A couple of weeks ago, I began the exciting yet somewhat arduous task of unpacking the spring / summer pieces I stored away when temperatures began their decent. (For the record, it was early December.)  As I pulled out piece after piece, pondering how or if one dons a camisole while still breastfeeding, I stumbled upon my favorite linen midi skirt.  It turns out that at some point during pregnancy I thought it would be a good idea to take a pair of scissors to the waistband.  Why?! Pregnancy brain at it’s finest folks and now here I am lamenting my midi and on the hunt for one worthy of taking it’s place in the ranks of my closet. Do you own a midi skirt?  I’m putting them right up there in the must have core closet pieces with a great white tee. They’re practical. They’re versatile. You can style them so very many, many ways. (See evidence below.) Should you find yourself in your third trimester and needing a little lot more room, however, do yourself a favor and don’t take matter into your own hands.

(Also, a shopping round up at the end– all under $100!)

What is the best style midi skirt for me?

Midi skirts come in lots of different shapes and styles, and it’s important to chose one that compliments your figure. If you are petite, go for one that is a shorter length to elongate your legs. If you have curves, go for one that skims over your hips and if you have smaller hips, go for a straighter shape.

What are the best shoes to wear with midi skirts?

As you see, midi skirts can be both casual and formal, so pair your footwear accordingly. A more casual look and sneakers will make the look effortless and heels will lengthen your legs.
