It seems like midi is the new mini in the new cold season, coming to accentuate elegance and femininity in your looks, at the same time keeping you warmer and cozier than minis could. Coming in a variety of shapes, shades and textures, midi skirts can be easily adjusted to your own personal style and mood this season, if you follow your inner fashion stylist’s creative suggestions and bring them to life. Moreover, midi skirts are also quite versatile in terms of the places you can sport them to, being ideal options to wear to the office, to some classy parties or to the street. How can one not love wearing the new fall 2014 midi skirt trend after all this?
Looking back to the origin of this new charming fall trend, we should remember the breathtakingly colorful and simplistic pleated design suggested by Victoria Beckham, or the flowy and delicate cream midi skirt that Chloe suggested wearing with an oversized and slightly elongated sweater in the same shade. While Max Mara presented a more party-ready glittery alternative of the traditional tube skirt, Vivienne Tam decided to experiment with textures and fabrics, presenting the elegant and ladylike below-the-knee brown leather skirt, which will fit in with the current fall mood just ideally. Some other stylish options of the classic midi skirt were spotted during the fall 2014 fashion shows of Prabal Gurung, where we witnessed an innovative wrap midi skirt style splashed with artistic patterns, as well as of Bottega Veneta, where graphic geometric motifs came to add interest to the modest designs.
Making the fashion giants’ creative midi skirt designs as sources of inspiration, current high street fashion retailers offer a myriad of interesting styles of this classic piece of clothing, letting everyone embrace the new trend this season. Surely, darker colors and heavier fabrics triumph in fall, however, you can also find brightly colored and printed options ready to add life to your gloomy wardrobes. If you still think no other skirt style can compete with minis, check out these six reasons that you need to get a midi skirt this fall right now!
Knitted midi skirts in the iconic mustard color, which is so much into fall, are some of the trendy options you can consider. Wear it with some slim black turtleneck and finish off the look with a pair of classy ankle-length booties and a tiny bag and you are ready to conquer the streets with your gorgeous style! In order not to look too bulky, avoid too roomy tops for such pieces.
Fans of eye-popping patterns and personality-stating images will especially love the look featuring a zig-zag patterned straight midi skirt and a sweater in the same style. A pair of heels can make this look so ideal for special occasions or days at the office.
To add a summer touch to your fall looks, you can go for delicate pastel shades, like it is in case of the powdery lilac sweater matched with the flower printed midi skirt and a pair of pastel heels with some bow details at the front. This look is all about femininity and cuteness!
Midis can also be stunning options for party nights. You simply need to go for the correct shades and textures. Think all glittery things, like we can see in case of the stunning sequined green midi skirt matched with a simple printed tee, a classic black coat and a tiny glittery cross-body bag for the ultimate glam and chic. So many styles collide in the look, looking so harmonious and cool together!
To build up perfect street style looks with midi skirts, think some simpler tops, like a printed tee or t-shirt. As for the footwear, go for flat options only, which will make your outfit appear comfy and cool. Thus, if you go for a plaid midi skirt and wear it with a Mickey Mouse printed tee topped with a black leather jacket and accessorize your look with a pair of biker booties and a classic black leather bag, you can be sure that you can hardly go by unnoticed!
Flared midi skirts are ideal for radiating extra playfulness and femininity. Monochrome or colored, such options look amazing with simpler and slimmer tops, some heeled shoes and minimalist clutches.
Fall 2014 proves to be extremely chic and beautiful in terms of trends, and the midi skirt is just another stylish garment you can experiment with this season, even if it’s the first time you go for it. So try to be innovative and cool, becoming the real trendsetter among your friends and peers!
