It’s my favorite time of the year for fashion. Summer is winding down, and we’re being forced to tuck those high-waisted shorts and bandeau tops back into the corners of our closets, or at least pair them with tights, Timberland boots and a varsity jacket. We’re trading our highlighter-yellows and cobalt-blues for earth tones like raspberry and tan; and if you ask me, our complexions have never looked better.
This Fashionista is wearing one of my favorite transition pieces this season, the midi skirt. The high-waisted, A-line silhouette has a classic feel to it. And the calf-length hem helps her avoid catching that cold that’s always circulating through campus around this time. This flowy number also features an abstract print, with baby-blue, forest green and chocolate-colored dots that pair perfectly with her nude, round-toe flats. She has added a tan skinny belt to draw in her natural waist, creating a girly vibe for the look.
Whether leather or chiffon, form-fitting or free-falling or something in between, midi skirts are certainly a must-have item for style savvy schoolgirls everywhere. They are just long enough for the office, just cozy enough for the classroom, and, with some platform pumps and a patterned bralette, can even turn heads at the club. This Fashionista has opted to match up hers with a relaxed navy camisole, a vintage denim vest and simple hoop earrings for the perfect early autumn ensemble.
Rock a semi-sheer, pleated midi to a study date for a bit of flirty flair; or go for a solid one with a crewneck sweater during Parents’ Weekend to remind them that you’re still their little girl. Either way, a midi skirt is a chic way to flaunt your femininity while still leaving something to the imagination this fall.
