Recently, you’ve probably been seeing fashionable women in flowing midi skirts everywhere and with good reason. The midi skirt has blown up and is an item that is absolutely essential in your spring/summer wardrobe.
If you’re like me, a petite 5ft 2″ individual, you might be wary of this style at first. I know I certainly was. Will it make me look even shorter? Will it give me any shape? Even the thought of looking like an elderly woman crossed my mind but I was seeing Instagram photo after Instagram photo of bloggers rocking their midi skirts and I just couldn’t not buy one and find out if I could pull it off as effortlessly as they could.
Where I got my Midi Skirt
I picked up this gorgeous burnt orange midi skirt with black leopard print detailing up for only £13 from Primark which meant I could give this trend a go without breaking the bank. I’m a huge fan of any garment with button detailing which is another reason why I knew I had to pick this skirt up.
How I Style my Midi Skirt
On first impression, I was incredibly impressed when I tried it on. I was expecting to look wider than I was but the skirt skimmed my hips and flowed perfectly. I felt free, I wasn’t restricted by tight skinny jeans like usual and it was quite a liberating feeling. I knew this would end up being an item I wore often.
I decided to team the skirt with a light beige colour turtle neck jumper because it’s only March and it’s still a little chilly. But, this skirt would also be brilliant for those warmer Spring/Summer days teamed with a t-shirt or crop top. My preferred choice of t-shirt would be a black band tee tucked in or tied at the front to give a more grungy aesthetic. Love.
I completed my look by chucking on my Converse which helps ties the whole look together and blends it in with my style.
Other ways to wear the Midi Skirt
Midi skirts are so versatile which is why I think that everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe. Like me, you can wear your skirt casual with trainers but midis are also great for occasions where you need to be more dressed up. Throw on a pair of heels and a ‘nice top’ with a clutch and you’re ready to go.
Why not even wear your midi to work? Paired with a white, crisp blouse, the flowing nature of the skirt will contrast beautifully with the structured shirt. A winning combination in my eyes! You’ll be the fashion envy of the office.
I have just picked up a pair of the most fabulous black, heeled biker boots and I cannot wait to try on my skirt with them. I know it’s going to look epic.
Where can I get a midi skirt?
As I mentioned Primark is brilliant for those who are unsure about the trend or have less to spend but my favourite skirts at the moment are actually from Topshop. They are skirts in a large variety of prints and colours so there really is a skirt for everyone. I’m currently eyeing up a few and one will definitely be in my basket soon.
