I have a long-standing affection for midi skirts. They work in all seasons, are easy to mix and match, have some retro vibes, and are SUPER versatile. Which I’m going to talk about in today’s post.
In the past I was more attracted to full midi skirts, which I thought were great for work and dressing up. But recently I’ve been drawn to more of a 90s floral, button front style that doesn’t have as much volume. Head to any thrift store and I’m sure you’ll find one. This white one with pink and blue flowers is from the brand Woolrich (more known for their wool sweaters, as the name suggests) and was $5 at my local thrift store. Midi skirts can be easier to find secondhand since they only need to really fit at the waist and flow out from there.
Here are also some cute options if you’re not a thrifter:
I really couldn’t wait to start styling it even though it’s a bit cold still here in Colorado, so I thought I’d share 3 ways a floral midi can work.
1. Floral Midi Skirt for Running Errands
Generally a floral midi skirt comes across as feminine, but paired with a graphic tee and white sneaks? It’s a whole new look! I’ve been seeing this style lately with the leopard midi skirts that are super popular right now (like this outfit here), but I also think a floral skirt is just as cute.
I imagine this outfit would be great for any normal spring/summer day where you’re out and about getting stuff done, like errands, brunch, thrifting, walking the dog…I could go on!
3. Floral Midi Skirt for Date Night
Honestly, I don’t go on that many date nights – we’ve lately been more takeout-and-drink-on-the-couch kinda people (even before COVID-19 social distancing). But if my husband and I did go on a date night this summer, this would be my look! And if you’re not a heels gal, you could wear strappy flat sandals instead.
3. Floral Midi Skirt for the Office
How cute is this for a spring/summer work look? It’s so easy to tuck in a collared shirt to this skirt and throw on some pointed toe pumps to instantly make it more professional. I think a chambray shirt could also work, as well as a white sleeveless collared shirt — it all depends on your office and what’s appropriate there.
There you have it! Three ways to style a thrifted floral midi skirt.
