It was the length that everyone said was unwearable unless you were as tall and willowy as Elle MacPherson. It makes you look frumpy and mumsy the magazines screamed. But the midi has proven everyone wrong, proving to be versatile, flattering and most definitely the chosen length for Autumn/Winter 2013/4.
Midi skirts look fabulous with knee high boots for a look that evokes all the images of the fabulous and stylish 70s movie, The Eyes of Laura Mars. The Midi is a grown up look, looking great with silk blouses or worn boho style in fabrics like cord and denim. It is also brilliant, if, like me, you like your legs, but only from the knees down. You are not encased in swathes of fabric like in a maxi skirt, but also not showing off acres of flesh a la mini skirts.
Dorothy Perkins is totally embracing 70s chic midi skirts in its new season styles and I am totally smitten with the look.
