This look was partly inspired by the characters of the television show, Mad Men—featuring a 1940s midi swing skirt. I love the longer length of the skirt, which gives me the liberty of pairing with a tank top to balance out the conservatism

Adding a few gold details brightens up the look and gives the outfit some overall sparkle

One of my favorite duos is definitely lace and pearls. I feel like you can’t ever go wrong pairing these two beautiful and delicate pieces together.

And to accent my gold details, a sheer gold pair of open-toed heels. The 3inch heel is a good size for this more conservative outfit, while also making sure that my figure doesn’t look too petite in the midi skirt!

I hope this look has inspired you to create some looks with the midi skirt!

The Midi Skirt: Parisian Chic

One of my favorite trends on the rise right now: The Midi Skirt. Now, personally, styling the midi skirt can be a little tricky, especially because I’m not used to such a long skirt.

Being petite as it is, I chose this midi skirt because of the mesh band that cuts through the skirt—this way, my legs don’t look too short despite the longer length of the skirt.

This look was Parisian inspired, which means the classic white and black striped shirt and of course, a modern blazer!

To accessorize, I added a statement necklace to add a fun detail to the collar while also cinching the skirt with a bow belt. 

image

To match the belt, I chose to wear my gold bow patent heels. Heels are especially important here, to elongate the legs since the skirt falls a little under the knees.

And voila! A Parisian inspired look featuring the midi skirt!
