FD: Wednesday 29th August - A Midi Experiment

We've all seen and read about ladylike trends, most of which I love - everyone knows I'm a sucker for a cropped jacket or a stiletto. But then there's this trend for midi skirts... I'm good with midi length, on a pencil skirt; it's fitted and flattering, but voluminous? I wasn't so sure.

This evening then I dug out my longest, most voluminous skirt (excluding obviously full on maxis!) and played guinea pig as I went out for dinner, all in the name of blogging. Dedication much?

Skirt, as you can see in the picture, is, technically speaking, more knee-length than midi, but it still felt very long indeed, hence the heels. I figured ankle boots might serve to be slightly 'tougher' than shoes, though I still felt a bit like an off duty ballerina, probably not helped by my choice of nude beaded cami to tuck in. In an attempt to find my waist, I added a belt and finished the whole thing with my new boucle jacket (a bit like a safety blanket in this scary voluminous world, and obviously my favourite part of the look).
So what do we think? I'm still undecided so do share your opinion - Midi good or midi bad?

  1. Midi good! A lovely change from a maxi :) definitely needs heels though I agree xxx
