The midi skirt was the star garment for women during the 1950s. We all recognize those female figures from the past with well framed waist skirts below the knees, only revealing the ankles. Today, midi skirts take on different shapes and bring new nuances that create distinct varieties within the same skirts family: pencil skirts with side slits, mixed pleats, revealing slides and voluptuous tutus. 

But how can we wear these skirts? The first requirement to look good is to consider your height. Midi skirts can visually shorten the legs, so if you're not to tall, go just below the knee. Dressing in heels is also a good recommendation to stylize the body. 

The best friend of the midi skirt is the crop top, a piece that came back from the 1990s and combines perfectly with skirts and high-waisted pants. If you don't feel the crop top is for you, you can always pair it with a blouse or a shirt. The best thing about this skirt is that it emphasizes feminine shapes, framing the waist with a touch of elegance. 

For Spring/ Summer 2014, the midi skirts multiply with the promise of bringing glamour and sophistication to our closet. Designers and brands like Burberry Prorsum, Prada, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Céline and Louis Vuitton have chosen this piece for their season collections. And you? Will you surrender to the charm of the midi skirt?
