Mini Skirts? Overdone. Maxi? Same thing! So how about doing the Midi? You may think it’s not your style or that it doesn’t suit you. So perhaps we can help in that department with these tips on how to wear mid length skirts this season!
First off, I used to hate midi skirts. I find my legs/thighs big for my body. Midi skirts tend to emphasize that. But now, I noticed I’ve overcome the fear of wearing them with the help of heels and the right length.
How to wear a midi skirt? Here are some tips shown with the help of our fellow fashionistas from the Chictopia Community!
The Right Length
Midi skirts aren’t exactly ideal for showing off the legs. In fact, you may find that they cut your legs at the wrong length, making it look wider or bigger than it is. Choosing the right length is key. Find a hem that doesn’t emphasize or cut your legs at their widest parts! When you find the perfect length that suits you, you’ll find that their not hard to pull off after all! And in case you couldn’t find any, perhaps choosing a shorter maxi and adjusting it on your own will do the trick. Look at these fellow fashionistas and see where the length of their midi’s ends.

High Waist Midi for Lengthy legs
Mini skirts show off legs that make you look taller than usual. Maxi skirts are long and lengthy, giving an illusion of longer legs too. But how about the Midi? They break up the legs and won’t give you that long lean legs that you want, but by wearing them high above the waist, will actually help you achieve that lengthy legs! Here are some of our fave Chictopians to help you picture the look!
