Well, we are coming up on the end of the year–nay, the end of the decade! Can you even believe it? So, let’s round out this decade with a tribute to the midi skirt. The midi skirt reminds me of blogging in general–it’s really come up in the world and has long been a hit with the internet personas, such as myself. I thought it would be fitting to round out the year and decade with a #shopyourclosetseries featuring a midi skirt. I wear them a lot; you all seem to like them, as well.
I took three midis that I’m particularly fond of right now and styled them two ways. I wear them with blouses, boots, big coats, little sweaters and everything in between. And I want to tell you about my favorite midi skirt tricks:
- If you have a slim fitting, thin sweater, you can tuck it in to your midi skirts! I love tucking all shirts in, but that’s my trick to fully tucking my sweaters in. (See pink skirt with black sweater below)
- If my sweater is too chunky or thick, I do a front-fold or a half tuck. See the fair isle sweater with the metallic midi? That’s a fold-under trick where I fold the sweater under at the skirt and slightly tuck the tip of the sweater into the front of the skirt (#justthetip). The sweater is too thick to tuck in so I just fold it under in the front.
- Midi skirts go with literally any shoe–knee high boots, sock booties, ballet flats, heels–take your pick!
