How do I wear Midi skirt ?

ACCORDING TO DESIGNER CHESTER WEINBERG, WHO MADE THE MIDI HIS SIGNATURE, THE MIDI WAS “ALMOST AS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE WOMEN’S MOMENT. IT’S FOR THOSE WHO DON’T PARTICULARLY CARE ABOUT WHAT MEN THINK ABOUT THE WAY THEY DRESS.”

The midi skirt was the beginning of a fashion evolution, that was evident in the rising hem lines in 1900. Love it or hate it, the midi is a classic piece that deserve it’s won chapter in the books of fashion evolution. 

When the midi first appeared it caused quite an uproar and lead to political and aesthetic revolution in womenswear. The midi skirt is a tricky silhouette to pull off. While it can be very flattering if paired with the right shoes and hem line, it can be a disaster if the length of the skirt doesn’t hit the right place bellow your knee.

 

This fashion trend favours tall and slim silhouette. The degree of difficulty  for this trend is pretty high so you will get a lot of fashion point to pull this one off.The lady like midi is now more sophisticated, streetwise , in tweeds and tartans. 

 There is a reason the midi skirt keeps bouncing back in fashion, it has been all over the catwalk for several season. The skirt is office appropriate and  flattering for all ages. They come in several print and material from edgy to floral and from casual boho to office appropriate pencil skirt. 

Split midi skirt are perfect office wear. The floral one looks great and can add some colour and life to the boring office wear.

Though it is better to opt for heels to pair with midi, they look dashing with ballet flats too.

The skirt that never goes out of style  makes for great two piece. These are easy to pull off. The midriff barring trend is modern and sleek. The midi paired with cropped top gives a casual vibe.

For the daring and the brave asymmetrical hem and geometrical prints. Another playful twist to the classic midi with asymmetrical hem lines and shear panel.

 The midi mostly regarded as formal skirt can be flirty and fun. In dark colour and myriads of prints the midi is for all occasion.

Jewel-toned satins midi paired with tall boots and turtlenecks, perhaps with a sliver of skin showing at the waist would get the temperatures high in winter.

 They are appropriate for winters too. I love the voluminous skirts paired with knits and plums. Yes, midi is definitely of those trend that you can wear all through the year in every season.
