Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn Monroe. Grandma’s closet. Mad Men. The Mid-Length skirt dates back to 1950s glamour so who would be thinking of wearing it now right? Funny story Dolls, I went shopping with my mum and she picked up a pleated black Mid-Length skirt and a white classic skirt. I wasn’t too convinced until I tried it on and ended up nicking it (She still thinks it’s in her closet! LOL)
Knee-length or floaty fabrics, these skirts are über feminine and ooze sophistication. With Louis Vuitton and Chanel showcasing the trend in their runway shows, celebrities for one have gone literally mad for it. Cary Mulligan, Alexa Chung, Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson- just to name a few, have been snapped in a Mid-Length skirt.
Steer clear of wearing your skirt with a busy shirt i.e a pussy lady-like blouse. Make sure you keep the top half simple for an overall clean look! The best place to shop this style is at a vintage store. For a modern twist of the Midi, check out Mango and Zara. According to Louis Vuitton, your Midi isn’t complete without a pointy-toed kitten heel and a passé style hand-bag! Be sure to team minimalist accessories with this retro outfit.
Another trend appropriate for all ages! Boy I’m loving this year’s Winter Fashion. It’s packed with versatility and easy go-to look, you couldn’t help but get excited about. Are You or Aren’t You?
