Midaxi Skirts To Shop This Winter

This catwalk favourite is now huge on the high street and it even has the royal seal of approval with Kate Middleton spotted in the trend. So here’s how to wear this season’s must-have piece…

Somewhere between the midi and the maxi skirt is the ‘midaxi.’ Confused? Don’t be. A midaxi is the kind of skirt that falls significantly below the knee but definitely isn’t really long enough to be categorised as a maxi, hence the portmanteau.

The in-between trend featured heavily on the AW18 catwalks, where hemlines swished seductively around models’ calves everywhere from Lanvin and Emilia Wickstead – making a case for the elegant evening midaxi skirt – to Simone Rocha and JW Anderson, where asymmetrical and hanky hems wowed the LFW crowd.

There’s lots of variety with midaxi-length skirts on the high street, too.

Pleats are very popular. A satin or faux leather skirt is versatile choice for winter – wear it with slouchy boots and knitwear by day, or heels and an off-the-shoulder top for evening.

As for prints, stripes add a sporty feel, or you can tap into the animal print trend and pair your skirt with a block colour blouse.

Here’s our pick of the top midaxi skirts to shop this season…
