Trend Edit – The Midi Skirt
A flattering and ladylike style that is seeing a fashion moment on the current runways; the midi skirt looks set to stay. Here at StyleClone we show you how to make this style work for you.
The midi can look either very smart and proper or edgy and youthful depending on how it is styled as well as the design of the skirt itself. You can opt for full skirt with plenty of ‘swish’ inspired by the 1950’s, simple A-line styles, pleated or pencil straight and hugging your curves.
At Clements Ribeiro, the stand out for me was this tight red lace number, which could look sexy and slinky, but styled with a clashing jumper and ankle boots looks quirky cool. Michael van der Ham made use of a floral pattern in a gorgeous rustic tone for this swishy style. Prada used red leather for maximum impact, showing that playing around with fabric choices can break the conventions of a style. At Rochas, full and flirty vintage style skirts stole the show, and finally at Balenciaga, sexy monochrome chic was the way to go, with minimum fuss styling looks very directional.
Our take on the midi style:
These two different takes on the midi skirt style are easy for anyone to try out the trend. The pattern on the skirts makes them the statement piece, while keeping the tops simple and slouchy and adding detail with chunky jewellery. In particular, the tartan skirt and peep-toe shoe boots are very on trend.
Or, if you want to make a bit more of a statement with your midi skirt, go for an bastract pattern with bustier top and glitter heels for a different take on evening glamour. Or, strut your stuff in a full skirt which oozes ladylike glamour, but have a bit more fun with the rest of the look with a pink bag and printed blouse. A simple gold chain is the finishing touch.
