Midi skirts are mid-calf length skirts, first made popular in the 1950s - which is now making it's come back for the fall autumn season.
The midi skirt received some attention in the wake of the 30’s revival brought on by the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde. Faye Dunaway’s role as a sexy gangster’s moll, decked out in 30’s-era midi skirts, sweaters, and berets helped to hold off the midi’s imminent demise. The sleek style of the midi was carried into the 70’s, when more of an ‘anything goes’ attitude was adopted by the fashion conscious. Minis, maxis, midis, and micros could be mixed up and worn any day of the week. Mini or midi skirts overlaid with a flowing maxi-coat became a popular way to intermingle the different lengths.
