“A Classy Lady always has two midi skirts, one great sweater and a red lip”
Hello chapped lips, chapped hands and chapped feet…Hello Winter. Today I want to talk about the perfect midi skirts that can be transitioned into classy winter wear. I want to show you where to find and how to wear midi skirts all season long. Okay, so you’re asking, what exactly are midi skirts? Well, read on and you’ll find out!
Midi skirts are also known as mid calf length skirts because they should hit you right at the top of your shin where your leg begins to thin out. Midi skirts should NOT stop at the thickets part of your legs or you will look stocky and anything below the top of the shin will have you looking like you’re going to a tent revival with your 10 kids (LOL). For our taller, thinner girls, any length midi skirt will work perfect for you because you have the legs to pull it off. Most midi skirts come either pleated or with a fuller skirt so keep the top as streamlined as possible. Wear either a form-fitting top or something that’s a little more revealing to counterbalance the conservative bottom.
I loved being able to wear my Forever21 midi skirt with a loose-fitting off-shoulder sweater. It was a warm, comfortable look that I was able to wear to church and then out for brunch with the girls. I tucked one corner into the skirt to make sure you saw my waist. What I love about a good midi skirt, beside the length, is that it’s always high-waisted so it sits at the smallest part of your waist. I was able to transition my midi skirt into a winter look by adding on a knit sweater and a pair of rose-gold metallic booties from Shein. My faux-fur bag also added to the feeling of a crisp cold day. Another way to transition your midi skirts is to pair them with a button down silk or chiffon blouse and then add a moto jacket to finish off the look. The faux leather moto jacket will give a little masculinity and edge to the hyper feminine look underneath, and keep you warm.
So how to you plan on wear your midi skirt this Winter. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this look. There is no right or wrong way to pair your midi skirts because as long as you feel good, you look good. If you recreate this look, tag me in it on Instagram at Oluwafunmifly.
