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.

Emma Watson for Net-a-Porter The Edit Issue

Emma Watson poses for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit . The 23 year old star poses in five gorgeous dresses made by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Roland Mouret looking  absolutely amazing in these chic alternatives.
 

Since her visit to a factory in Bangladesh  she has been  questioning the current state of affairs: “I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

I live in India , Bangladesh’s neighboring country where there are factories with similar working condition as in Bangladesh. Some indian retailer’s even export from bangladesh because of their high productivity.

“It’s hard to talk about this stuff without sounding preachy.”

The printed dress is truly great ….

Cover up with polka dot stockings for a retro vibe ..

This is easy to wear and super comfortable ……

The unique hemline does it all and don’t forget the bag .

Black stocking paired with this unique print dress is chic. The cut ans style of the dress is unique and interesting.

Go for a tie and dye dress and pair it with statement necklace to complete the look.Chunky bangles and bags to complement it if you will.

A simple dress like this has go it’s own charm. The color is unique and the style is unusual. Upper half is sweater and the lower part a full skirt with defined waist. A simple and comfortable look.

If you not comfortable with shorter hemline go a bit longer.This length is flattering on almost every one and provides enough coverage for cold weather. The dress is successfully paired with black long coat and ankle boots and a head piece.

Play with different types of hemline not only in length but also in form.The handkerchief hem is style.

The unique hemline and the red and black patches in the otherwise simple polka dot dress  is trendy . The red belts adds to its charm.

Simple tie and die dress looks great and comfortable for long summer days. Paired with gladiator sandals  and long neck lace.

you can also go for printed pants  like the criss-cross pink and blue stripes on black background .Pair them with solid colored top or you can even play with prints.

I simple love this outfit the bold black and white vertical striped trouser and the mint green shrug paired with a simple black top look simple and fuss free.

The cut of the coat is cool and the layering does not look bulky at all. Layering is a art that girls in cold weather must graduate in.

Hats of to the one’s who can wear this pair of pant and be comfortable in it all day round . Personally I do not recommend sun extreme fashion that is uncomfortable. But this outfit is a hub of texture. Texture play a very important role in monochrome outfit.

Mustard yellow have been ruling the run for few seasons and the colour is sober and bold at the same time.Office appropriate and with a white top you can never go wrong.

The monochrome outfit is smart and not slouchy.The break in the colour comes where the belt and the funky shoes are added . The bold red lips add a touch of freshness.

Liquid leggings someone.. I love the way she has matched the bag and shoes while keeping rest of the outfit in neutral tone.

Another great example of layering without bulking up.

Double dose of leather is so cool and trendy way to stay warm. Leather is great alternative for jeans and gives edgy vibe as well

The dressy hot pant is not every ones cup of tea but the polka dot stockings and white button down make is work appropriate. This a great piece for your wardrobe as the shorts can double as evening wear when paired with dressy tops.

The office outfit is very simple but lovely. The moccasins and scarf are  good add on. The off white colour pant suit is simply chic.

The floral pant suit is comfortable options …..for a lazy day .We all go through a lazy day now and then so this it is good to have some ready made laid back outfit in the closet.

Days Without Jeans ………. part 1

I love denim and can’t think of going without them for even a week …  but these outfit are really inspiring me to take up the challenge of going 7 days without denim.

Leading the way is Alexa Chung with a floral printed skirt ….

Monochrome skirts are great options if you not sure about prints …… bold Chery red , neutral gray  , brown ……. and this reminds me of me school uniform …

You can even use belts to accentuate your waist ………….

Though the skirt is feminine the  bold chain accessories complement’s it the perfect way ……… I just love it ..

It’s definitely hard to carry of sequin during the day … but where there is a will there’s always a way …..it works great with understated or faded pieces.

The Classic white Shirt and a bold large print full skirt  …….

You can even opt for full skirt if you not comfortable with showing too much skin and don’t forget about the tights. Metallics works great with neutral and white T-shirt will never fail you.
