How to wear midi skirts
Don't get me wrong; I'm the biggest fan of skinny jeans and trainer wedges, but I just love it when ladylike styles are on trend too. There's something I adore about a low key, but highly polished style and the key piece for this look is the midi skirt.
A midi style is super flattering (ask Gok), finishing just below the knee and is perfect for spring/summer when teamed with a cami vest like Topshop's lacey version above. For such an elegant look, I'd keep the jewellery simple but statement to bring it up to date - I love this cocktail ring from Asos.
With this kind of look, there's always a danger of taking it a little too far and ending up looking quite 'twee' so I've added a couple of preppy touches to the look to make it more current. Firstly, the acetate round prescription glasses in brown. Even if you're not a glasses wearer, they can be worn with blank lenses. Round glasses frames are expected to be hugely popular this year, the style has a fabulous vintage inspired style to them and they look amazing with a retro/geek look.
To complete the look, what else but a brown leather satchel from the Cambridge satchel company. This simple tan bag is one of my favourites and is so versatile. I think this with the brown glasses finish off the outfit beautifully. If you like our How To Wear series, why not follow us on Twitter or add us to your circles on Google + to keep up to date :)
So what do you think, what will you be wearing with your midi?
