Trend Report: The Midi Skirt

Banish those mini’s and maxi’s to the back of your wardrobe. This season is all about the midi.

The longer length midi skirt is a huge trend this season and is a really stylish and elegant alternative to the mini skirt.

The only warning is to always wear a midi skirt with heels!! This length, which falls at the calf or below can be quite harsh when worn with flats. I am a huge fan of the midi, from pleated to pencil or even prom style skirts. I just love them. There is something so demure and feminine about a longer length skirt, plus it gives us a whole new look to have fun with for the Spring Summer 2014 season.
