4 Ways to Wear ~ Midi Skirt


As promised, for this month's edition I'll be showing you 4 options for styling a midi skirt.  I personally love this length & shape of skirt because it has a ladylike vintage feel (which we all know I gravitate towards).  I chose looks that would be perfect for spring & summer, but if the weather is still a bit chilly where you live, you could easily layer a jean jacket, cropped sweater or cardigan on top for some added warmth.  See more photos from this shoot on my Facebook page & be sure to leave a comment below letting me know which one is your favorite!

What I'm wearing:
DKNY blouse (via TJ Maxx), Old Navy skirt (here), Forever 21 belt (similar) & necklace, Target cuff (similar), ASOS clutch, BCBG pumps


What I'm wearing:
LOFT blouse (on sale here), Old Navy skirt (here), Target cuff (similar) & sunnies, The Limited clutch, Mossimo sandals (here)


What I'm wearing:
Old Navy blouse & skirt (here), BCBG sandals, H&M belt (similar), Mudd glasses (on sale here), Jason Wu for Target bag, Target earrings, Bracelets: Vintage & c/o Poshlocket (here)

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 top (similar), Old Navy skirt (here), Target belt, MRKT wedges, Urban Expressions clutch (here), Accessorize necklace, Bracelets: Vintage & Forever 21 (here), Dockers aviators

I wanted to get that skirt but feared the wrinkles. Does it wrinkle terribly?

Crystal @MissCrystalMakeup said...

Love the way you've styled this skirt! It looks so nice you on. Wish I could pull that length off but it makes me look a little short. :)

This skirt really is versatile! Wish I would have picked it up when I saw it at the store. I can't even pick a favorite because I love how you styled it all 4 ways!

All four looks are so pretty and feminine, it's hard to choose a favourite! I love the first outfit, but love the sandals in the third.

Fab styling! You look great in every outfit. Unfortunately, I'm staying away from the midi skirt because I'm 5'2" and that length just doesn't work for me. I do wanna try maxi styles though!

TheUrbanUmbrella said...

Wow, you sure make it hard to choose a favorite...great job!

Alyson said...

love this! what are your thoughts on midi skirts for shorter gals like me? I wear one but wondering sometimes if it's the most flattering length. I often think it's better when I go shorter or longer. Either way, LOVE this especially with the button down and the stripes.

Kimberly said...

Thanks Alyson! I think it is definitely trickier to pull off a midi-length skirt for those who are shorter or petites...but not impossible. You'd have to try it on to be sure it doesn't overwhelm your frame. :)

Amy Shaughnessy said...

These are all great! I love the first look the best...

Yay! My favorite of your segments! 4WTW! I love them all but partial to the second look because I've recently started this obsession with coral :)

Xoxo,

I adore midi lengths, I think they are perfectly elegant, as you show us here. Lots of great suggestions - would you like to come and style me, please?!

All four look great. And that skirt is lovely. Unfortunately, I'm a shorter gal, so skirts that hit me below the knee and above the ankle tend to make me look like i'm 12.
