4 WAYS TO WEAR THE MIDI SKIRT
By Maybelle Morgan, October 20, 2017
Ah, the silk midi. It’s a little bit fancier than your average and adds luxe texture to any outfit, but it’s a fine line to tread before you’re waist-deep in nightie territory. Take notes from this street-style beauty and remember to mash up fabrics and influences for a perfectly balanced look. A sporty graphic sweat grounds a satin dusky rose skirt and fluffy accessories (sliders plus a mini-tote) add some fun texture.
Checks are having a moment right now. And not just any checks, we’re talking old-school heritage print, so this #AsSeenOnMe snapper is right on the money with her blue and gold tartan asymmetric skirt. The tucked-in citrus logo tee amps up the sunny color scheme, but then the checkerboard skate slip-ons and leather jacket give some edge to the potential picnic vibes.
If it's somehow slipped your radar, polka dots have made a return for FW17 and in a big way. This blogger uses the monochrome variety to add some retro cuteness to her weekend looks. The high-waisted skirt is paired with a cropped top to play with proportions and layered over with a charcoal wool overcoat. Velvet brogues and printed ankle socks make for an understated but charming cold weather look.
It’s true, it’s true. Florals never fail to add some insta-pretty to any outfit, and the pattern truly meets its match in the form of the high-waisted calf-skimming skirt. For seasonal appropriateness, keep the blooms big and moody and pair with a simple graphic tee tied in a knot and cropped. Finish with some mega strappy heels, plus a silver clutch for the perfect Saturday night drinks look.
