If you're a tall person, you know that skirts can be a tricky thing. Sometimes the hems are so short they look like ice skating uniforms, or certain lengths look shrunken when on your frame. But while it might be a trial, luckily there are plenty of midi skirts for tall people. Designed specifically for long frames, these skirts don't end up hovering above the knee like most fast-fashion picks. Instead, they sit where they're intended to sit, and allow you to add different lengths and proportions to your wardrobe.
There are a bevy of different styles to choose from, too. You can dabble in casual day skirts that flirt around your ankles, or fancy velvet numbers that could be contenders for any future holiday parties. There are slick pencil skirts and playful floral numbers that are begging to be clashed with equally bold prints. There are some that look minimalist, and still others that come in stark textures like leather. And each and every single one of them won't disappoint you on length. Ahead are 11 stylish and in-season midi skirts for tall people, offering you a list of brands that cater to your fabulous frame. Prepare to add these to your arsenal.
1. Button-Up Midi Skirt
2. Ruffled Floral Midi
For those who like to flirt with prints, a midi floral skirt for fall would be a perfect addition to one's wardrobe. To make your bottoms stand out from the racks of flower prints crowding stores, opt to try one with a ruffled bottom. It's a small detail, but it can completely elevate an outfit and make it feel a little less basic.
3. Block Suede Skirt
The Swinging Sixties always come back into vogue when the air gets nippier, and this suede block midi is a case in point. Rocking different shades of brown and a trendy zipper running down its length, this is an awesome option to pair with button downs or cozy knits.
4. Velvet & Mesh Skirt
It's harder to resist velvet as we come closer and closer to eggnog season, and this midi skirt brings it to a person's wardrobe in a fresh, new way. Coming in a pretty blue/slate gray hue, it also incorporates mesh paneling to give it a playful and young twist.
5. High Split Denim Skirt
6. Olive Pleated Skirt
In order to compliment the dark, fall hues that are in your wardrobe, consider investing in an olive pleated skirt. The simple staple will help those cranberries and burnt oranges in your blouses pop against the dark color, and make you feel like you walked off an Autumn editorial in a magazine.
7. Mermaid Flair Skirts
Canvas skirts bring a utility-like flair to an outfit, making the look feel a little more militant and tough. That's why when such a skirt has a frilly mermaid tail, it becomes all the more interesting because of the unexpected contrast. Pair it with a white t-shirt and ankle booties and you're good to go.
8. Saffron Floral Skirt
For those who have a penchant for bright colors and sweet, feminine designs, this saffron-yellow floral skirt checks every box.
9. Leather Midi Skirt
Fall is all about texture: Suede, velvet, and of course, leather. If you're a tall person, you probably understand just how hard it is to find a pencil skirt that actually hits you below — not above — the knees. This leather option does just that, and has a stylish slit down the middle that allows you to move unrestricted.
10. Cotton Frill Midi Skirt
If you feel like looking like a Ralph Lauren extra in a Vogue ad, this cotton frill midi skirt can get you there. Coming in an easy-to-mix-and-match khaki color, its frill is just enough to add interest to an outfit without making you feel like you're trying on a five-year-old's wardrobe.
11. Black & White Striped Midi
Stripes never go out of style, no matter what season it is. This a-line midi skirt offers the horizontal black and white lines we all crave, which look extra fun when paired with bright colors or clashed against other prints.
No matter your height, you can enjoy a midi skirt that comes in all different types of aesthetics, styles, and sizes. Your only problem is going to be whittling down the choices!
