THE MIDI SKIRT

This season it’s all about the midi skirt. They’re everywhere — in shops, in magazines, and on your favourite celebrities but the real test of any trend is whether us 'regular folk' can actually pull it off.

Autumn's new longer length skirts combine an easy wearability with a cool, clean modern look. I secretly love how the midi skirt demands a more revealing top to balance the demure silhouette and shape. Since the skirt covers up so much leg, pairing it with a form-fitting, skin-baring top makes the most sense.

For those looking to try crop tops, the high-waisted midi is its perfect counterpart. Unless you have model-like height, the midi skirt requires very specific footwear. You absolutely must wear a heeled shoe, no exceptions or excuses. This may sound crazy but trust me, flats are not your friend when wearing this skirt.

This wool midi skirt is from Zara, my Wyatt Sandals are Rag & Bone and the cropped tank is from Aritzia.
