Midi skirts at work

The time has come to work midi skirts into my work wardrobe.  The question about styling them for work is what has kept me from wearing the few that have already made their way into my closet. While the midi pencil skirts are a no brainer, in terms of styling, how do you take the full midi skirts and make them look professional rather than sock hop ready?

Instead of pairing a full skirt with a button down and tucking it in I prefer a simple sweater, like the J. Crew tippi, and an edgier shoe, like this. Or, I would wear a full skirt with a slightly more relaxed top (like the Club Monaco look above), like this J. Crew cropped sweater, and pair it with a classic pump to keep the look work and client ready.

Would love to see how you pair yours!
