Midi skirts — that's a hemline that hits below the knees but above the lower calf — are an easy way to inject ladylike flair to your style. Since the style is notoriously tricky to pull off without feeling conservative, overly covered up, or, at worst, frumpy, we have the key tips on how to make this skirt flirty and fun (and office-appropriate, if that's what you need). Including solid, printed, muted, and bright colored styles, we culled 14 of our favorite picks for you to shop. But first, a few quick styling tips to help you nail the look every time.

  • We've focused on the classic circle silhouette because it's the most universally flattering.
  • Pleated waistlines can make you look wider at the hips, so look for a flat-front with an A-line shape if that's your problem area.
  • If you're on the taller side, go for a skirt that hits the calf, and if you're petite, choose one that's right below the knee.
  • Midi skirts look great with heels to help lengthen the leg, but a sweet flat or strappy sandal gives it a softer feel.
  • To balance out the longer hemline, we recommend pairing your midi skirt with a shorter, even cropped, top, or just try tucking your tee in.
