My plan for the next several months is to amass a small collection of statement midi length skirts. These skirts will, hopefully, take the place of the denim that I typically default to. I’m a huge fan of skirts but I haven’t been intentional in refining my skirt collection. I wasn’t really inspired to do so until now.
The “problem” with fuller-length skirts is figuring out how to wear them in a way that’s young, fresh and stylish. Sometimes longer skirts tend to look overly frumpy or outdated. But, if done right, they can become the critical statement piece in a classic, feminine look.
Currently, I’m loving the pairing of a midi length skirt with a tailored crop. The combination of the two pieces creates a wonderful balance of modesty with a hint of sexiness.
Not all crop tops are created equal. Some are designed only to show off a only tiny bit of skin. If you’re not a fan of showing off your navel, feel free to opt for high waisted skirts.
Play around with different variations of this look depending on the event. For instance, I love how she added a cropped jacket as an additional layer elevate the look.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with this a skirt paired with a fitted top. It’s simple to put together and ultra versatile. Play around with the perfect skirt length and top that best fits your individual style.
