Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Trend: Midi Skirts
Maxi and mini skirts are sooooooo last season! If you want to be on-trend this season go out and grab a midi skirt (Above: Chloe; Christian Dior; Haider Ackermann; Louis Vuitton). If you've never heard of the midi skirt, it is skirt that hits just below the knee or a little longer at mid-calf. They can be full (Chloe and Christian Dior), fitted (Haider Ackermann), or a-line (Louis Vuitton). This trend is most flattering on taller women because the length does tend to cut off the leg line and make your legs appear shorter, but I recently found a fitted midi-length dress that is actually pretty flattering and I am a mere 5'2'', so I wouldn't count this trend out entirely if you are vertically challenged like me. Below are some options to choose from if you want to give this trend a try: A Wear contrast pleated skirt for $79.16 on www.asos.com; ASOS high shine skater skirt for $79.16 on www.asos.com; B.
