We’re debunking a fashion myth at Glamour today: You don’t have to be taller than 5’4 to wear a midi skirt. Midlength skirts are one of our favorite spring fashion trends, and they’re going to continue well into the fall. So if you haven’t rocked the work-perfect look yet because you think you’re too short to pull it off, keep reading below for style tips that will make it work.
Midi Skirt + Crop Top
The sliver of exposed skin works wonders at breaking up the midi look; so you don’t feel overwhelmed with lots of fabric. We love how Vanessa Hudgens sports hers—and she appears way taller than her actual height of 5’1.
The Illusion Midi Skirt
Take it from Anna Kendrick ,whose 5’2 frame is lengthened with a knee-length pencil skirt with sheer overlay. The overlay extends to the mid calf, making it part midi, part pencil skirt.
The Printed Midi Skirt
An airy print like AnnaSophia Robb (who’s 5’0) is a terrific choice. Partner it up with a fitted T-shirt and a blazer or car coat on top for work.
