Style guru SJ thinks the midi skirt is a very flattering option for hips and curves.
Forget the mini skirt, it’s all about the midi now. Sitting at the waist and falling just under the knee the midi skirt is a very flattering option for hips and curves, and a great way to show off your shape. This trend is here to stay for the foreseeable future and a fantastic option for work which can also be dressed up for evening events.
Here are the top three different ways to wear this trend;
1. Waist not
Firstly, you can opt for a more cropped top and allow the midi skirt to accentuate a small waist. This option could also work well with a peplum style top and a belt around your waist.
2. Long layers
Another way to wear the midi skirt is with longer lightweight tops. Think floaty tops that contrast with the often figure-hugging nature of midi skirts. In terms of proportion, a good length for these tops is hip height to create a nice slimming line.
3. Dress it down
To make the midi work in a more casual way style it with a singlet or tee tucked in and throw an open shirt or cropped denim jacket over the top.
Footwear: Given the longer length the midi has the tendency to make calves look short and stumpy if not worn correctly. For this reason I recommend adding some height with your choice of footwear. High heels, wedges or heeled sandals will all help to lengthen your legs. Also, for this trend it is probably best to steer clear of heavy or chunky footwear such as boots and opt for lighter options that won’t ‘cut you off’ as much.
