STYLE GURU STYLE: Meet The Midi Skirt

Everyone let me introduce you to your fashionable secret weapon this fall: the midi skirt or, as some like to call it, the tea skirt. Season after season, midi skirts appear to be a staple item for many Fashionistas. Midi skirts encompass an easy to style feature that allows for all sorts of looks, so it’s safe to say, you can’t go wrong with this skirt.

Featured in Junya Watanabe’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection were variations of the black midi skirt. Multiple looks in the collection contained this staple piece. The collection focused on the dimensionality of clothing. Junya Watanabe’s experimentation with patterns and dimension certainly made his collection stand out amongst the rest.

The best thing about this trending item is that it can be worn so many different ways. Personally, I like to dress up a midi skirt, nothing makes me feel classier than wearing a chic pair of pumps with a flared midi skirt. Pairing these two items together gives your look a pretty yet playful style. I decided to go for a simple black ensemble with just a touch of color. Considering the majority of my wardrobe is black, this was so simple for me, and it allowed me to choose any accent color; so naturally, I chose red. Adding just a little bit of color can really make a statement. On the flip side, midi skirts can easily be worn for an everyday look. Midi skirts can be worn with fitted shirts, loose shirts or even sweaters. Additionally, by pairing a midi skirt with an edgy flat shoe or even a pair of booties, you can transform the look into a fashionable every day outfit. The variety of options with midi skirts is endless.
