We’ve waxed poetic about the wonder that is the midi skirt. The universally flattering silhouette works for literally every body shape—yes, even for petites, who needn’t worry that the longer length will cut them off (and if one does, the tailor is your friend)—and comes in myriad iterations, from denim to floral to utility-inspired. We love these skirts for their versatility, too. They’re brilliant at the office, can be sexy for date night and even work off-duty with basics like tanks, tees and slides. Oh, and for summer, they’re faultless in scorching weather: Pair with a lightweight top, gorgeous earrings and easy shoe. Okay, you get it—we’re officially obsessed, so it makes sense that we curated five fresh outfits for warm weather. Whether you gravitate toward minimal, graphic or super girly, there’s something for you; get your inspo ahead.
