Sometimes, the gulf between midi skirts and miniskirts can seem huge. Styled incorrectly, a midi skirt can feel like the frumpiest item of clothing in the world. And miniskirts just get dubbed ‘inappropriate’ no matter how they’re styled. There’s no winning. Uness, that is, you take to wearing a midi skirt with a slit. Whether it’s plain and silk or floral and cotton, a midi skirt with a slit meets us halfway. On that note, here are some of the best.

THE SILK ONE

SILKED is a new brand specialising in – to no one’s surprise at all – silk pieces. And their sapphire bias cut midi skirt (with a slit, of course) is particularly sumptuous. We’ll be wearing ours with the coordinating shirt.

THE GLAMOROUS ONE

We’re in dire need of glamour after the year that’s just passed. This Versace skirt overflows with the stuff.

THE TRANSITIONAL ONE

While we’re currently experiencing the seasonal transition in which clothes are slowly removed, it won’t be forever. This wool skirt by Monse will be worn with bare legs now and tights later.

THE STUDDED ONE

Tell me about it, stud. No, seriously, tell me about it. And I’ll tell you about this studded skirt by Maje. It’s a fair trade.

THE UNIQUE ONE

What could be better than a midi skirt with a slit made from upcycled vintage towels? Absolutely nothing, if Rave Review has anything to do with it.

THE SUSTAINABLE ONE

If sustainability is what you seek, we recommend renting a Nanushka skirt from Hurr Collective.

THE cheapest ONE

Not only is this linen Zara skirt the cheapest on our list, it’s also the sexiest. That dress has finally been usurped.

THE WESTERN ONE

Beloved Paloma Wool! Who can be surprised that they do a midi skirt with a slit as lovely as this?

THE FLORAL ONE

We could not publish this article without including a floral option. Reformation is perfect for that sort of thing.

THE DENIM ONE

How do you tell people you’re hardy without telling them you’re hardy? A denim Isabel Marant Étoile skirt.
