Falling in between floor-sweeping maxis and above-the-knee minis, they are a perfect add to your style. “Midi skirts are making a comeback.

Midis work across occasions. From date nights to brunch with the ladies, the look is a clear winner. “To add a romantic feel, we add frills and slits in the skirts. Midis can be worn with a crop top and basic shirts. One can also add belts to highlight the waist,” adds designer Hemant Lalwani of designer duo Hemant-Nandita.
