YES YOU CAN: Wear the on-trend midi

Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.

If, like me, you worry about whether the midi skirt is a flattering go-to, panic not – the key is to find the style that balances out your proportions. Fuller hips love a structured, wider skirt; slender ones look great in a more fluid fabric that falls to mid-calf, and most body shapes suit a classic A-line. Always try it on with different shoes to make sure you feel confident in both flats and heels.
