Why The Midi Is My New BFF
At the drop of a hat I’ll choose jeans to wear, over anything else. This winter, however, after purchasing a leopard midi skirt, everything has changed.
Could this actually be the year (at the age of 49) that I begin the much-anticipated transformation into looking more ladylike? Who knows. I just know that this skirt is the easiest, most wearable, comfiest item in my wardrobe and it’s on rotation.
I do love a little leo (grrr), but let’s put the pattern aside for a minute. I can wear this skirt with nearly everything I own and when it comes to matching it with outer wear I’ve been wearing mine with knee high boots and ankle boots, in different colours and materials (it was styled with silver glitter on Boxing Day) and I don’t doubt that I will likely chuck it on with trainers come spring.
The midi skirt cut is most flattering as it falls on the slimmest part of the leg, your ankle, thereby helping to achieve an overall slimmer leg effect (loving and needing this right now), but also as most midis are A-line or full, the skirt nips in at the waist and then glides over the hips. Seriously, you can hide a roast dinner.
It looks just as lovely with a big winter coat…
…..as it will do with a leather biker in the spring
As you can see I’m wearing mine with a roll neck right now, but I plan to extend its wear when the weather changes, adding shirts and T.shirts.
This skirt is still available in Zara and I’ve taken the liberty of searching out a few more ideas here. I absolutely adore the Marks and Spencer check options and the two green skirts in Mango. To die for.
Take a look. I shall be trying some of these on to add to the collection.
Have a great weekend.
