musthave monday: midi skirts

The Midi

The Midi by missioncloset featuring a knit skirt

My love of the maxi for spring is no secret and I plan on wearing them all season long. But I'm also really liking skirts that are a tad shorter and hit right around the calf, often called a Midi. I appreciate the 60s, Madmen feel of this very feminine silhouette.  Flowy materials and pencil skirts both work well. Micki Turner gave a great tip for wearing longer skirts, "To avoid looking dowdy keep part of the outfit tight or the shoe very cool and fun."

  5. Great outfits. I love the way the colors go together but are not all matched. This also makes the outfit look fresh and modern. Think mix and match rather than all too matched.
