Have you noticed that skirt lengths are slowly shifting? Over the last few seasons, there’s been a gradual increase in the number of longer, ladylike hemlines. This new length is a great solution for gals wanting more leg coverage, or for anyone looking for a modern change. It’s a trend worth exploring.
There seem to be two versions of the midi: 1) soft and ladylike with a fuller over the knee or midi skirt length and 2) slinky and seductive in a slim, pencil-style midi. Which version are you? Here’s a look at the two.
Be a Lady Who Lunches
Voluminous over the knee and tea length skirts have a very feminine, country club feel. One way to play this up is to wear a skirt like this with a ladylike bow tie blouse in a floral print. Tucking in your blouse and adding a belt at your waist will enhance an hourglass silhouette and highlight the fit ‘n’ flare detail of the skirt.
Try a Slim, Sexy Silhouette
If a full midi skirt makes you feel like a Stepford wife, try one of the slim, pencil style midi dresses instead. They are subtly sexy and can go from office to date night with ease! This cozy midi sweaterdress is sporty and sophisticated.
A Little Edginess is Modern
Another way to look modern in a midi and not 1950’s is to choose a midi dress with an edge. This dress with its sexy cutouts at the neckline looks totally current and chic.
Whether You Choose lady like or sexy remember:
Heels are non-negotiable with a midi. This doesn’t mean you need to bust out the stilettos, but a shoe with a bit of lift will stop you from looking frumpy.
Will you be wearing the midi? Or do you think long skirts make women look old after a certain age? I’d like to know.
