Make mine a midi
Midi skirts are a total modern classic: they’ve been given a new lease of life in recent years by the trend for sharp pleated styles in a range of colours, but we just love that super-chic, mid-calf length of skirt whatever the shape or colour. Heavy satin in a puff-shape, suedette with a row of buttons down the front, black pleather, or a sweet A-line in a strong cotton that will hold its shape: we can offer you a lot of midis to choose from. They’re super wearable, look great with or without tights, and depending on the material, can be a wardrobe asset all year round.
When to wear a midi skirt
At navabi, we firmly believe a midi skirt is a versatile and lasting addition to your sartorial life. Although less structured styles are not as dress code-perfect as a formal knee-length skirt, they slip so easily into a smart-casual wardrobe. Midi skirts add a sleek flair to a dressed-down outfit and keep you looking cool in the office, out with friends or on a city break. They’re a great style for accentuating or faking an hourglass shape as they tend to sit on the waist, so make it a midi if you need to wow in a more casual setting- it will definitely have more impact than your usual pair of jeans.
… and how to wear one
Midi skirts are super versatile in that they go with a vast array of tops. A fine knit, a casual t-shirt, a button-down shirt for work will all look great with a midi. In terms of outerwear, keep jackets and cardigans short so that they hit the waistline of your skirt and create a cute silhouette. Bombers and biker jackets look particularly good with a midi, balancing the long line of the skirt with a cool, cropped jacket on top. If you want to break things up and make your waist even more defined, cover the waistband of the skirt with a skinny belt: they’re much cooler than a chunky style and keep the outfit flowing and playful. Even though they’re lovely for a swishy, summery look, midis look especially stylish with a long sleeve, which makes them a perfect skirt to keep in your wardrobe as summer turns into autumn.
Whether you pair your midi skirt with a dainty flat shoe, a low heel or a cool trainer, you’ll be winning in the style stakes. Lots of shoes work with midis, as long as there’s a little hint of leg between your shoe and the hem of your skirt. It just helps to keep things fresh and feminine. In the summer, a midi skirt made from a light, flowing fabric looks lovely with a delicate sandal. For an evening look, pair a pleated satin midi in a jewel tone with a pointy-toed stiletto heel to feel like the belle of the ball.
