Shapes of SS14: The Midi Skirt
April 9, 2014
Midi is THE length to wear this season, so make the most of this ladylike look.
To get it right you need a style that suits your body shape, height and scale. The key to success here is to ensure the hem of your skirt stops at the narrowest point of your leg. You need to aim at getting the balance of your look right.
Try on your midi skirt with flats (for a more relaxed look) or heels (from kitten up) for a more sophisticated look. Bare legs give this length an update, tights can make it look outdated unless you go ultra-sheer.
Showing your ankles is the look this season!
Full midi skirts accentuate the waist and can look amazing but they can look too voluminous for petite ladies and add pounds to fuller figures. The same goes for big pleats.
Softer pleats will hang perfectly over the hips of neat and full hourglass figures.
Pencil skirts in a good quality and soft or stretchy fabric can be very versatile and can be worn by all body shapes (make sure you wear the right top to flatter your shape in the skirt).
The structured pencil is best on inverted triangles, rectangles and neat hourglass figures.
A-line styles will add width to the hips so avoid if you are wider in this area.
