Ladylike

Trina Turk Julienne 2 Skirt | Stuart Weitzman Privacy Pumps | Clare Vivier Leopard Foldover Clutch | #MomentsOfChic

I finally embraced a longer length and purchased my first midi skirt.

I love the ladylike sophistication of this box pleated skirt and the perfectly on trend fall floral pattern.  The shiny texture makes this a great choice for a special occasion.  I wore it to a shower last weekend and plan to wear it to a holiday party or two in the months to come.

When styling a midi skirt, it’s important to keep proportion in mind.  When the skirt is full, a more form fitting top will be most figure-flattering.  I can definitely see this skirt with my  favorite Vince turtleneck or a cashmere sweater (or a crop top for the more fashion forward).  A leather jacket would also give it a more edgy vibe.

For the more petite, a heel that shows the top of your foot will lengthen your legs to avoid the frump-factor.  With the right proportions, this shape is a universally flattering choice.

    Beautifully styled, and you definitely avoided the frump factor with those shoes! :)

    Love. Love. Love this skirt! The clutch with it is so edgy and fun, yet still somehow timeless. Wonderful post! Makes me want to shop and give midi a try.
