more. We’d never turn our back on these skirt staples, but there’s a new style in town – the midi.

The key to this skirt lies in the name, finishing mid-calf for an insouciant elegance. It might sounds a bit unflattering, we know, but the midi is surprisingly versatile. Half way between an all-covering maxi and a teeny-tiny mini show-all, this great shape is smart and stylish.

ASOS’s belted ponti fit and flare skirt will become your midi go-to. The tailored style and A-line shape mean it’s smart enough for the office style queen, but will work just as well on the weekend with chunky heels and ankle sock.

Petite readers, don’t need to be shy – just make sure you team it with the highest heels you can brave so you don’t feel swamped.

If you’re feeling like something new this Friday, you’ll love the midi – and this one’s just £35.
