Many women still believe that wearing a midi skirt will age them. Or they find it difficult to wear because of its length, which is neither short nor long. Personally, I find it harder to wear skirts shorter than a midi, mostly because I feel good in a midi skirt and it’s appropriate for any occasion, be it every day or in the evening. I love the fact that it’s reminiscent of the past: I like the 50’s and 60’s fashion, all I have to do is add a bow blouse or a lovely knit piece and I’m ready. If that’s not enough, a midi skirt looks great with a pair of sneakers, which does require a certain height, but if we’re not super short, even sneakers make for a good compromise.
Seeing as how I usually miss femininity in women’s wardrobes, a midi seems like a very good choice. You add some high heels, a narrow belt, and a beautiful top and voila, you achieve a perfect look. Midi skirts have had a strong presence in the last couple of years, summer and winter, which makes it a seasonless piece. It can be cotton or woolen, it always suits the figure, and all the better, if it’s an A-line shape. You can style this model with simple pumps, if they have a high and narrow heel; I would advise against thick or rough look heels and I’m also against medium heels. If you you’re not comfortable with high ones because they make your step uncertain, opt for men’s model shoes, such as brogues with lacing: the contrast can create quite an interesting look.
A wider version of the midi has a narrow waist, which is a big plus, because it will make you seem very slim. Mind the creases and ruffles right beneath the waist line, because those can make you seem wider, so it’s better to have that part tailored smoothly, especially in the case of a pronounced belly. If you love classics, opt for a twin-set, meaning a T-shirt in combination with a cardigan. They’re both shorter pieces, but they always work well, because you can also wear the cardigan individually, which makes it an even more useful piece. Blouses are also a gorgeous combination, make sure they’re soft (such as silk or viscose), because they fall much nicer. If you’re young and slim, opt for a crop top, so that the skirt’s waist is even more emphasized.
There are lots of prints, even in winter time. While it’s true that monochromatic pieces, such as black, grey or beige midi skirts, are a must-have piece in any wardrobe, you can try florals or other patterns for a more playful look. Pastels are also an attractive choice, as is lace, which is more summery, but that’s okay. There’s another advantage to midi skirts: they slim down your hips and thighs , which slims your entire shape optically.
