Having a Midi Moment?

Are you having a midi moment yet? If not, it’s time to move your style in the midi direction. At first glance you might be thinking, “yes, midi skirts and dresses are really cute, but I couldn’t pull that off!” And I am here to tell you, YES YOU CAN! Just keep a few things in mind before you take the plunge.

Here are a few key style factors to incorporate into your search for the perfect midi….

When in doubt, wear heels.

Sure, wearing stilettos or platform heels isn’t always ideal but if you’re of average height and want to maximize your midi, add a flirty wedge or block heel sandal to the mix to counterbalance the {potentially} unflattering length.

Select the right length!

Sometimes a midi skirt or dress can go awfully awry (can I get an amen from all my fellow short girls?) but it can surely be stylish and flattering on those without supermodel height. What’s the trick to avoiding that awkward length? Select a length that hits right above the top of your calf. Even petite fashionistas can crush this look! Here’s proof…

It’s all in details, darling…

When possible, choose a dress that offers a sheer or lace overlay to provide an optical illusion of an elongated frame.

This dress is so very aesthetically pleasing, reminiscent of a beautiful watercolor painting. Looks like it has fabulous twirling potential too. What girl doesn’t love a good twirl?!
