Trendy Tuesdays: Meet The Midi (Dress / Skirt)

Good morning lovelies! Happy Tuesday!!! Hope you had a fabulous weekend filled with POSITIVITUDE! It is SO insanely hot in Houston right now and we are in our 2nd week of record breaking temperatures. Luckily, I have today off and am spending most of my day INSIDE.

With that being said, I will be doing some online shopping and can't wait to get my hands on this fabulous fashion TREND - the midi.  The MIDI is the middle child of the mini and the maxi.  This style, when worn and styled right, can look amazing and very feminine. For me, I like to wear midi skirts/dresses that are less fitted and are reminiscent of the 40's and 50's (since I LOVE vintage-inspired outfits).  And, as you will see, most of the dresses and skirts have a high waist so pairing it with a thin belt will draw attention to the SMALLEST part of your waist thus adding GREAT curves. For the final touch, I would wear these with a great pair of heels to elongate my silhouette. This trend is VERY sophisticated, feminine, clean, and can be very preppy.

Sigh...CRAZY for this pieces.

Stephanie @ henry happened said...

Oh, I so want one of these skirts! Not sure if it will look good or not but I want it anyway!! :)

The Blonde @ Stylish3 said...

I feel like I'm too short for a midi skirt... I'm afraid I'd look frumpy and too Little House On The Prairie. Guess I should try some on before I judge, though...
