The midi skirt, a trend that I thought I would never get on board with, however to my surprise, over the past few months I’ve found them creeping into my everyday style. I’d been very hesitant for a while, ordered a few, which quickly went home, mainly due to the fact that I didn’t think I was tall enough to wear them. I saw these gorgeous models with long legs, looking absolutely amazing in them, and then I just didn’t.
It wasn’t until the start of this year, I started to venture back into the trend, mainly thanks to Abi (@abisblog), who did a mass order of midi skirts and just looked amaze. That was enough to convince me…influencer much! I ordered one and refused to send it back, I decided to stop being paranoid about what other people thought and embrace this new trend (also quite possibly the comfiest trend of the decade). Once I did a lot of trawling through Pinterest, and learning how best to style them, I think I’ve finally started to get there…
Here are a few of the ways I’ve been loving styling them lately…
I think the way which I was most afraid to style a midi was casually, which was frustrating because my style is casual 80% of the time; so I really wanted to master this. Chucking on a pair of trainers and a plain white tee, seemed to do just the trick. Shame it took me so long to establish! I feel like midi skirts are quite a statement piece, meaning that how you style it can be pretty simple and your outfit will still have an impact and catch peoples eyes.
Another casual look which I have been loving, is reaching for a chunky knit jumper and pair of Doc Martens. Probably not appropriate in the summer, but I found myself wearing this outfit a lot in the autumnal months. I love Doc Martens as I think they’re so versatile and easy to style and along with a midi skirt, they’re definitely an addition which makes an outfit that bit more edgy and statement.
Finally, this skirt is the perfect answer for something a bit dressier. Like I said, midi skirts are the easiest way to make a statement with your outfit; when I came across this one on the PLT website, I knew I just had to pick it up. It had my name written all over it and I thought it would be perfect for a more dressier occasion, few and far between they may be. Styled with a plain white tee and my favourite pair of black heels, this is an outfit which makes me feel confident. Pair with a basic clutch and light jacket, you’ve got yourself the prefect spring date night outfit!
