10 Midi Skirts To Get Your Swish On

It may still technically be spring, but with the sun starting to make more appearances, we can’t help but think about our summer wardrobes coming out of hibernation. This is not to say it’s heatwave shorts-and-sandals time yet — but maybe soon. Until then, how do you dress when it’s ‘hot in the sun, but cold in the shade’? Boom: the midi skirt.

Just as the name implies, midi skirts are perfectly in the middle. They expose just the right amount of lower leg, which allows for breezy relief when temps peak during mid-day, but still leaves you appropriately covered up for when the chill sets in after sundown.

To get you merrily on your way to embracing the middle of things, we’ve got 10 non-matronly midis. Just tuck in a T-shirt and slip on some comfy kicks. Here’s to ushering in the warm weather in style.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by us.
