Midi Skirts for Petites

Midi Skirts for Petites


The Midi skirt is everywhere at the moment and it’s in a variety of shapes and forms; tubes, a- lines, low hems, peplums, full volumes, in knits, tulles, woven, neoprene and leathers. The styles and styling options are endless, between the contemporary, romantic, vintage, high-low and everyday looks.

Midi skirts are one of the many styling options shorter women are constantly told to avoid. But honestly, rules are made to be broken, especially a rule as dated as this one. A full skirt like the one I’m wearing in this picture would traditionally overwhelm a diminutive figure like mine. Instead, I worked with the silhouette to my advantage and delivered a polished ‘effortless’ look.

On that note here are my favourite midis, from tea-length skirts to sexy slit silhouettes, that work for petite frames. (click on the links)

– Go for an A-Line – This should definitely be a go to for all Petites! The mesh-like fabric is longer than the lining which gives the illusion of longer legs. Remember to choose a higher waist to create even longer legs!!!!  At £25.00 you can’t go wrong.

– Wrap it up – It’s always best to have fabric cling on to you and wrap midi skirt naturally shapes your figure in all the right places without letting anything drag. I love the colour on this one gorgeous!!

– Sexy slit – If you got it, flaunt it but not too much there’s a thin line between classy and trashy when it comes to slits. Lol. Elongate your legs with high and low slits. Remember to keep it CLASSY!! x

– The Classic Pencil Skirt – Always a flattering option that shows off your curves. Invest in a black staple piece, but switch things up with pastel hues, leather or sheer fabrics. Zara has a couple of leather Pencil Skirts this season check it out. If you’re going to do leather pencil skirt remember to break it up a little. Do not wear a leather skirt, with leather knee high boots and leather jacket, unless if you’re going for the Matrix look! Eeeeeeeek!
