History about the Midi Skirt 
 Midi skirts are characterized by their length, which can reach anywhere from just below the knee to mid-calf. The midi skirt was a popular length in the 1940s, a fashion decade known for its elegance and grace. By the ’60s, the midi was out, replaced by the more revealing and progressive mini skirt.
The midi tried its best, but its reincarnation in the 1970s was a flop. Thankfully, designers have injected new life into this trend for 2011, highlighting its ladylike attributes and flexible wearability with a range of fabrics and creative styling to suit just about anyone.
Styled correctly, this trend is at the forefront of sophistication. A midi is a great piece to have if you’d like to change up your look a little, and look classy while doing so! Make sure to balance out the length of the skirt by choosing one with a high waist or using a belt to create shape. Add some additional pop in the footwear department. Think boots, oxfords, or a great pair of heels.
Will you rock the midi skirt trend?
