Make It A Midi

For Straight Figures

Add volume to a boyish figure by opting for a full-skirted midi with an asymmetric hem. Feminine add-ons keep the look polished.

For Hourglass Figures

Accentuate an hourglass shape with a slim, high-waisted silhouette. Wear with sophisticated pastels and a structured bag at work.

For Apple Shapes

A paper-bag waist flatters figures that are fuller in the middle. Team with a flowing top and streetwise accessories for off-duty cool.

For Pear Shapes

A flowing, A-line skirt is a foolproof choice for pear shapes. Style with a fitted knit and flatform sandals on the weekend.

For Smaller Hips

A mid-length pencil skirt works well on those with slimmer hips. Balance a bold print with neutral hues for springtime chic.
