The midi skirt is swiftly becoming popular in the fashion world again (the first time being the 50s). However, many women are hesitant to adopt this trend because they feel that it’s unflattering, frumpy or they just don’t know what to pair this feminine garment with.
Midi skirts are a great transitional piece; they look classy as work wear because of the refined cut, perfect for a weekend away, to meet the parents or even during the day. There is something for everyone and every occasion.
To make it easier to adopt this stylish trend we have some savvy styling tricks for you. The most important being shoes! Because of the length of the skirt you need to elongate your legs and show off your calves, and the easiest way to do this is with a good pair of heels.
You can have fun with your shoes; if your skirt is a neutral tone add a pop of colour with your footwear and the higher the heel the better because the footwear really becomes the focal point of your ensemble.
Because the midi skirt covers up a lot of skin, it is always good to balance the look with a form-fitting top or a skin-baring top such a crop top. This will balance your shape and silhouette.
Cropped jackets and leather jackets also look great when paired with midi skirts. The wonderful thing about these skirts is that they accentuate your waist and the streamlined effect is actually very flattering.
If you want to look even more refined but like an old Hollywood beauty, why not pair your midi skirt with sheer stockings which will make you look as sensual as Ava Gardner.
Avoid looking frumpy by pairing your outfit with stylish accessories, the elegance and femininity of the look requires simple touches. Such as pearl drop earrings or a a tiny box clutch to complete the look.
