5 Ways to Wear the Midi

Hot off the press!  The mini is out and midi is most definitely in.  Whether you opt for a skirt or dress in this knee skimming beauty, you’ll be strutting out with on-trend style sophistication in a look that gives a very definite nod to the 50’s.  The plain midi can’t help but make you look supremely feminine whatever your shape or size. Whilst a plain block colour (and there’s a spectrum to choose from!) squeals CLASS, pretty prints and bright hues will add a fun and funky addition to your wardrobe.  Keep it simple with a blouse; funk it up with a printed t-shirt or in more stormy weather wear it with a crew neck sweater tucked in at the waist. If you’ve got a washboard tummy to envy then why not show it off with a cool crop top.

A must-have style for the summer season, we show you 5 ways to wear the midi below.

  1. Casual Summer Chic

Midi skirts in dreamy soft fabrics make the perfect style statement for a summer daytime outfit.  Whether you opt for a printed or block colour style, a midi skirt is perfect for keeping cool when temperatures soar.  Wear yours with some embellished sandals, a pastel tote and your favourite sunnies to truly own it.

  1. Perfect Wedding Looks

A midi dress is the ideal look if you want to make an impression whether it’s at a summer wedding or cocktail party. The midi will fall past the knee and sometimes finish at your calf.  Be mindful that the hem doesn’t finish at the widest part of your calf as this can make you feel like they’re bigger than they actually are – its all an illusion!

Add pizzazz and an extra shot of chic to your midi dress by teaming it with this seasons’ metallic accessories, a neutral jacket and our all time favourite and must have neutral shoes to add extra length to your perfect pins.

Our favourite looks include lace styles in feminine colours, which you’ll want to wear again and again.
