10 Stylish Midi Skirts With The Editor Stamp of Approval

  • 1 of 11

    Miniskirts may be the obvious choice when mercury rises, but personally I've always been a proponent of the longer, shin-grazing midi skirt. Not only do they remind me of Audrey Hepburn lounging coquettishly on the Spanish steps in Roman Holiday, but they're also appropriate for the office and incredibly forgiving if you've failed to start working on your summer tan. I’m excited to see that there are so many different styles this season, and to help you shop the look, I've honed in on my top 10. Keep reading to shop my favorites.

    MHL by Margaret Howell

    Big Pocket Skirt ($264)

    The silhouette goes casual with the addition of large pockets and a tie belt. It's begging for a trip to the beach with your favorite bikini and a loose spaghetti strap tank.

    Mango

    Full Midi Skirt ($80)

    A lightweight, breezy fabric makes this Mango skirt the ideal pick for summer’s sweltering temps.

    Tibi

    Organza Check Jacquard Skirt ($595)

    I love that the bottom of this silk georgette skirt is sheer, giving it a strong geometric element.

    Marni

    Cotton and Silk Blend Organdy Circle Skirt ($1280)

    The perfect shade of mint green was the initial lure, but it was the gathered fabric in the back of this investment piece that had me hooked. Keep it soft and pretty by adding other shades of pastels.

    Derek Lam

    A-Line Skirt ($1750) in Red/Purple/Cocoa

    When this skirt hit the Derek Lam runway, it was love at first sight. Sure, it's an investment piece, but bright guipure lace is sure to look beautiful year after year.

    ASOS

    Full Midi Circle Skirt with Pockets ($75)

    This is just the piece I need to wake up my mostly neutral wardrobe.

    Nasty Gal

    Sleek Side Skirt ($58)

    The midi skirt gets a cool-girl update in sleek patent leather--a fabric that, come fall, I promise will make a lot of sense. Get a jump-start on the trend now.

    Topshop

    Organza Insert Calf Skirt ($96)

    Soft kick pleats give this skirt great movement. In keeping with the season’s all-white trend, I'd add a boxy poplin top and ankle-strap heels.

    Vanessa Bruno

    Beige Ten Pleat Skirt ($856)

    I'd give this tan, ‘70s-inspired midi the Lauren Hutton treatment by styling it with a tucked-in crewneck tee.

    J.W. Anderson

    Beige Ten Pleat Skirt ($856)

    A full A-line silhouette and pleating lend this skirt its structured, ladylike feel. I have a hunch our very own Hillary Kerr would approve too!
