A-line, print, pencil, or pleated, it’s hard to not spot a calf-grazing skirt working hard for its money this season. And it’s no wonder the midi has gained so much popularity – waist whittling and silhouette elongating, designers seem to have found the perfect balance between vintage sophistication and modern contemporary. A favorite when it comes to mixing and matching, midis can be combined with a variety of tops, shoes, and accessories to achieve that perfect look.
For an eye-catching, fun look, give an unexpected hue or bold print a try. Chock full of personality, strong patterns or splash of color easily elevates a simple tee or chambray shirt. When summer comes to a close, this statement-making choice will instantly brighten up dreary autumn days.
Varied proportions and shapes offer yet another set of alternative complements. From asymmetrical hemlines to thigh-high slits, a slightly off kilter cut not adds personality to any outfit. While a leg revealing design may seem contradictory to the definition and demureness of a midi skirt, the look is not only ladylike but also cold weather appropriate when paired with tall boots. A crop top in a similar color or pattern is not only stylish but also flattering when the right balance is struck.
Due to its length, midi skirts often draw the eye downward, putting emphasis on our footwear. When it comes to finding the right pair of shoes, statement heels with interesting details go well with figure-hugging designs such as a pencil skirt. The cinched style provides an extra lean feel, further heightened by some added height, which extends the skirt’s long, lean line. Not to be overtaken, flats or athletic kicks pair well with a fuller skirt for a casual day out.
