Move into Midis!

By Wei Ni (Guest Blogger)

Midi skirts are all the rage right now! What was popular back in the 1940s is now a must have item in every fashionista's closet!

The midi skirt first came about in the 40s, where the fashion decade was well known for it's elegance. And it is because of its elegance that the midi skirt is now a big hit amongst celebrities and fashion bloggers. We believe that regardless of your age, you are sure to find a midi skirt that will look good on you at any time of your life!

Below we've sorted the midi skirts into Flares & Fitted. They're both equally stunning but each has their own look, feel & charm. :)

First up, Flares!
The flared midi skirt is reminiscent of the 40s, with it's cinched in waist, light pleats and full skirt. Back in the days, they were often paired up with conservative blouses & kitten heels. These days, how you style up your flared midi skirt is very much up to your own creativity & individuality.
The midi skirt looks especially great when paired with a fitted crop top (another must have piece!). The crop top sit comfortably right above the navel, while the midi skirt sits right on the navel, giving you a hint of skin without showing off too much.
For a more preppy or even office friendly look, pair up your flared midi skirt with a sleek button down blouse. We particularly love the sweater over button down blouse combination, it's sleek & chic and totally office appropriate. Pair it with kitten heels & you're set!  

Following up with Fitted! 
The fitted midi skirts adds a more streamlined & clean look to your style. If you're one for clean lines, the fitted midi skirt might be the one for you. These come in a myriad of styles & cuts, with slits or without, in glitzy glitter or nautical stripes, some with a flirty drop hem/low peplum.
A pair of fitted midi skirt will sit at the smallest part of your waist & hug your curves all the way down to your knees, making this a truly figure flattering item to have in your wardrobe. Because of their midi lengths, by pairing them with heels they add height & length to your body, giving you a taller look.
When pairing up the fitted midi skirt, feel free to go a little bulkier at the top with an oversized top or jacket, this adds a bit of volume & interest to your outfit. Pairing the more formal fitted midi skirts with a casual statement tee lends a relaxed appeal to your entire look.
