Casual Midi Skirt for Fall

Midi Skirt Worn Casually

I am super surprised by how often I’ve ended up wearing this swapped dress. Since realizing it could be worn as a midi skirt with just a little clasp of a safety pin, I’m newly inspired. It is, after all, one of two mid-length skirts I own, and the more casual of the two, so naturally I am bound to wear the heck out of it.

Can anyone wear a midi-length skirt? I think more of you can than you think. I’m only 5’6″ (or a little less) and that’s not SUPER tall, right?

  • Make sure the waist of the skirt goes as high as possible on your waist, so as to give the illusion of longer legs.
  • Select a lightweight skirt that drapes naturally. Too much pouf or heaviness will be an added challenge.
  • Show off your ankles! Dont wear tall boots or anything that would cut what’s left of your leg off visually. Pumps are a sure bet.
  • Add extra height with a heel or platform. Like I said, pumps.
  • Throw a belt on there for added definition. If you can’t tell where the skirt ends and your top begins, show off that waist with a wide belt. It will draw the eye up.

If you’re still not so sure, just try it! Or go shopping with me and I will find the skirt to flatter you the most: shape, personality, and style-wise. I am not saying this length of a skirt is for everyone, I’m just saying it’s for more than just uber tall uber skinny people. Dig?

    Not that tall? I’m BARELY 5’6″ in my highest heels!
    But I think you look cute in any length skirt.

    • I know I know, 5’6” is regular tall, I just meant that I’m not “model” tall like some people think you have to be to pull off this length skirt! I have actually been called an amazon before, too, but I thought that was weird.
