These Are the Best Shoes to Wear With a Midi Skirt

The warmer weather is just around the corner, which means we'll soon be living in light, flimsy frocks, easygoing denim, and breezy skirts. Midi skirts, in particular, are a perennial favorite and a versatile wardrobe staple. They also happen to be the perfect piece for transitional weather—easy to wear with knee-high boots and sandals alike. 

With your favorite midi skirts now hanging in your closet, the question becomes what shoes are the best to wear with a midi-length skirt? For this, we turn to our favorite fashion muses to see what footwear looks flattering. (And to my shorter friends, yes, you can pull off a midi length—just opt for an A-line or wrap skirt that falls just below the knee.)

From sneakers to espadrille wedges, scroll below for the best shoes to wear with a midi skirt.

1. Naked Strappy Sandals

Barely there strappy sandals are the perfect accompaniment to every kind of midi skirt. Opt for a neutral or metallic hue if your skirt has bold prints or embellishments.

A favorite pairing among fashion girls, white sneakers and a midi skirt exudes a relaxed, cool vibe. Opt for a midi skirt with small floral or polka-dot prints or add a casual touch to a silky slip midi skirt.

3. Block-Heel Sandals

Chunky block-heel sandals are one of our preferred pairs of shoes to wear with a midi. Chic, contemporary, practical, and cool.

4. Pointed-Toe Kitten Heels

A pointed-toe kitten heel makes a midi skirt look sophisticated and polished—ideal for desk-to-drink situations. Moreover, the lower topline of the shoe flatters and lengthens your legs.

5. Flat Sandals

Believe it! While we may think heels are the most flattering with midi skirts, flat sandals can also look incredibly cool. Whether they're embellished sandals or simple slides, we're loving this relaxed and super-comfortable look.

6. Espadrille Wedges

Wedge espadrilles are unquestionably a winning pair of shoes to wear with a midi. Not only do they exude French-girl charm, but they're also incredibly flattering and comfortable. Sign us up.

7. Knee-High Boots

While the cool weather sticks around a bit longer, knee-high boots are the perfect way to stay warm. Let the hem of the skirt skim over the boots for a sophisticated look.
