Here’s a riddle: What can be worn multiple ways, is appropriate for every season and is ultra feminine and timeless? You said it fashionista, the midi skirt. It’s a staple item that we simply cannot live without, especially during the warmer months of summer, it’s a fashion piece that has stuck with us over the centuries and has continuously adapted to the different trends over the years. It’s the perfect piece that can cater to any style and take you from day to night. We have compiled four key ways that you can style a midi skirt this summer; see which one best suits you and your personal style!

1. sporty chic
The Sporty Chic Midi
Go pleated, jersey or linen, the style of the skirt is up to you, but our tip is to pair the skirt with a super sleek or sporty runner. Our favorite sneaker picks would be Stan Smiths, Nike, Converse, Vans or New Balance. This look is great for the girl on the go; she’s got a busy schedule that involves some fun and leisurely summer activities. She’s ready to get out there and play in the sun, but she’ll be on the move and will need just a simple casual tee shirt and trendy sneaker to take her through her day in her fabulous midi skirt.  

2. beachy
The Beachy Bohemian Midi
What better way to embrace the summer season than with the ease of a lightweight and flowy midi skirt? Throw on a straw hat, a good pair of nude sandals or sandal wedges, a light colored tank top or a casual tee and some dainty pieces of jewelry and you can rock your midi skirt to the beach or an outdoor patio for afternoon drinks. This look is meant to be light, effortless and perfect for those super hot summer days.

3. Date night
The Date Night Midi
Use date night as your opportunity to get a little creative pattern wise with your midi skirt. Go for basic stripes or a bold floral print, as they are the perfect pattern choices for an evening on the town. Pair a patterned skirt with a basic colored crop top in order to keep the look fun and flirty. As for your fabulous feet, opt for a strappy sandal and finish the look with just one statement piece of jewelry; either earrings, a bangle or a necklace and accessorize with a little clutch.  

4. business chic

She Means Business Midi

Whether you’re spending your summer days hard at work in the office or out and about for meetings or social events, you can style your midi skirt to look business chic. Style with a classic closed toe pump or a blouse; they are the key pieces you will need to pull this look off just right. You can choose to belt this look or compliment it with a statement necklace, either way, you want to maintain a fresh and polished appearance. A pleated midi skirt or a solid colored midi skirt is the best choice for the business chic look.
