midi muses

While midi skirts were a big hit in the street style scene during fashion week, I have yet to see them make a solid appearance in the "high street." Which leads me to question 1) Is it really a trend item? Or am I just making this up because I personally am a fan 2) Maybe this whole blogging thing has made an impact. I have the maaaaagical ability to "trend forecast" 3) I am a clueless bafoon who has no idea where to shop. Regardless, I just wish there were more affordable options out there. Obviously the two measly midi skirts I own... I left in Jersey. This is what happens when you're a last minute packer. Thankfully, ASOS is on the forefront of all things fashion related and they seem to have a little bit of everything on their site. The first skirt/dress are a bit ridiculous for me price range wise, but I could see myself purchasing one of the later ones as an impulse splurge. With a coupon code, of course.

And now for some real life midi wearing muses hittin the streets. Are you getting tired of me saying the title yet? Midi muse, midi muse, midi muse. I think personally why I'm attracted to this silhouette, is that there's something sorta unexpected about it. In a sea of mini skirts, you would think that a midi skirt would be matronly and frumpy. Specially on someone so young. As my cousin so aptly told me, I was not allowed to look like an old maid in NYC night life. But styled the right way, these skirts make for the most effortlessly stylish of outfits-- which these gals prove. Personally, I prefer skirts that hit closer to the ankle, since they make for more flattering proportions in my eyes.

  1. Love midi skirts - I just think it's hard to find one that's perfectly flattering on all body types though. But when done correctly, it looks so chic and elegant! I really like a-line midi skirts! So flowy and pretty :]

  3. I love midi skirts! Ugh but being the petite little kind of person I am, I doubt I'll look good in it. Maybe with a pair of pumps.
    Well, that's what heels are for. :P

    Love your blog so much!

  8. I don't think all those skirts you shared here are midi skirts but anyway, this post made me think if I would actually wear a midi skirt in real life myself. the thing is I got a pretty amazing thrifted midi dress for myself and considered making it shorter but now I'm thinking about leaving it the way it is. it would be a pretty cool challenge to style it! and I would also love to see your variants ;)

  9. That's a really good point. I've hardly seen any out in the stores here, mostly just online like ASOS and Shopbop. Either way this isn't something I'd indulge in since I am way too short!

  15. I love midi skirts and dresses. I have been on the hunt for a decently priced one particularly in the pattern of plaid and of course solid BLACK. And I totally agree with you, midi skirts aren't as accepted by everyone just yet (I don't see why it isn't). But so glad for this post!
