A midi skirt is a tricky piece of clothing to wear. The length isn't short enough for people to see your legs (it's not as sexy as a mini, obviously), but it's not as dramatic as a floor-grazing gown, either. Truth is, midi skirts should only be worn by people who have Victoria's Secret model legs. And not everyone has that.
During Philippine Fashion Week SS2015, we spotted radio host Andi Manzano-Reyes WERQ-ing a leather midi (H&M) with a peasant top (Forever 21) and lace-up heels (Zara)—and she looked gooood.
Andi isn't a tall girl. But the reason why the skirt worked on her petite frame is because it had *drumroll* accordion pleats, which drew attention to her legs—making them look longer. That, and she wore nude heels.
Think the length is too, well, long? Pick a midi skirt that falls right below the knee, so people still see more of your legs.
