A midiskirt hits just below the knees and the calf-grazing silhouette can be worn all year round. The best part about this style is that it can be worn everywhere: the hem makes it appropriate for the office and its fun details and finishes (read: pleats, leather, and thigh-high slits) can make it cocktail-hour ready. It is a true day-to-night staple.

To maximize your midiskirt style, pair it with a crisp button front shirt or a chunky, maybe even slouchy, knit—these pairings are great for work. If you want to add a youthful, unexpected edge to your look for a night out, team it with a too-cool graphic tee and a moto jacket.

Because the midi hits at your knee, or just below it, your shoe choice is key. To elongate your legs, opt for a pump—or if heels aren't your thing, a streamlined brogue. The idea here is to show some ankle.

The midiskirt is a shape that will never go out of style, so stock up by shopping our gallery.Runway inspiration (at top, from left): Victoria Beckham, Hugo Boss, Fendi, Marni.
