Three IMAGE staffers demonstrate how to wear a midi skirt to work, dinner and a date
I have forgotten about the simple joy of skirts. I’m a trousers kind-of-woman by nature but lately, I have been unprecedently excited for bare legs and flowing hemlines. There are no “wrong” skirts: mini skirts are great on occasional outings, but it’s longer hem lengths that offer a kind of sassy polish – an ageless elegance. A midi skirt is the unsung hero of any wardrobe. The boldest way to wear a midi skirt? A toughened-up pair of knee-high boots, a delicate knit or a vintage chunky knit jumper in the perfect shade of millennial pink. A simple (or not so simple) one has transformative powers and here are three IMAGE staffers – and their favourite midi – to prove it.

I would have never thought of myself as a ‘midi-skirt’ type of woman, but since they’ve exploded in popularity this summer, I’m really getting into them. A year or so ago, I would have thought of midi-skirts as making me look like a nun crossed with Little House on the Prairie, but having seen how they can be styled to look young and fresh, I’m sold. A midi skirt is actually very agile and easy to wear; simply throw one on and your whole outfit is done. Not to mention how comfortable they are to wear too; the right midi skirt keeps me going from early-morning meetings to after-work cocktails. The way I style my look might not be for everyone, but leopard print and pink is basically my uniform, so I feel really great in this!
