Skirts can be a tricky item to wear: Don't have the legs to wear a mini? Can't stand the thought of a maxi? Luckily this season, a new silhouette is making its mark. The midi skirt may seem more 1950's than 2013, but it's taking the runway and the street by storm. Spotted at the Prada, Céline, and Rochas F/W 2013 shows, the midi skirt is best worn with a pair of heels and (our favorite), a cropped angora sweater. But whichever way you prefer to style your skirt, make sure it's a midi this season.
