Midi Skirt Styling

Whilst the Northern hemisphere is preparing for summer, down in Australia we are preparing for winter. Well let’s be honest here, it’s hardly the bitter minus temperatures I grew up with in the UK! In Sydney, May has been the warmest on record, which means I haven’t yet fully delved into the heavy layering I’m wishing for. 

Midi skirts are a great piece for these in between months, and can be classed as an investment piece. They can be worn with boots in the winter or loafers come summer. These are the kind of pieces which help you build a capsule wardrobe; the items which will be on rotation through all seasons. So how can you style a midi for winter? 

Here are my pointers:

  • Pick a style to match your shape and height. Flattering options include high waisted, fishtail and the button down.
  • If you’re feeling adventurous, try styling a denim midi over a pair of flared jeans. It’s not for everyone, but skirts over trousers are going to be big next season. I experimented with this trend at Fashion Week last week, and you can take a look here. If you are opting for a more tailored style skirt, make sure the trousers you pair underneath are of a similar fabric. It’s also nice to keep these the same colour, which will add a luxury feel to your look.
  • There are no rules with footwear. If your midi is button down, try adding a pair of knee highs and unbuttoning a few buttons. For milder days, loafers are a winner.

Today’s midi is from Revolve Clothing, and lucky for you there’s 20% off site wide using code “TAKE20” at checkout. Offer ends tomorrow night so get in quick!

  1. When I saw everyone at the beach on Instagram in Sydney, I was like, what the?! And then I heard you've been having some very warm weather, a stark contrast to the stormy, cold, wintry weather we've been having (and to the heat and humidity of Bali!).

    Weirdly enough, I haven't fished out my midi skirts yet despite wearing them continuously last year, though you definitely have inspired me. A midi skirt over a pair of trousers or over-the-knee boots is definitely a style winner!

  2. Love this look Helen! Definitely a midi is a winner over boots or trousers.
