Plus Size Midi Skirts Are STILL In
Hello lovelies! Fall is quickly turning into winter and I am scrambling to wear all of the cute stuff I bought at the top of the season. One trend that I refuse to let go of is a good plus size midi skirt. I actually featured the midi skirt in my Great Day SA TV segment from late October. And I stand by it! Midi skirts are universally flattering and can be dressed up and dressed down very easily. You can wear it to work, happy hour, date night, running errands. The midi skirt is one of the MOST versatile pieces in my wardrobe.
How (and Where) to find the Perfect Plus Size Midi Skirt
In case you’re wondering, Jess, where do I even BUY a midi skirt? Don’t worry babe, I got you! And if you are looking for affordable options, then, again, I got you! I have included midi skirts at all price points. To be honest and frank, the midi skirt I’m wearing in all of these photos is from Forever21. One of me best purchases this year.
I got it way back in JULY for under $20. Yes. Under $20 and it has been worth every penny. I’m glad I snapped it up when I did, because it sold out literally in a few days. They haven’t brought it back (which irks my nerves – what gives, Forever 21?!) but they have released a few others – check the bottom of this post for a ton of skirts up to a size 26W.
So, where do I buy my midi skirts? It depends on what my coins are looking like (ahem…) but for an affordable plus size midi skirt lewk, I have been LOVING NastyGal. Seriously. I think they came out with extended sizing last year and they have become a go-to for me for affordable plus size pieces. They only go up to a size US20 and the sizing is all over the place, but I still like it. For a pricier option, Anthropologie has some really good options. Life Hack: wait for a sale FIRST.
So what do I look for in a good midi skirt? It’s a few simple things:
- One with a THICK elastic waistband, so it won’t slide up or down
- One in either a trumpet shape (slightly flared at the bottom) or a slight A-shape. This is because of my personal shape, TBH. I am bottom heavy and having a skirt that flares away at the bottom helps balance me out
- One that FITS. Please, please, buy a midi skirt that fits; even size up if you can. A slightly looser midi skirt will look good, especially if you want to tuck anything into the skirt
Go Forth and Wear Your Midi Skirt!
