So excited to be sharing a How to Style reader request today!
After the last feature, I mentioned how much I love helping people figure out how to get the most out of their challenging wardrobe pieces and my friend Genny asked if I’d be interested in helping her learn some great new ways to wear her darling green midi-skirt. SO, let’s get right to it!
One of the things that I like to remember when styling up this silhouette is that because of the full shape and high waist, it helps to keep the top part of the look a little more fitted. As you can see from the options I chose above, none of them cross over into the tight category (although I would totally rock this same skirt with a sporty cotton ribbed tank and some flat ankle booties), but instead they drape nicely over the form.
For the finishing touches, I’d add a neutral handbag (obsessed with this two-toned clutch) and big stacks of bangles on both wrists for added interest. I must also mention that since the fall season is rapidly approaching, a cheeky cropped sweater would also make a great stand-in when the weather gets cooler, and of course my go-to transitional leather jackets could be worn over the tops of all three looks, as well.
Have you guys tried out the midi-skirt trend for yourself? Which one of the above looks is your favorite?
