I had to wear a midi length dress for a wedding once when I was in middle school. Let’s just say I was not a fan. I thought my proportions looked awkward, and I felt weird. Looking back, that was not because of the dress; it was because I was a weird girl in middle school.
The midi length skirts and dresses have reappeared on the fashion scene as of late, and I was so nervous about trying it out. Firstly, fuller, good quality midi skirts do not come that cheap. I did not want to buy one and then think I look short in it and then never wear it. So, I let the trend ride a little bit before I took the plunge this past week after seeing the Rebecca Taylor 2014 pre-fall collection.
The Rebecca Taylor collection had a beautiful mix of midi length skirts and dresses that were all styled differently, but still worked together in one fluid collection. Looks four and 15 inspired my outfit the most. My yellow, full midi skirt is from the sale rack (score!) at Zara. The fuller silhouette and the pockets reminded me of the skirt in look four. Then the simplicity of my white T-shirt and pop of color with my kate spade bag was inspired by the all-white look and then pop of green shoes in look 15. My accessories including my shoes, necklace and bangles are all neutral.
Honestly, this midi skirt has become my favorite piece in my entire wardrobe. The obsession is real. True to Rebecca Taylor’s goal for her 2014 pre-fall collection, I feel feminine, modern and classic at the same time when I wear my midi skirt.
