I’m obsessed with the midi skirt – you only have to type my name in the emirateswoman.com search bar and at least four snaps of me wearing a calf length number will pop up. 

I think the modest hemline is perfect for an office environment. It’s also chic for a date night and, when paired with the right heels, it’s on trend for a night of cocktails with the girls.

It’s not just me who loves this trend; browse the latest catwalks and you’ll find models sashaying down the runway wearing fit and flare styles, super-sleek pencil skirts and wet-look pleather.

It’s a length that can be worn by anyone, but beware petite ladies: when worn with flat shoes you run the risk of looking frumpy.
