First let’s talk about what a midi skirt is…It’s a skirt that falls below your knee and above your ankle. Preferably, just a couple of inches below your knee (most flattering length). I think the taller you are, the easier it is going to be for you to pull this off. If you are petite like me, heels are a MUST.
PAIRED WITH: Okay, so to exaggerate the high waist of the this skirt, I paired it with a crop top. The key to wearing a crop top is showing just a sliver of skin between the bottom of your rib cage and above your belly button…the sweet spot! High-waisted pants or skirts are also a must.
ALTERNATIVES: A fitted black/navy/white T-shirt, blouse, knit, turtleneck, etc, would also work very well if you do NOT want to try a cropped top.
COLOR: I chose black with this skirt, because I really wanted the skirt to be the focal point. Keeping everything else pretty neutral allows the skirt to shine.
ACCESSORIES: I thought about layered pearls, but opted for gold layering necklaces to modernize this already retro look.
SHOES: I finished off the look with some of my favorite ankle strap sandals that are only $43!! Again, adds a modern touch. You can also try pointed-toe, ankle boots, or pumps.
BTW, yes, the skirt is navy, not black, but there is NO reason why you can’t wear black and blue together!
