Why The Wraparound Midi Skirt Is My New Night Out Staple

Why The Wraparound Midi Skirt Is My New Night Out Staple

Midi skirts have been huge over the past couple of seasons, and there have been a lot of different styles I've been loving, especially through the summer months. Just before I went to Mallorca, I picked up a couple of new things to wear for going out in the evenings, one of which was this scarf print wraparound midi skirt. I don't usually go for bold prints, but something about this skirt just appealed to me, and it ended up being one of my favourite night out pieces and a staple in my holiday wardrobe.

While I really do love the striking print, it wasn't the main reason why I found myself reaching for this skirt so often.

First of all, there's the length. Midi skirts are so easy to wear and so elegant too - add even the smallest heel and you'll instantly look feminine and graceful. While maxi skirts can sometimes be tricky to style and mini skirts can be a little too... well, mini, there's something about midi skirts that always feels effortless.

Secondly, there's the shape. Now we all know I love to twirl around in something floaty, but the sleeker lines of this skirt are just that little bit sexier, and sometimes that's what you want for a night out.

At the same time, the wraparound element adds a touch of fun and just lifts the piece out of corporate pencil skirt territory, in my opinion. I really love the tie detail of this River Island number as it allows you to adjust the fit perfectly to skim your hips. And just for reassurance, it actually fastens with a zip at the back, so there's no danger of any mishaps!

Below, I've put together a selection of some of my favourite wraparound midi skirts on the high street right now. I think any of them would be simple to style up for an evening out. Just add a sleek black or white top, a pair of heels and maybe a slick of red lipstick. Voila!


Are you a fan of this skirt style?

  6. It's such a beautiful skirt and looks great on you! I love the print, and the style is so nice for a night out! I really like this style of skirt, I have a tulip hem wrap dress I love but any time I've tried it in a skirt it's never sat right and beena little too revealing for running around with toddlers, haha! Maybe I should try the style again now I'm back at work!

    Hope that you have a great weekend ahead of you! It's going to be a rainy one here!

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, some wraparounds don't feel too secure! This one is great though, the part that ties up is actually separate over an additional layer of fabric so your modesty is protected! x
