Midi Skirts… I do not understand them. They remind me of the fifties where woman (without any sarcasm ofcourse) happily polish their silverwear, cook food for the family and give their husband a dried martini after his long working hours. A time that guys nowadays still like to joke about (please choke on that olive).
And why wear a skirt that covers so much leg? I rather prefer the mini skirt or go all the way and go for the maxi one.
My feelings about the midi skirt are obvious. That’s why I decided to do some midi skirt surfing and find some examples that might change my mind… a bit.
After beeing let down by brands I had high hopes for I hit the jackpot on the first page of Newlook!
LEFT (New Look) : Yes I could see myself wearing this in combination with a white/black/blue/red/pinkish top. Damn, I might just buy this. | LINK |
RIGHT (Dezzal): Another skirt that caugt my eye on Dezzal. I love this sandy/ocher color. With the classical lining I want to combine it with an eighties rock shirt for that edgy twist. | LINK |
LEFT (River Island): I nice solution to show a little bit more leg, although I wonder if there is a stitch in the middle where the fabric meet eachother, otherwise it might show just too much. | LINK |
RIGHT (Asos): loving the cute button solution, but the “stylist” part in me wants to combines it with moto boots and a leather jacket. | LINK |
LEFT (free people): Free people, a website where I love to drown in pretty boho images and gorgeous designs.. untill I see the pricetag and sadly move on. | LINK |
RIGHT (Mango): I can’t resist metallic colors. I absolutely love this one. A black top is a safe solution, but I think yellow will also look gorgeous. | LINK |
Conclusion: I have some mixed feelings about midi skirts now. I had to dive deep into the ocean of skirts which appear in all sorts shapes, patterns and sizes. I believe you can seriously rock one and I have to admit, midi skirts are more practical than it’s smaller mini skirt sister. As long as they are flared I might just give it a go. Besides, my boyfriend doesn’t drink martini and hates olives.
