Summer has always presented a struggle for Fashionistas when it comes to our wardrobes: the daily choice between mini or maxi. However, the classic midi skirt has come back into style for 2016 to save us from our indecision! Midi skirts allow any Fashionista to sport a classy and stylish look while maintaining the ease and security of wearing a breezy and light skirt. The length between mini and maxi is perfect for summer if you don’t want the added concern of adjusting a mini skirt every few minutes and you’re tired of getting your ankles wrapped around in flowy maxi skirts.
Midi skirts can appear daunting to center an outfit around, but this Fashionista shows an easy way to match a bold skirt with a simple outfit by pairing a textured mustard-coloured midi skirt with a basic black mock neck. By keeping the rest of the outfit understated, she effortlessly adds sophistication that transforms the outfit from cute and summery to a classy look to rock at any outing. By adding a solid coloured top to a patterned or textured midi skirt, you draw the eye towards the centerpiece of the outfit, allowing you to go wild when choosing the perfect skirt to wear! Throw on some strappy sandals and some matching jewelry and you have the perfect outfit to wear casually on a summer’s day outing, or even more professionally to work or to an art gallery.
