The Midi Skirts Trend Is Going Nowhere, And These Are Our Top Picks To Prove It
Satin slips, animal print and pleats: f you’re still here for the women's midi skirt trend just as much as we are, then you’ll want to have a look at our edit of the best midi skirts that influencers are loving right now
Pretty In Pleats
Pleats are the latest midi skirt trend to hit our fashion news feeds, and we're smug as ever since these pretty pieces are pretty timeless too. Keep it cool in muted creams and soft greys for a sophisticated and simple look that works for every occasion. Feeling a little bold? Pleats are seriously defined when paired with a strong colour - our personal pick has to be this season's trending turmeric orange.
Satin Bias Favourites
A huge winter trend becomes even more suitable for this upcoming season. The satin bias midis, practically made famous by Topshop, are now everywhere to be seen, and we predict that they'll be sticking around for a while longer. Keep it cute in sweet summer pastels, or liven things up with a hint of florals.
Slinky Side Slits
Where simple, slender slips skirts have dominated, they have had a little pick-me-up for this season with extra details and embellishments. The biggest trending detail of all? A sensual side split has become increasingly popular for spring and summer. Who doesn't love to show off a little bit of leg? Perfect for showcasing your tan.
Wild For Animal Print
The biggest trend of last year has happily rolled into 2019, and still stands strong. Animal print midi skirts are still crowd pleasers for the upcoming seasons, and if you haven't had a taste of leopard, zebra and snake print, then now's your chance.
The Pattern Pleasers
Are the other skirts lacking in some character and uniqueness? Go for something more fun and patterned, and if it sports an asymmetric hem that's an added plus! We love the understated pairing of a printed midi with a crisp white cotton shirt. Just add a bright geometric mini bag to make it pop!
