How To Wear Midi Skirts, From The Girl Who Hates Them

I’ll say it: I’ve never worn a midi skirt in my entire life. Or a maxi skirt, to be honest (besides prom). I’ve just always been a mini skirt/dress/whatever type of gal, and it’s likely to do with the fact that I’m 5”4′. Anything longer, and I look like I’m being swallowed whole. With the help of Instagram, I’ve become more open to varied lengths in my wardrobe. I even got a Paco Rabanne midi dress! With a very high slit, of course. Here are some of the best combos I found, and how to recreate them:
