Midi Skirt

The shirt options to wear with midi skirts are practically endless. For a high-waisted silhouette, opt for a crop top that shows of the waistline, go with a streamline bodysuit that you won't bulk up when you tuck or opt for the unexpected in the form of an oversize sweatshirt or button-down.

A-Line Skirt

Pencil Skirt

Who doesn't love a good pencil skirt? But finding a top to pair with it might not be everyone's favorite task. Luckily, there are many top styles that work with them, thanks to the piece's streamlined design that teams well with button-downs, sweaters, crop tops, and relaxed-fitting tees.
