The Midi Skirt

It’s #TrendyThursday and this week we’re talking about the midi skirt. Being 5’3, I was never really into midi skirts. I mean, I always admired them on other women but I felt so uncomfortable in them. Damn you short legs!!!

After years of midi skirt lust, a light bulb finally went off in my head. Why not just get the skirt altered? Sure enough, it worked and now I’m obsessed with wearing midi skirts.

I really like to create contrast when I style looks. Since the skirt is pink, pleated, satin, and SCREAMING girly, I decided to pair it with a distressed vintage Pink Floyd Tee to add a little ruggedness to the vibe.

If you’re not into mixing and matching, there are so many other ways to style a midi skirt. Superga’s with a tee shirt tucked in or tied up. A cropped sweater with strappy heels. A sheer bodysuit and denim jacket (see how I pulled that off here).

How do you like to wear a midi skirt? Let me know in the comments below!

 

Unfortunately most of my look is not available to be shopped online (except my fishnets and boots) but I’ve linked similar items:

Midi Skirt: ASOS | Distressed Vintage Tee: Poshmark | Fishnets: Amazon | Booties: ASOS


Unsure what to wear with the midi skirt?
