I Really Love My…. Midi Skirts

You know, sometimes when we love something, like really love something, we tend to fall into a place, whether we notice or not, to repeat or gravitate towards it over and over again. For me, its the MIDI SKIRT.

For me, next to leather details, I am IN LOVE with midi length skirts and dresses. This length is everything for me. And with this particular trend showing out for fall, I am here for all of this… ALL OF THIS. I didn’t even realize how much I love this particular trend until I started looking at my past outfit posts and a few of my favorite Gotta Have Its. LOL

What’s a Midi Skirt?

A skirt that hits in the middle of the calf. Longer than a pencil, not exactly a maxi length.

On my Fall 2013 Wishlist?

As NY Mag called out this trend for fall, I am here for it.

Midi skirts in various styles. Pencil, and a-line. Dresses and skirts. Leather midi pencil skirts, wool, and jersey. I want a variety of them.


Well, I like the fine line that Midi length pieces play, both edgy, sexy, feminine, demure, playful, sassy… basically all of these. This length can translate across a variety of occasions, moods, and personal styles! The flexibility of this skirt is one I both love and live for.

In addition, this skirt length helps me feel sharp without worrying about showing too much. A pencil feels too formal for me, but the longer length is definitely sassier, in my book.

I just made these two skirts mine:

From Simply Be – $58

    I too love a midi! Not too short so there’s no anxiety about showing the knees, but not so long that it overwhelms an outfit.

    • Elle Leah

    Midi skirts are cute. However, I’m thinking about how I could wear them to work, because I’m not too much of a “shirts tucked in” kinda girl. Any other looks with midis? Thanks!

    • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

      You should totally try a shirt tucked in! You may be surprised! Also try the dresses in this length!

    • Lov Lee Carpenter

      Yes! I used to feel the same, but a tucked in top with a great belt is a fashion life changer, let me tell you.

  • Lov Lee Carpenter

    Midi has always been my favorite length. It looks classy and sexy at the same time, and I’ve always felt midi length flatters my leg the most. I so glad this is the trend!

    • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

      Me too!!!

    Oh I love midi skirts/dresses! I think they work for most body shapes.

    • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

      I have to agree! :)

  • Dawn McClain

    I too love my midi skirts and dresses. I’m a mature woman but i still past 50 but not ready to dresses in polyester, and this length keeps me on fashion point.

    • http://thecurvyfashionista.mariedenee.com Marie Denee

      Work it out @dawnmcclain:disqus I am not mad at all! :)

  • Evelyn Ramos

    I like them; although I tend to think that at 5’4″, I’m too short for them. BTW, loving the SWAK skirt above BUT do you know anything about those shoes?????
