Wear the Trend: Midi Madness
Share This Article:
The high street has seen a wave of feminine flared midi skirts in a wide range of colours and fabrics. This season’s obsession with pleats goes perfectly with the trend. Whether you prefer a wide-set 50s style pleat or a tight fold for a girlie, flirty look, these details makes a big difference to the skirt style. Midi skirts are also the perfect canvas for SS14’s floral trends - wear watercolour prints and bold blooms for a versatile, edgy look or for a more feminine look, a pastel pallet. Bold patterned skirts look great paired with a classic plain top. If floral isn’t your thing, opt for a solid colour midi skirt; this will add more versatility to your wardrobe too. Team with a baggy print t-shirt for a casual look or a sweater for those cooler evenings. Of course, this look harks back to the 1940s and the 1960s, so if you’re worried about looking a bit too retro team your skirt with a modern staple such as a leather jacket, a crop top, a baggy slogan sweatshirt and a pair of high heels (don’t wear flats unless you’re really tall) If you prefer the more fitted, sexy, pencil style midi skirt, don’t fear they are still on trend! Pair a plain one with a slogan tee or a patterned one with a plain one just like with the flared one. A mini trend seems to be emerging within the fitted midi skirts, which is lace and sheer – a seemingly demure below the knee skirt is actually a mini skirt with a sheer overlay, perfect for those not ready to bare their legs just yet!
