As the hardest-working item in every woman’s closet, the midi skirt is not only universally flattering, but it also boasts the kind of wear-with-anything appeal that makes it a styling essential. Take your cues from Parisian designer Chloé Harrouche of Loulou Studio and accentuate the midi skirt’s utilitarian overtones by pairing one with an oxford shirt and this season’s fail-safe sandals or mules for an outfit that works for all manner of occasions. If it’s a more feminine look you’re after, let a luxurious silk slip skirt bring a touch of drama to your daytime look, à la model Adut Akech, who wore hers with a statement blazer for a refined spin on model-off-duty style. Looking to update your workwear wardrobe? Heritage checks make for an office-appropriate take on the trend. Follow in the stylish footsteps of Italian influencer Erika Boldrin and wear yours with open-toed heels, finishing with a sculptural bag for a look that transitions seamlessly from desk to dinner.
