I can officially confirm that midi skirts are my favorite item to wear. What started as a trend last fall has continued into the warm-weather months – and into my closet. With living in the city and surviving the wind tunnels that exist between the buildings a longer skirt has been my savior. Trust me, the whole Marilyn Monroe moment on the streets of downtown isn’t as glamorous as it looks.
Fit-wise the thicker waistbands tend to emphasize the waist the best. I also try to look for an A-line style that flows out from the waist and lands right around the mid-calf. This style lands for a very feminine silhouette that’s flattering on anyone!
It’s always important to pair the fuller skirt with a tighter top. I tend to rock mine with a v-neck tee tucked in to keep things less stiff. Add in some open toed shoes, mirrored sunglasses, and an edgy bag to keep things modern. To bring the outfit into a nighttime feel you can throw on a structured jacket – moto pieces look awesome!
If you’re more adventurous, snag a skirt with a bold print. Florals and gingham are hot choices this season pattern-wise. Also, how cute is the pineapple skirt?
I’m sure the midi craze hasn’t ended for me and will continue throughout summer. Some of my favorite ones (all under $100!) are linked below. Have you jumped on the bandwagon yet?
