Warmer weather signals the arrival of dresses, skirts and shorter hemlines. But if you want a gorgeous and glamorous look, you can’t go wrong with a midi skirt…
Flirty, feminine fashion is one of the hottest looks this season. And if there’s one piece you need to add to your wardrobe, it’s a fabulous midi skirt. Follow our top tips to nail the look:
Choosing the right option
Not all midi skirts are created equal! In fact, while there are several styles on offer, your best bet is to go for a full, flared 50s style option.
Choosing an a-line midi skirt will flatter your figure perfectly. This is because a-line styles highlight your waist and then skim over your hips, creating the illusion of an hourglass figure and making you look slimmer.
You can opt for a skirt in a neutral hue for maximum outfit options. For a dash of texture, consider a layered option that boasts lace, tulle or mesh. If you prefer a more eye-catching look, consider a bright colour or print instead. The look works well with floral and tropical prints for a quintessential spring look.
Pulling off the look
Since a midi skirt highlights your waistline, it looks best worn with a fitted top. In addition, tucking in your top will help to create a slimmer silhouette and a more streamlined look. Good options include tops that feature v-necks with detailed cap sleeves.
You can accessorise the look with heels for a chic ensemble or opt for pumps for a cuter option. A statement necklace or interesting neckline will enhance your look further. Another option is to select a button down shirt in chambray or denim to give your look another dimension. For best results, keep your top in a single colour or neutral hue.
