Here are 9 of the best midi skirts that will carry you through the summer

by Edaein OConnell
02nd May 2020

In search of the perfect item of clothing for summer? Well, we think the midi skirt may just be it – here are 9 we love on the online high street right now

Summer dreaming looks a lot different this year.

Before the global pandemic, we imagined golden sand and sapphire seas. We fantasised about cliff views and ice-cold glasses of rosé on the promenade.

However, this summer our daydreams must stay inland. For the warmer months, we will more than likely have to stay home.

But this doesn’t mean you can’t dress as if you are swanning around the Riveria.

Summer saviour

The humble midi skirt is the ultimate all-rounder and the definition of a summer saviour. It’s a ‘throw it on and you’re ready’ type of garment. Worn with sandals, runners or heels, and any top you have at your disposal, it is an ideal choice for drinks in your garden, family Zoom calls, and even just a trip to the supermarket.

This season’s incarnations are boho inspired. Frills, linen and voluminous shapes define the designs with & Other Stories and Never Fully Dressed leading the way.

While Rouje shows us how the French do midi skirts: slinky, slimline, and sexy.

We may not have the summer of our dreams but we think the clothing has never looked so good.
