STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Midi Skirts

Maxi, mini and mullet skirts have all had their reign. It’s time for a new skirt to take control and change the rules—the midi skirt. Yet, midi skirts aren’t new skirts. They have been around for years, except they were in hiding, worn only by school teachers and receptionists in the ’90s. Now, the fashion world has revolutionized these mid-length skirts into trendy, comfortable and cute pieces.

These skirts are seen from the runway to street style on everyone from fashion bloggers to college students. Because of their versatility, they can be worn hundreds of different ways. They can transform the edgiest outfit into a girly, romantic look. In fact, they can transform any style of outfits ( such as boho, sophisticated or grunge) into a girly and romantic look. My personal favorite way to wear these skirts is to pair them with something unexpected. For example, take an edgy graphic T-shirt and leather jacket and pair them with a red midi skirt and heels and you’ll be instantly transformed into a present-day Carrie Bradshaw. Another perk about these skirts is their comfort. You can wear them anytime anyplace and look like the Fashionista that you are!

This Fashionista decided to wear her midi skirt channeling a Southern vibe. Her sleek black turtleneck and unique jewelry combined with the flowing skirt give off an alluring and sophisticated vibe. To top off the outfit, she added her cowgirl boots to portray her personality. This look is a perfect way to wear a midi skirt in an unexpected way. It’s perfect for class, for an interview or out to dinner with friends.
