What is a midi skirt?

A midi skirt is a skirt with a length that’s between your knee and your ankle. To me, anything that sits below the knee and above the ankle is considered a midi skirt. They are a wonderful and elegant addition to your minimalist wardrobe. You can style them for any occasion and they can be worn all year round.

Different types of midi skirts

There are many different types of midi skirts. Some of the different midi skirt styles are:

  • Pleated
  • Pencil
  • A-line
  • High-low
  • Wrap waist
  • Eyelet
  • Plain
  • Button down
  • Denim

And of course, they also come in different prints and colors. The ones you choose to have will depend on your style and the type of pieces you have in your closet. Also keep in mind that you can style your midi dresses as midi skirts too. I’ll teach you how and give you some examples below.

How many midi skirts do you need in your closet?

Well… funny that you asked LOL. So, as you are about to see, I’ve had a few midi skirts over the past 6 years, HOWEVER, I have converted into minimalism and right now I currently have 2.

One is a plain black one that goes with everything and the other one is a floral one that adds some color and pattern to my outfits.

I think having 2 or 3 midi skirts is enough for most people. You can mix and match them with different tops, shoes, and accessories to create multiple looks.

How to style midi skirts for every season

There are many ways to create midi skirt outfits. For today, think about the midi skirt as your ‘hero piece’. Take the ones you have out of your closet (or the midi dress you can use instead) and take this opportunity to see how many outfits you can create with them.

Here are some ideas for each season:


In the spring, when you start wearing your skirts with t-shirts, try knotting your t-shirt right at the waistband of your skirt for a fun little detail. You can also pair your skirt with a denim jacket or a cardigan for some extra warmth. For shoes, go for sneakers, flats, or sandals.


In the summer, a straw hat is always a good idea. Sometimes summer outfits can be a little bit boring. It’s too hot for layers! So instead, try some fun accessories like a straw hat, sunglasses, or a colorful bag. You can also wear your skirt with a crop top or a tank top for a breezy look. For shoes, opt for sandals, espadrilles, or wedges.


In the fall, you can transition your skirt into the cooler weather by adding some cozy layers like a sweater, a leather jacket, or a scarf. You can also wear your skirt with boots or booties for some extra warmth and style. For tops, go for long sleeves, turtlenecks, or button-down shirts.


In the winter, you can still rock your skirt with some tights or leggings underneath. You can also layer a coat or a blazer over your outfit for some extra protection from the cold. For tops, go for sweaters, sweatshirts, or hoodies. For shoes, go for boots, booties, or sneakers.

Style hack: convert your midi dresses into skirts (with no scissors!)

If you don’t have a midi skirt, no need to buy one. Just use a midi dress instead!

Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Put on your midi dress as usual.
  2. Take a belt and wrap it around your waist.
  3. Tuck the top part of your dress under the belt until it looks like a skirt.
  4. Adjust the length and the fit of your skirt as needed.
  5. Voila! You have a new midi skirt!

You can also do this with maxi dresses if they are not too long.

How to recreate these looks with things you own

You don’t need to buy new things to create these looks. You can use what you already have in your closet and get creative with it.

Here are some tips on how to recreate these looks with things you own:

  • Use color combinations that work well together. For example, black and white, navy and pink, yellow and green, etc.
  • Use prints and patterns that complement each other. For example, stripes and florals, polka dots and plaid, leopard and solid colors, etc.
  • Use accessories that add some interest and personality to your outfit. For example, hats, scarves, belts, jewelry, bags, etc.
  • Use shoes that match the vibe of your outfit. For example, sneakers for casual, heels for formal, boots for edgy, etc.
