Shocking minis and breezy maxis had their time to shine, but now it’s the midis turn to bask in the glow of a lovely spring day. OK, that was a little dramatic, but you catch our drift. If this awkward length sounds, well, awkward, it might be beneficial to technically define what a midi is (we like definitions)—it’s a skirt that’s too short to be long and too long to be short. Say that 10 times fast. The garment tiptoes between secretarial and over-the-top elegant. But to be completely honest, it’s one of the most difficult lengths to pull off. Since it cuts off smack dab in the middle of your gams, it can make calves look GINORMOUS. Thank goodness for these style bloggers who show us a few brilliant ways to rock a midi.

Believe it or not, but vintage style blogger Jo—an Aussie living in the North West of the UK—is the mother of three little BOYS. We know! How could it be?! There’s no baseball caps, camo prints and sneakers in this pretty mama’s closet. Jo looks über-ladylike in a vintage cropped knit top and patterned midi skirt, which she teamed with black high-heel sandals, a sunhat, and a classic clutch.

While visiting her family on their farm, Noelani (a Boston-based blogger) dressed the part (with a citified twist). The self-proclaimed Francophile partnered a burnt orange asymmetrical midi from Topshop with a navy polka dot blouse, a Forever 21 studded jacket (that we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention cost her ONLY $8.99), and a pair of leather chocolate calf boots. Yeehaw!
Holly Hopkins of Fashion in the Fog
You’d never guess it, but Holly, a Canadian blogger, has an affinity for affordability. She scored her khaki button-down midi at a thrift store for $4.99, and her ENTIRE ensemble (organic cotton top, bow belt, flats, and jewelry) cost less than $40. Ummmm, Holly, call us the next time you go shopping. Seriously.
