Although most fashionistas have bid a bittersweet goodbye to their thigh-baring mini skirts for this year, wearing feminine skirts throughout winter is completely doable thanks to the most popular style of skirt this season — the “midi” skirt. Think mini skirt, except mid-length!
Unlike mini skirts, midi skirts are appropriate for the office or school, and usually hit mid-calf when worn. The 1940s-inspired skirt has been blowing up the F/W designer runways, producing chic replications in more accessible retail stores.
For winter, pair a high-waisted midi skirt with a slouchy sweater and scarf for multidimensional layers of style and warmth. To accessorize, cinch and accentuate your waist with a braided belt and pile on the necklaces!
When it comes to shoes, ankle booties are the perfect go-to choice for footwear. Try a pair of sleek and svelte black leather platform booties, like Michael Kors’ “Irving” suede bootie.
The perfect places to look for midi skirts include on-trend hot spots like H&M and Forever 21, but don’t forget affordable options like thrift stores. Even designers look to the trends of yesteryear to flesh out their runway looks, so it’s no surprise that midi skirts may be hiding on the racks of thrift stores!Tags: booties, fall, fashion, michael kors, Midi Skirt, runway, Skirt, style, trend, winter
