The Midi Way

Friday, May 16, 2014

It's a fact of life, skirts are a spring staple. The beauty is, there's so many different kinds to choose from (i.e. you'll never get bored). You've got your maxi, your mini, pencil, skater, bubble, high-low, and of course - the easiest and breeziest of all - the midi. 
The midi skirt burst onto the fashion scene with gusto this season, making quite the impact on runways and in the streets. It's becoming increasingly popular for every occasion and it's easy to see why. 
These heels contribute a splash of unexpected yet welcomed color to the ensemble.  
A full-body or pleated midi skirt is the definition of ladylike. They're comfortable and elegant, and long enough that you don't have to worry about your undergarments showing. Win-win for everybody! 
A clear cuff is a luxe accessory for any outfit. 
A bright pattern on the bottom coupled with a graphic tee on top makes for an effortless and laid-back combination without sacrificing any style. 
A midi skirt's hemline hits at the calf (give or take a few inches depending on the style). Longer than a mini skirt and shorter than a maxi, with the midi you get the best of both worlds: comfort and ease while still getting to show off some leg. 
Always say yes to pearls. The more the merrier if you want to make an impact. 

The absolute best thing about midis? They're more comfortable than yoga pants yet way more socially acceptable for a brunch date.

Midi skirts are a beautiful thing. They're versatile, classic, and a foolproof item that instantly polishes up anything you pair them with. When wearing a midi skirt, you know you're looking sharp. 

I styled this bright floral midi with a casual tee and I love how it turned out. These pearls add major glamour while my heels tie everything together with an extra dash of color. 
Now tell me, how do you midi?

  1. I think this is truly perfect! I am so blown away with how adorable this look is! I truly would wear the whole thing in a heartbeat! The skirt is so wonderful in that beautiful print and how could anyone resist that cute dog on a bicycle top! I agree that midi skirts are more comfortable then yoga pants, not to mention way more gorgeous!

  25. You look so Pretty like this :)
    I just adore midi skirt because they have this vintage shape, its comfy, no too sexy and really élégant.
    You have made it become more modern With this TEE shirt, its fun i Never see one wrong like this but i like it.
    I like that Print on the TEE cause its the surréalisme of this greyhound (Perhaps?) on that bike... Just reminds me some illustration i love.

    Take care,
    Love from Paris.
