My Mom gave me a midi skirt for my birthday and I love it. I know they’re a big trend this fall and I’d like to buy one or two more of them. Can you help me find a black pencil midi, and maybe one more that is more interesting? I love your blog and would love your help!!!
Midi-skirts are on a lot of must-have lists this fall. I’ve tried on a few styles that I like, but a word of caution about midis: You need to tailor them to the perfect midi-length for you. Because I have shorter legs, my perfect length is just under the knee. For other women, it might be mid-calf. So if you try one on and it’s not super flattering, try one in another length or pin it up to see that skirt at another length.
For a relaxed take on the pencil skirt, try this ponte number from Vince Camuto. I also love this Gianni Bini skirt that has a professional look and sleek shape (it’s also machine washable). And check out the texture on this under-$50 skirt from Jane Norman–it’s fun and functional.
Plus-size? This Old Navy skirt is a great option at a great price.
I thought this a-line leather skirt was kind of fun, especially in the less-common navy color. I also found this dotted Halogen skirt in a fuller, pleated style (so Kate Spade). This burgundy jacquard number, with a full shape, has a vintage feel to it.
