Jessica Alba’s day time look staple is a midi skirt. The 33-year-old couldn’t get enough of them. She finds these skirts as cute, versatile and functional as we do, wearing them when she takes her kids to the park or having corporate meetings for her Honest company.

If you are looking for ways on how to make the most out of your midi skirt, here are a few ideas inspired by the actress’ recent outfits:
