Mini? Maxi? Midi!

First there was the mini, then there was the maxi, and now there is the midi. The midi hemline emerged in the fashion world this year, making appearances on runways and celebrities alike. A midi skirt or dress reaches mid-calf, hitting right between knees and ankles.

And while this longer hemline may seem matronly, it is anything but. Jessica Alba, Alexa Chung, Keira Knightly, and Kristen Cavallari prove a midi dress can make a statement with bold prints, embellishments, and luxe fabrics. For a night out or even a more formal occasion, opt for the classic body con dress with a midi hemline.
