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.

4 WAYS TO WEAR THE MIDI SKIRT
By Maybelle Morgan, 20 October 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 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.
