With the temperatures not giving me any hope of rising in the next two weeks, I went ahead and pulled my spring summer pieces down. A girl can dream, right?! I wanted to see what trends I already have in my semi-curated wardrobe. It’s always kind of like shopping when you haven’t seen some pieces in several months. Lo and behold, two of my favorites were there – my grape purple high waist knee skimming pencil skirt, and my yellow full midi skirt with pleats…Joy! Their black and white counterparts stay in my closet 365.
I’ve forever and always been a fan of any skirt that covers or hits just at the knee. Call me old fashion, but there’s something alluring about it. Lucille Ball wore the full skirt with her buttoned up top and small square scarf. In the 70s and 80s, skirts that just slipped over the knee got a slim down thus creating the midi pencil skirt. Spring 2014 is opening up our fashion palettes to the modest throwbacks with the re-vamp of the classic length skirt.
The pencil version is sultry and can be worn as a new office staple, or take it out on the town with some sparkle! The full midi skirt isn’t just for the jr. bridesmaid anymore, either. Give your maxi dress a rest and step out in a comfy midi skirt paired with your favorite top. Throw on a city sandal and try two trends in one for a casual Saturday afternoon stroll.
Check back Wednesday when I show you a few ways you can style your midi skirt this spring!
