Inspiration Board: Styling a Midi Skirt

Yesterday I posted a midi skirt and I realized that 99% of women probably find the whole concept way daunting! I mean, a skirt that cuts you off in the calf region is not naturally flattering. But you don't need legs for days to rock the look, there are just a few things you need to consider!

Inspiration Board: Midi Skirts
  • Find a skirt that hits just below the knee. The higher on the calf it falls, the better!
  • Wear heels! Nude platform pumps without too many straps and whatnot. Remember that straps will cut you off more and you want to elongate your legs!
  • Wear a form fitting top tucked in. You don't need skin tight, but you should try to emphasize you shape, particularly that you have a waist. So throw a belt on for good measure.
Please note my tips are not requirements, just advice to provide yourself with the most flattering look possible. Feel free to do all or go to the opposite extreme by pairing the skirt with a poncho, oxfords and socks!
