The Lure of the Longer Length Skirt

chambray-leopard-full-skirt-1

I’ve had longer length skirts on my mind lately. I feel they look so sophisticated and elegant compared to their mini counterparts, and this crisp full skirt is a current favorite in my wardrobe. In fact, I’ve had longer length skirts so much on my mind, that I’ve finally been tempted to give the midi-skirt a try. A notoriously difficult skirt length, especially if you’re short, it remains to be seen if I can get it to work for me, but I’ll happily give it the ol’ college try.

  1. Glad you’ve crossed over to the Dark Side :). I wear a lot of midis–so comfy and ladylike. This one looks so elegant on you! Love the hints of leopard in your belt and bracelet, too. Tres chic!

    I like it, very chic. Have you tried pinning the sides to see if you took a little of the width out of the bottom sides if it could look even more elegant? At that length I like it so it has plenty of swing but too much looks dowdy on me.

    1. Thank you Tam! I haven’t tried pinning the sides, but I’m sure it could be done if anyone wanted less volume. I like the fullness at this length, but unfortunately it means it only really looks look with heels. No flats if I want to wear this skirt. =P

    That skirt looks so cute on you!! I love that it’s perfectly “full”, if you know what I mean. I’ve been eyeing the midi-skirt as well but have had cold feet everytime I was about to click “add to cart”. I can’t wait to see the possibility of your outfit pairing with a midi-skirt! Have a great rest of the week! :)
