You’re familiar with the mini, the midi and the maxi – but what does midaxi mean?
The hemline started making waves in 2019 after it appeared on the catwalk at Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs’ AW19 shows, and the style has become a regular on the high street ever since with brands including Never Fully Dressed, Nasty Gal and ASOS following suit.
Here, we explain what the midaxi actually is and where you can get the look.
What is a midaxi?
A midaxi is a hemline of a dress or skirt that’s in between the midi and maxi. It sits just above the ankle and below the mid-calf.
The hemline is versatile and seasonless, teamed with knee-high boots in winter or sandals in the summer months.
Despite the midaxi arriving way back in 2019, it’s still very much trending.
Here are some of the most affordable and stylish midaxi options on the high street now.
