The Midi Skirt

New York street style this year has been aflutter with fuller and longer hemlines, with models, fashionistas and bloggers embracing the uber-chic, trans-seasonal midi skirt.

This versatile, 1950s inspired piece, is flattering on every body type, making it an essential in any gal’s wardrobe.

I love that there are so many ways to style a midi skirt. This winter I’ll be wearing mine with fitted jumpers, blazers and of course, a killer pair of heels.

Here’s how you can style this classy, sexy look.

Full Skirt

For an elegant and fun look, pair a beautiful full midi skirt with a fitted top and pumps or strappy sandals. I love full skirts in bright colours with quirky accessories for a cute daytime look.

Fitted Skirt

The fitted midi skirt is great for a smart office look when paired with a cute blouse and heels. Switch to a sheer blouse or crop top for after work drinks. This is definitely one of my faves!

Peplum Skirt

This skirt spices up any outfit with its girly frills. Wear with a fitted top to balance out your bottom half and heels to elongate your legs.

To master the midi skirt, adopt the simple mantra of fitted up top with volume on the bottom or vice versa, and make sure to elongate your silhouette with the perfect pair of killer pumps or strappy sandals.
