Cheap and Cheerful is a weekly column that highlights the chicest inexpensive finds. Because nothing’s more satisfying than looking good while spending less.
Have the pants you bought in April ceased to bring you joy? Did you just unpack last year’s sweaters, only to discover they’re covered with unsightly piling? Is it taking you way too long to get dressed in the morning? You might be suffering from Fall Closet Syndrome, the malaise that comes when the weather turns and you suddenly hate all of your clothes. You could overhaul your entire wardrobe, but a more cost-effective cure for the seasonal rut is to buy a cool midi skirt or two.
Because of the elegant length, putting on a midi skirt instantly makes you feel more stylish and put-together. Midi skirts are conservative enough for work, fun enough for a date, and comfortable enough for the weekend. Even if you have a few in your closet already, you can always justify buying more, especially because you can find plenty of nice ones for less than $100. Scroll below to see our favorites of the season.
