5 Fashion Bloggers Tell You How To Wear The Midi Skirt
A fashion statement of the ’40s, the midi skirt has recently made a modish comeback. Celebrities such as Sonam Kapoor, Sophie Choudry, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba have been sported wearing this trend and designers such as Dior, Christopher Kane, House of Holland and Temperley London have incorporated the full skirt in their summer 2014 collections. We know it can be a tricky thing to pull off, which is why we’ve enlisted the help of 5 bloggers to help you style your look.
1) Nilu Yuleena, Big Hair Loud Mouth
Crop top and skirt: AJ Store; Heels: Chicnova; Bag: Elle Fashionwear India; Rings and Bracelet: Rings & Tings
Get summer ready in matching separates by flaunting your midriff in a printed crop top and full midi skirt. Opt for either ankle-strap shoes or Mary Janes along with a satchel and neckpiece. Don’t shy away from bold red lipstick during the day like our gal here!
2) Stephanie Timmins, Feisty Fox Diaries
Top: Forever 21; Skirt: River Island; Necklace, Rings, Cuff Bracelet: Feisty Fox Accessories; Sunglasses: C/O Lola’s Closet; Bag: Aldo; Shoes: Zara
Pair your pastel pleated midi skirt with a bold colour cold-shoulder top. A satchel and open-toed heels will look stunning with the skirt. Throw in sunnies for a day out in the sun. Steph here always gets it right!
3) Rati, Makeup and Beauty Blog
Shirt: 431-88; Skirt: ASOS; Shoes: Charles and Keith; Neckpiece: Audrey’s Closet; Clutch: Lulu Guinness
Go classic in a white skirt with floral details and a white buttoned-up shirt. Add some oomph to your look with a bubblegum pink clutch and a statement neckpiece. Take a cue from the gorgeous Rati and let your hair down while keeping your makeup minimal with just a rosy lip colour for a daytime look.
4) SJ, Style Destino
Crop Top: Zara; Midi Skirt: ASOS; Bag: Stella McCartney; Shoes: Steve Madden
Whether you are going for a girl’s day out or on a shopping spree, do it looking fab in a youthful yellow (or any other pop of colour!) midi skirt. Pair it with a neutral top in shades of white, black, beige and grey to sober down the brightness. A sling and high heels won’t hurt, either.
5) Lipsy, Fashion Quotient
Top and Skirt: Choies.com
Go retro like Lipsy by pairing a blue polka dot blouse with a pink ladylike skirt. Step into thong-style strappy sandals to add to the sophistication. An envelope clutch and statement neckpiece will only add to the feminine charm.
