Although it has been championed by big-name designers and leggy ladies for a few seasons now, the midi skirt has earned quite the rep for being a piece that only certain women can wear. Sure, a mid-calf hemline can be tricky to master if you don't have model-esque gams — but it's not impossible, and we've done some studious sartorial research to prove it.
The real key here is to experiment with skirt lengths — sticking with options that range from just below the knee to just above the ankle — until you find the hemline that hits your leg at a flattering point. Once you've discovered the sweet spot, so to speak, all you need to do is find the perfect skirt ... and, of course, we've done that part for you. Ahead, a bounty of beautiful midi skirts you can wear to work, out at night, and on the weekends, plus the savvy styling tricks you can use to make them perfect for every single one of those occasions.
