Try the trend - Midi skirts

Midi skirts – those skirts that end in the middle of your calf, somewhere between your ankle bone and knee – were all over the Spring 2014 runways and are popping up in almost every major retailer for the spring and summer seasons. However, despite their popularity and accessibility, they should be approached with caution.

Because their hemline hits where it does and because most midi skirts are full in shape, they can have the unfortunate effect of shortening the wearer’s leg. So, unless you have the height and build of a supermodel, you must follow these rules in order to make the trend flattering.

Heels are a must.

Unfortunately, this is a non-negotiable. Because of the height lost due to the length and hemline of the skirt, you must add it back with your footwear. And, in this case, size most certainly does matter.

Your top(s) should be fitted.

To balance out the proportions of your outfit, your top(s) must be fitted in order to counteract the fullness of the midi skirt. Tuck in your body conscious top such as Adea’s ¾-sleeve boat neck layering top or double down on trends by slipping into a crop top. If you are in need of yet another layer, a cropped, fitted cardigan or short, lean leather or denim jacket are the perfect options

Make it your own.

Although it demands some very specific pairings, the midi skirt is actually rather malleable when it comes to styling. Pick your own personal direction and make a bold statement. For example, play up the midi skirt’s inherently demure, lady-like quality with classic pumps, pearl necklaces, a perfectly coiled bun and a red lip. Or, if that isn’t your cup of tea, use the skirt’s unique length to make your every bohemian and urban hippie-inspired dream come true with chunky, platform wedges, floral prints and braids. No matter what you do, just be sure to go all in and to never “skirt” the issue.

Now, go with the fashion gods and wear your midi skirts with confidence!

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

September 30, 2020

For some time now I have been reading items in the media about Marie Kondo, the “tidying consultant” and I must admit, I’m completely baffled by the whole subject. She has been in the public eye since 2011, when her book The Life-Changing, Pulsing Magic of Tidying Up in Japan.
