Meet The Midi Skirt, Your Fall Fashion Secret Weapon
Sure, we love our minis—and maxi skirts obviously have their time and place, too. But lately, we've been particularly drawn to the in-between midi length when shopping for skirts. Ending anywhere from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankle, the midi skirt—or tea skirt, as it's sometimes called—is this season's easiest-to-style piece.
Why? For starters, it's perfect for the chilly temperatures that arrive in late fall and continue on 'til early spring. Wear your midi with a pair of knee-high boots, and no skin goes uncovered (and thus frostbitten). Teamed with pumps, a midi skirt's the epitome of Mad Men polish. And for those of you who live in eternal fear of a Marilyn Monroe-style moment of overexposure, fear not: in a calf-length skirt, you're virtually guaranteed to keep everything under wraps, all while making your waist look teeny-tiny and your legs appear miles long. And lest you worry your look creep into overly ladylike territory, rest assured that below-the-knee skirts look equally fantastic combined with a casual top—like a graphic sweatshirt or worn-in denim jacket.
