This season is all about the midi length skirt. Girls of the world can rejoice – the thigh baring mini has been replaced with a more modest cut – hoorah! But truth be told the midi is a tricky length to master. If, like yours truly you are not gifted with height, the bisection of your shins can make you look a bit like a troll (an on-trend troll, but a troll never the less) so you probably need to give yourself an extra boost with some heels. I’m wearing these gorgeous pair by Kurt Geiger that are packing some serious stiletto punch, and with a pair of socks (hey it’s 3*C still!).
Another midi-must is a nipped in waist or an exposed bit of belly, but if flashing your flesh is not for you, I recommend pairing your full skirt with a menswear shirt. Opt for well-fitted shirting, so look for menswear labels that offer S or XS sizes – high street labels tend to be a good bet. My bunny print shirt is from Topman and I’m wearing it with a Mayla skirt and silk knit.
