Whistlers, Dhs 540. Avoid bat wings or big shoulders as the length makes enough of a statement, so pair with a slick vest or camisole.

F or those of you who like nothing more than to get your pins out, look away now. The mid-length skirt is currently having a bit of moment – and if it’s good enough for Hollywood’s coolest starlets, it’s good enough for us!

Don’t fret about frumpiness – there are plenty of ways to spruce up your midi without looking like your grandma. Add a pair of tight fitting ankle boots (Zara has plenty) for instant sass, or look to stars like Camilla Belle, whose pleated leather midi and embellished cami oozed modern foxiness.

And if the thought of being so covered up fills you with dread, how about a versatile button through or wrap version, which allows for a little flesh flashing whilst maintaining your on-trend status? Simple!
