Midi skirts

If we talk about length, then surely the leader turned out to be the midi length, which was chosen by connoisseurs and gurus of fashion as Alice and Olivia, Altuzarra, Max Mara,A Détacher, Christopher Kane, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Dolce & Gabbana, Edeline Lee, Apiece Apart, 1205, Barbara Casasola, Thakoon, Ermanno Scervino, Creatures of the Wind, Chanel, Brock Collection.

As we can see in fashion shows midi skirts may have the most diverse cut and style – from the classic pencil skirts to loose skirts in new look style.

Wrap skirts are enjoying an unprecedented popularity, which can be easily explained by the fact that such model fits all fashionistas without exception.
