How To Dress: Midi Skirts

Dries Van Noten - Fall 2011

Marc by Marc Jacobs - Fall 2011

Chloe - Fall 2011

I love this fall trend because my mom and sister have a ton of midi skirts circa early 90s - thank goodness I've always decided to keep them in storage and not sell them at my yearly $1 yard sales. But how do you dress linear midi skirts without looking too out dated or like your headed to a corporate meeting? Add a little snakeskin to the look (another fall trend) whether it be pumps or a long buttoned down top. Also tuck it in! - midis aren't only for tall girls, as long as you are wearing great heels and keep the shirt inside, you won't appear shorter but longer! The great thing about midis is that they accentuate the hips and booty - I think its great, it's my best asset ;) Be bold and don't be afraid to mix it up - its been trending for a while snake/stripes, elephant print/stripes, prints/mod inspired midi. The midi isn't a part of the dull 2 piece office look anymore - so what are you waiting for?
