Meet my summer fashion secret...the midi skirt! Nothing quite evokes the image of the fifties like the full body midi skirt. And in case you were wondering, I tend to pull most of my style inspiration from the fifties. Style back then was so elegant and conservative. I think I was born in the wrong decade! Don't get me wrong, I love mini skirts too, but midis are more practical. You can wear them to work, to brunch with friends, and even to a wedding. I love how graceful it looks when paired with pumps and ladylike jewels.
Traditionally, the midi falls below the knee or even a few inches above the ankles. When shopping for midis, it's best to search for a style that will suit your waistline. If you have wide hips, opt for a skirt with an elastic. This will help keep you comfortable. The whole point of the midi skirt is to cinch your mid-section and emphasize your curves, all while lengthening those gorgeous gams.
How to style: pair with tight-fitting tops (crop-tops are truly the best mate for midi skirts). To edge up the look, try adding deeper colored accessories, or purchase a clutch with leather detailing. I think there is something so simple and classic about a white lacey skirt paired with leather.
