Ask Shopbop: How to Buy a Midi Skirt


Look 1: Alice + Olivia skirt, R13 tee, McQ – Alexander McQueen scarf, Rag & Bone booties and hat, Paige Denim jacket. Top skirt: Tibi. Bottom skirt: A.L.C. Styled by Dokia.

When looking to buy a midi skirt, think about what shapes you feel comfortable in—full skirts, A-lines, or pencils. Then, consider your height and waist-to-hip ratio. Full skirts accentuate a small waist or create the illusion of one if you have a less curvy figure. I like to pair A-line shapes and pencil skirts with heels. This helps with proportions, elongating the legs and flattering the hips. In most cases, keep your top fitted. Midi skirts can easily overwhelm a gal's figure, and a full silhouette on the top half will throw off the flattering balance necessary to pull off this look.
