I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. I know everyone says this, but really – it feels like 2014 started yesterday! This was my fifth week over at LookingFlyOnADime. Although, I’d like the time to slow down – I’d definitely love for the spring temperatures to hurry up! With NYFW starting today and a little over a month left of this cold, I think it’s a great time to start talking about transitioning our wardrobes for warmer months. The midi is one of my favorite transitional pieces. It pairs perfectly with all the best winter staples – flannel and chambray tops, cropped sweaters, leather jackets and then paired with a floral blouse and sandal, it becomes a spring staple.
Mastering the midi is quite simple once you know the basics. Choosing the perfect midi skirt depends on two things, your shape and height. If you are short opt for a version that falls just below the knee – showing more leg for the illusion of longer legs. If you are tall, a length just above the ankle will suit you best. Depending on whether you’re curvy, bottom heavy or have a boyish figure – you’ll want to choose one that compliments you. Jersey knits work best for those women that are curvier because it will hug you in all the right places accentuating your waistline. A women who is bottom heavy should choose a loose flowing, A-line version of the midi. And for those women (like me!) who tend to have a more boyish figure – a midi with volume and structure will give you those womanly curves you seek.
