Tricky Trend

The midi skirt was a popular length in the 1940s and for the past few seasons, they have been making a comeback. Wearing a skirt at this length is hard to pull off and the silhouette can often look frumpy. How to wear this tricky trend?

  • Wear a top tucked into the skirt, exposing the entire skirt and lengthening the leg line.
  • Balance out the length of the skirt with a high waisted style or use a belt to create shape.
  • Wear shoes that visually extend the leg line; choose a style with a low vamp in a tone that blends with your skin or in a complimentary colour to the skirt.
  • Finally, choose the right length skirt; petite ladies look best in midis that are just over the knee, while taller ladies can wear them longer.
