Shop the trend: A-line midi skirts

As the new season creeps in, stores are also starting to sneak in new variations of midi skirts. Sporting the midi length can get tricky, but this wear-anywhere piece is definitely perfect for any occasion. Many may assume that it belongs to the evening wear wardrobe, however it is actually the winner of the ‘multifunction fashion’ – to the office, beach, parties or weddings, you name it, you wear it.

Not too high, not too low, the skirt falls right where it should be – traditionally at the mid-calf (the biggest part of the leg?!), but we should thank every comtemporary designer for their innovative takes. The age-old style has been modernised on runways by Michael Kors, Fendi and Marni by working with new lengths from the knee till inches above the ankle. Spin it across the room not just with kitten heels but have a go by pairing the skirt with flats or sneakers. Even if you are as pint-sized as Miroslava Duma, you will be amazed at the sartorial results.

The flirty number can easily be a covetable piece as it can be paired with virtually anything for an eye-catching look. A feminine touch can be added simply with a lace bodice or work the sporty look with chunky sweaters to mesh jerseys. Oh and did we mention the varsity trend that has already made its comeback?

So to guide you in becoming the chic mid-skirt-wearing style maven, we sourced a mix of 10 knee-length skirts to fulfill every purpose – full, flowing, printed, textured, pleated and shiny. Which is your favourite? Do tell.
