Full Midi Love Affair
by Kéla Walker
I’m having quite the love affair with these old school 50’s style full midi skirts that are making a modern day comeback in fashion this season…
You know, I prolong wearing tights for as long as possible. If I even think I can bear the weather I’m baring leg. Such was the case when I wore this skirt. Sure, the extra length provided more coverage than you average skirt but more than that I love the big circle style of full midi skirts. They remind me of the ladies of the 50’s with their prim and proper lady like style. LOVE IT!!! I tend to fall in love with full midi skirt I see and am pretty happy that they are becoming increasing available. To keep the look fresh and prevent my 5’5′ frame from looking squatty I follow a couple of steps to update the style.
1. Always wear heels to prevent looking like an old maid and to lengthen the appearance of your legs in the skirt
2. Pair you full midi skirt with a cool items like a leather jacket or sweatshirt or in this case a moto jacket and fun hat.
3. Watch your proportions. Avoid big boxy tops that will overpower you and aim for fitting, tapered tops in order to let the skirt bloom in full
Those simple steps give the the vintage / old school style modern day appeal. Needless to say, you will be seeing lots of full midi skirts coming from the kloset.
