Welcome to #WhoWhatWearing, a series where we highlight you, our stylish community of readers. Each of the following looks came straight from the photos you tagged us in on Instagram. Want to be featured next time? You guessed it: Use #WhoWhatWearing on the outfit posts you want us to see.

There was a time not too long ago when the fashion world was all about the miniskirt, à la Paris Hilton or Linsday Lohan circa 2005. Then thanks to the bohemian trend (and in large part, to the Olsen twins), it was all about the maxi skirt. Fast-forward to present day, and there's a new skirt style in town that fashion girls can't get enough of—the midi. Hitting somewhere below the knee but above the ankle, the midi has proven to be the most viral clothing piece of the year.

In my opinion, the midi skirt is one of the most flattering styles that can be worn in countless different ways. One swipe through Instagram tells me I'm not the only one who thinks so—our WWW readers can't quit this style either. After browsing through their snaps, I'm going to go ahead and call this the skirt of summer 2018. Our readers are pairing theirs with everything from button-downs and slides to sweaters and sneakers. If you're looking for fresh ways to style yours, take a scroll below and prepare to be inspired.

This is an outfit combo I'll be wearing well into fall. 

Note to self: A midi with a slit makes for a very chic Instagram opp. 

Midi Skirt Outfit Ideas

I'll have what she's wearing, thanks. 

Does anything feel more like summer than a palette of breezy neutrals?

When in doubt, go for bold color. 

Consider your Sunday brunch look found. 

Tieing up your button-down blouse is an effortless way to show off your waist. 

If you're looking for a way to wear a crop top without showing your belly-button, you've found it.

Cinching your skirt with a belt is another chic way to accentuate your waist.

When you want to show a little leg. 

A bodysuit and midi skirt are a match made in sartorial heaven. 

Crop top + midi skirt + slides = dream weekend outfit. 

Make your midi pop by sticking to a black-and-white color palette. 

Show a little more leg by leaving a few buttons strategically undone.

Name a chicer summer color scheme—I'll wait. 

The most viral skirt of summer styled perfectly with neutral accessories.
