1 Skirt, 3 Ways: How to Style a Mid-Length Skirt for Work, Weekend, and Travel

July 20, 2015

If you can make room in your closet for a mid-length skirt, we suggest you do so–immediately. It’s not the most “corporate” of looks, but it’s perfectly office-appropriate, and that’s exactly why we love it.

If you’ve never attempted this silhouette, fear not. It’s flattering, no matter what your height. Super tall? It will graze your upper calves. Quite petite? It will swing just above your ankles Either way, it’s a look that manages to be both super-cool and quite grown-up. Here’s how to style a mid-length skirt for work, weekend and travel.

At the office…

Impromptu jaunt to Europe…

You impulse-bought a plane ticket and you’re headed to Europe—tomorrow. (Nice work.)
