MIDI: Trends S/S ‘13

Posted by: Veronica Maya

In the 1950’s the MIDI revolutionized the way women wore skirts, in the 1960s it was also hot stuff and now it’s really making a comeback.

This particular length of the skirt is what makes it so special as it reaches just below the knee and emphasizes the most important of all accessories: your shoes.


Whether it’s in a skirt or dress design, this trend was present on the most important runways of both F/W 2012 and S/S 2012 and now for S/S 2013 it is an absolute must for your wardrobe.

Come with us to check out the hottest MIDI designs showcased by international designers on the SS 2013 runways.

The origin of this trend is considered to be the bell dress form. Here we can see how some present day designers are able to perfectly capture the origin of this trend and express it through their dress designs.

The most exciting part of this trend is the new forms of the MIDI dress such as the straight and tight fitting midi which was most common on the runways and made its mark in the collections of Marc Jacobs, Chloé and Calvin Klein to name just a few.
