Lady in Red: Flowy Midi Skirt

In my wardrobe, you’ll see a plethora of mini skirt – almost to the point of absurdity. Okay, that maybe an overly strong statement, but you get the idea. I rarely wear any medium to long skirts because I’ve been told they do not look good on me.ย  One time, I tried on a blue midi skirt, which in my opinion was pretty darn cute, and my grandmother gasped and said: “Why are you wearing such a long skirt? Young girls like you should show more skin!” And I never wore a midi skirt again after that. Until now.

I was recently in Anthropologie looking for some new styles. To be honest, I’ve always been a fan of the brand, but I’ve never really been able to find too many styles that fit within my taste. They have lots of amazing boho-styled clothing, which is not exactly my style. But I was so pleasantly surprised that I found this stunning red midi skirt and this incredibly elegant white top.

The cut of this top reminds me of some red carpet dresses. I wish I remember which celebrity has worn something similar, but it has escaped my head. The back of the top has ties that you can style your own way, which I thought is pretty cool.

Skirt

Now on to this stunning red midi skirt. For someone like me, midi skirt is actually a great option because unlike knee-length skirt, it covers most of my calves, which I thought are a little bloated (genetically, so can’t do much about it). A trick to make midi skirt work to your advantage (i.e. make you look taller) is to wear it above your actual waistline. That way, you secretly stretched the length of your lower body, which in turn creates the illusion that you’re taller than you really are.

What do you think of this look? How do you usually wear midi skirts?
