STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Middle of the Road

February has brought on some of the coldest days to date here in the Midwest, but a true Fashionista knows that you can’t let temperature get in the way of your style! This Fashionista faced the cold weather with a smile on her face in this unique midi skirt and paired it with a stunning emerald green blouse which she tucked in to accentuate her small waist. The gold detail on the neckline of the blouse added a beautiful touch and she finished the look by throwing on some simple gold flats to match!

What first drew my attention to her was the classy ’60s vibe of the midi skirt that went down to her calves at the perfect length. This unique item was a staple back in the day and I am pleasantly surprised to see it popping up on my Pinterest feed lately. This Fashionista is perfectly on trend as she strives to evoke a more conservative style while still keeping it modern. This skirt has a tufted texture to it, which I adore and I love the contrast with the silky top.

So fellow Fashionsta/os, let’s agree to put the mini skirt away for one weekend out on the town to maybe venture out and try a vintage alternative that would be perfect for any upcoming formal event.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I think pairing a simple midi skirt with more stand out accessories, like the sparkly flats, is a perfect way to make a practical piece more flashy and fashionable. Midi skirts are great for dressing up or dressing down, so they can be casual or fancy depending on your taste! They’re especially versatile when transitioning from winter to spring.”
