The humble midi skirt is one of the most frequently worn items in our closet. It’s sophisticated and comfortable and, well, just so pretty. But what the hell do I wear it with? you ask. With these five tops, we answer.
A WHITE BUTTON-DOWN
One of our wardrobe’s most versatile components, a crisp white button-down, looks just as chic with boyfriend jeans as it does with a pleated midi. To keep it from looking too business-y, cuff the sleeves—the right way.
A GRAY T-SHIRT
Uh, can we wear this every day? Half tomboy, half girlie girl: A simple gray tee tucked into a pretty midi is a combination that will never let you down. Why gray and not white? Well, technically any color works—gray is just the least expected.
A BOXY CROP TOP
This silhouette helps show off only the slightest hint of skin. Whereas a tight-fitting crop might look a little much , a boxier version is more relaxed and age-appropriate.
A RUFFLED BLOUSE
Say hello to your new favorite office look. The skirt doesn’t have to be patterned and the top doesn’t have to be neon, but the general idea of tucking a ladylike blouse into a silky midi (and adding classic pumps for good measure) is a formula you can rely on all the time.
A SLOUCHY SWEATER
Ideal for a cooler day, we love this outfit’s proportions. Just be sure to tuck the front of your sweater into your skirt to avoid being swallowed by all the fabric.
