1 Midi Skirt, 2 Ways

IMG_4624

Welcome to the second edition of me putting on one garment and styling it two ways! The midi skirt has been on trend for the last two years now, and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I have a pencil skirt midi, but have been shopping for the perfect full midi for a while. I bought this one about a month or two ago and have been dying for summer to end so I can start wearing it. Here’s a couple of things to love about a full midi skirt:

1. It comes in at your waist and flares out, big time. This is only beneficial if you like to look like you have a tiny waist and hide anything you aren’t too crazy about below. If that’s something you aren’t going for, then this skirt may not be for you.

2. There are not too many pieces of clothing that can just make you feel like a lady….who should be going to a ball….This could just be me, but that’s how I feel in this skirt.

3. The Spin Test. You know what I mean.

My first inclination with a skirt like this is to wear it with a simple, fitted top. However, in the name of having fun, I decided to style this skirt with a quirky sweatshirt, a dash of leopard, and girly accessories.

One of my neighbors is the lucky owner of this awesome mint colored scooter. I would have one of these too if I wasn’t so afraid of all the really horrific LA drivers running over me. You only get one face, ya know? In any case, it made a great prop for this outfit…my facial expression is due to the fact that I was pretty nervous said owner would come out their back door to see me sitting on their scooter…livin’ on the edge, that’s how I roll! 😉

Now I present look 2: classic, sleek, and modern. A skirt this great doesn’t always need a lot of embellishment, because it can stand on its own and be the focus of your look. I like the crop with this as it shows a little skin to contrast the fullness of the skirt.

By the way, if you are anything like me and are constantly drooling over Aquazzura‘s gorgeous heels but can’t afford them, this pair from Forever 21 is a pretty great alternative. The added bonus is that they are actually pretty comfortable too. Saving about $580 AND not making your feet cry? I’m down.

    I’m in love with these full circular skirts. I already have given my local tailor an order to make them in!

    Ahh I love both ways. I prefer the vintagey look, that pop art sweater and dangling earrings are really 50s inspired, I love it 🙂
