Plus Size Trends

I Really Love My…. Midi Skirts

You know, sometimes when we love something, like really love something, we tend to fall into a place, whether we notice or not, to repeat or gravitate towards it over and over again. For me, its the MIDI SKIRT.

For me, next to leather details, I am IN LOVE with midi length skirts and dresses. This length is everything for me. And with this particular trend showing out for fall, I am here for all of this… ALL OF THIS. I didn’t even realize how much I love this particular trend until I started looking at my past outfit posts and a few of my favorite Gotta Have Its. LOL

What’s a Midi Skirt?

A skirt that hits in the middle of the calf. Longer than a pencil, not exactly a maxi length.

As NY Mag called out this trend for fall, I am here for it.

Midi skirts in various styles. Pencil, and a-line. Dresses and skirts. Leather midi pencil skirts, wool, and jersey. I want a variety of them.

Why?

Well, I like the fine line that Midi length pieces play, both edgy, sexy, feminine, demure, playful, sassy… basically all of these. This length can translate across a variety of occasions, moods, and personal styles! The flexibility of this skirt is one I both love and live for.

In addition, this skirt length helps me feel sharp without worrying about showing too much. A pencil feels too formal for me, but the longer length is definitely sassier, in my book.

I just made these two skirts mine:
