STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Happy Midi-um

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Happy Midi-um

The right outfit can make you feel classier than Audrey Hepburn and more confident than Miley without a top. But how do you find a balance that’s not too extravagant for a busy girl on the go. When it comes to happy mediums, a midi-skirt is the perfect way to take “dress well test” to a whole new level without feeling too dolled up for campus.

Modest yet sophisticated, midi-skirts are a great option for interviews, brunch or just dressing up to feel fancier than Iggy Azalea in a diamond covered Audi. By pairing a midi-skirt with heels, you can easily add some length to your legs and create a look that reflects the #BossGirl you are. This Fashionistas look is classy and confident in all the right ways. Emma Roberts better watch out because this outfit screams “there’s a new Chanel in town.” I love the way her ribbed sweater pops against her dark hair and the maroon of her leather midi-skirt. By incorporating different textures like leather, velvet and wool into her ensemble it adds dimension and avoids her look from blending in like a lone bobby pin in a makeup bag. She also uses a splash of sparkle from her curved bar necklace and bracelets to keep this look dazzlingly dynamic, can you say 1-800-HOTLINEBLING? A soft pink Ted Baker bag complements the deep rosy color of her midi-skirt and adds consistency between the warm colors to give this fall look enough color to make Elle Woods jealous. To polish off the look, this Fashionista added velvet pointed mule heels to step up her shoe game; sure to have everyone asking “What are thooose?!”

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “For someone with shorter legs, be sure to choose a skirt that falls slightly above the knees. It will keep you from getting trapped in a sea of fabric.”
