4 WAYS TO WEAR THE MIDI SKIRT
By Maybelle Morgan, 20 October 2017
The awkward weather doesn’t have to result in an awkward wardrobe (or lumpy layering for that matter). In fact, now’s the perfect time to employ the hem-swishing tactics of the midi skirt to add plenty of pretty vibes to your autumn styles, while also switching up your silhouette. See how these four #AsSeenOnMe girls are wearing it their way…
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 bang on the money with her blue and gold tartan asymmetric skirt. The tucked-in citrus logo tee amps up the sunny colour scheme, while the checkerboard skate slip-ons and leather jacket combo give a bit of edge to the potential picnic feels.
If it's somehow slipped your radar, polka dots have made a return for AW17 in a big way – and this blogger uses the monochrome variety to channel some retro cuteness. The high-waisted skirt is paired with a cropped top to play with proportions and layered with a charcoal wool overcoat. Add in velvet brogues and printed ankle socks for an understated but charming cold-weather getup.
It’s true, it’s true... florals never fail to add 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 then pair with a simple graphic tee tied in a knot and cropped. Finish with mega strappy heels, plus a silver clutch for the perfect Saturday night drinks look.
