10 Plus Size Midi Skirts That Aren't Frumpy in the Least

When it comes to skirts, the midi is a wardrobe staple that's especially appropriate for summer. Coined “midi” because of its mid-calf length hem, this skirt has a retro feel and has been popping up in street style photos and on runways everywhere (I’m talking Miu Miu Spring 2013). Midi skirts can be dressed up or down, making them appropriate for just about any summer occasion. Luckily the plus size market has caught on to the trend, and is offering tons of bold and basic selections to choose from.

What I love most about the midi is its versatility; it’s a piece that can translate seamlessly through to fall with the addition of some essential layers. Up until recently, I found myself avoiding the midi trend, worried that the length might be frumpy and work against my body type. But I can honestly say that after taking the plunge and wearing my first midi, I was in love! The midi's more modest than my usual skirts, and it has the ultimate feminine throwback feel. Tip: Wear your midi with heels to help elongate your look.
