3 Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt

In case you hadn’t noticed, midi skirts are set to be everywhere this summer. So last weekend, when we actually had some nice weather, I dug out my fail-safe black lace midi and styled it three different ways for a bit of inspiration. Because I’m kind like that.

None of these looks are drastic, just regular ways that I’ll be rocking my midi this summer.

With a Colourful Tee…


I have to start by saying this is my go-to tee in the summer. It’s a classic Olivia Rubin brick print which I feel like I’ve had forever but still goes with everything. Obviously where there’s a bright pink tee there should of course be a bright pink lip too.

I find this skirt is actually a little big on me around the waist, so to disguise the gape and to make it appear more flattering, I tuck my tops in and highlight with my favourite chain belt.

Skirt, ASOS
Tee, Olivia Rubin Brick Print
Belt, ASOS
Boots, River Island
Necklace, Whistles
Leather cuff, Whistles
Watch, Michael Kors

With a Jumper…


First off, I just have to give credit to Al, who after taking a couple of pics, walked over and tucked the right side of my jumper into the belt. He then took a few steps back, gave a satisfied nod and started taking pictures again. Essentially he styled me.

And I love it. I often like to wear a chunky jumper with a skirt, channelling my inner Carrie Bradshaw. Do be aware that it isn’t always the most figure-flattering look, which is why I’ve belted over the skirt and jumper here. It’s important to highlight that you do have some sort of waist hiding under all the material.

 With a White Shirt…

I’d like to think of this as my most grown-up look of the bunch. I mean how could you ever go wrong with a shirt. Especially a sheer one with shoulder cut outs. I like how it’s not fitted and slight puffs around the belted waist.

As for the shoes, these are my trusted strapped wedges which go with anything and can be worn all night. Always a bonus.

What I’m Wearing:
Skirt, ASOS
Shirt, Mum’s wardrobe
Vest, Primark

Shoes, River Island
Necklaces, Forever 21
Leather cuff, Whistles
