Move Over, Midi Skirts- Knee-Length Hems Return To The Catwalk

In the past couple of seasons, mid-length hems have been dominating the runways. As we transition into Spring 23017, midi hemlines just may seem themselves sharing the spotlight with knee-length skirts. Although the timeless hemline has been a staple in women’s wardrobes for years, knee-length hems are quickly gaining popularity again. If you want to show off your toned legs, look no further than these runway looks as you revamp your spring outfits now.

Casual Chic

For the weekend, the Jil Sander runway provides all the inspiration for a chic yet wearable take on this moderate skirt length. Slip into a ribbed lightweight turtleneck dress in a nude hue, and pair your frock with a matching camel leather jacket. For a finishing touch, a creamy white leather satchel and a pair of ankle strap heels can offer a polished and feminine effect.

Work Wear

There’s nothing quite like the nautical colour combination of navy and white, particularly as we settle into gradually warmer temperatures. Draw your influences from the Tibi catwalk, and step out in knee-length ivory skirt detailed with contrasting metallic buttons. Meanwhile, a dark blue blouse accented with dramatic puffed sleeves can seal the deal and wrap up your sartorial statement for the business day.


For the after hours, step out in a beige knee-length frock complete with embellishment and sequins (as seen at Prada). The inclusion of a fur stole and strappy black sandals add a decorative effect, while the beadwork adds glamour to an otherwise conservative frock.
