Midi on My Mind

Midi Skirts

{Click on each item for product link}

 

Standing at a shrimpy 5’2″, I never thought that I could ever wear a midi skirt.  Well, that is, until I finally tried one on that was actually flattering on my figure.  A few weeks ago I purchased two gorgeous pink midi skirts, and now I can’t seem to get midi skirts off of my mind.  One is a pretty pale pink from Topshop, the other is a frilly and vibrant pink from ASOS.  Unfortunately, both have since sold out online, but there are so many more beautiful options available right now.  These are a few skirts that I have my eye on. Are you a fan of the midi?

    HUGE fan of the Midi skirt. I’m loving that lime green/yellow one.

      I’m drawn back to that lime green/yellow skirt almost every day. 🙂 I think I might just buy it! 🙂

    I only stand at 5’3″ so I completely understand your pain. That being said I have been wearing 2 midi skirts of my own. They are both pleated (one blue with thin black vertical stripes and the other it hot pink) I am in love.

      Oohh, those sound so pretty! I think a pleated on is next on my list but I haven’t tried one on yet that hasn’t accentuated my hips in a not-so-good way. I’m still on the hunt! 🙂

    I always love these on other people, but they never seem to look good on me. I’m 5’3″ and I have a very curvy body.

      That’s exactly what I thought too until I found one that fit me well! I’m curvy too and generally find that the fuller styles look much better on me than the slim, pencil cuts. Good luck with your search!

    I would never have imagined your height to be 5.2! You certainly know how to dress “tall” by styling outfits and wearing clothes that elongate the body. Even if you do look shorter than you are, you still look fabulous in every outfit, I admire your style. I am 1.78 m tall and try to look shorter by wearing prints that doesn’t make me look taller! :):)

      Aww, that’s the nicest thing to hear…EVER! 🙂 Haha, thanks so much Nicolene! I would LOVE to be your height! At only 1.58m, I feel so short sometimes. My Dad is 6′ (1.83m) but my Mom is only 5′ (1.52m) so I definitely got my Mom’s genes on that one. 🙂

      Thanks Anesha! Yes, you definitely can’t beat the price at ASOS either! 🙂

    The coral skirt I wore to the stella and dot thing is the midi one from asos, but I shortened as it didn’t look good on me on full length 😉 I think that the length that looks best on me is right on the knees and nothing below 😉

    • Jenny
      August 2, 2013

      Really!? I didn’t realize! I really liked the length you had it at too!

    I don’t think i’ve tried on a midi skirt since I was really young! There is something very vintage about them… that black one on the bottom row is stunning. Perhaps I’ll have to keep an eye out for one of these. Very chic for fall!

    Midi’s have been on my mind since your ‘Calm before the Storm’ post…. Thank you for the suggestions. Never purchased anything from ASOS, how is their sizing? Run large/small?

      Aww, thanks Jamie! So sorry for my delayed response! ASOS definitely runs SMALL! By at least a whole size.

    I LOVE the look of the Midi Skirt, but I’m 5’1″ and don’t know that I’ve found one that’s flattering enough to buy. I just got my first high-low skirt, but I’m still not sure of that being flattering either.

    Such a cute style though, and I’m curious to see how you rock it!

      Thanks Jackie! Well, I’m only 5’2″ and I must say it’s been challenging to find midi skirts that flatter my figure. But, I’ve definitely found a few. Keep trying them on and I’m sure you’ll find the perfect one for you.

      Thanks Nikki! Sadly, I had to return the ASOS skirt because the material was not very nice, but hopefully I find another similar one. 🙂
