Midi Skirts Are Having A Moment

Midi Skirts Are Having A Moment

I tend to love long or short skirts but the truth is, I’m finding mid-length skirts are easier to wear. They cover a multitude of sins (I’m looking at you, aging knees) but will give you lots of options.

This month Cindy and I are thrilled to be joined by our incredibly chic friend Vicki, to talk about skirts. You may remember, I raved about Vicki’s brilliant little book.

Midi skirts flatter all figures and are a great piece to dress up or down. They are a graceful look for many occasions. They look wonderful with heels, flats, and even knee-high boots. As with all dresses, skirts, and crop pants… they are most flattering when they are hemmed to a spot where your leg narrows.

They’re modest yet feminine, without being too girly. Midi skirts are easy to walk in, and comfy to wear. They’re best worn with a shorter or tucked-in top to lengthen the look of your leg and give you a flattering proportion (1/3 – 2/3 ).  A nude or your skin color shoe will help elongate your leg which makes you look taller.

If you don’t like to tuck in your top, try a shorter top or a sweater that stops at your high hip level. Another option is to wear a longer third piece open over the top and skirt.

I ran across this skirt in Nordstrom last week and absolutely loved it! It’s a great addition to my wardrobe for now and into the fall. It comes in several prints but this rose color spotted pattern spoke to me. It has an animal print vibe in a cool tone which as you know, is a favorite for me. It is classy and elegant, but fun and different.

I love the idea of wearing a midi skirt with a simple cotton tee and some easy sandals for now… then styled with knee boots and a cashmere sweater for fall.

Let’s go read what Vicki Archer and Cindy Hattersley have to say about skirts. I love being inspired by other women’s creativity and style, don’t you?
