5 ways to style your midi skirt!

It is that time of the year when you finally take out all those skirts from the wardrobe. Skirts take one back to the 70s and 80s and there are plenty of ways to style one!

Let’s get into my ‘5 ways to style your midi skirt’. Yes! The Midi Skirt, my recent love. Now is the moment and it fits the season perfectly. Either you wear them with crisp collar shirts and ballerinas for work or team up with a crop top for cocktail evenings.

Check out these stylish ways and tell me which one’s your favorite!

For the Mornings

I bought this denim top a year back from Elco Market. It was something I was looking for. A knot in front, something which not just goes with denim shorts and jeans but also skirts. Paired up with sneakers, the idea is to fit the morning perfectly. A playful, carefree morning with a sling bag from India Circus. Don’t they look cute together?

How about an office look?

If you ask me, I have got bored of the regular office look. How about we play around with it a bit and add style? Pick up a crisp shirt from your wardrobe, any colour! Throw this look together with a pair of ballerinas and believe me, the day will look all freshened up. A comfortable yet stylish boardroom look, what do you think?

To add, I have a box clutch here which one can even wear as a sling. It is one of my favorite bags (Wanderlust hint, see that? Stamps and stuff.)

For the evenings

For a fun evening ahead, pair your midi skirt with a full sleeve top and a backpack and a Chic look is all yours. Don’t ask me where I bought that top from. It is some 10 years old, yes. Don’t believe me?

I particularly love the closed neck of it, team up with long earrings and you are good to go!

Late evenings and that cocktail dinner party

A form fitting, high-neck top, heels, clutch and midi skirt – perfect late evening/night look. I have kept the look simple yet elegant here. Throw some colors on with a red lipstick. Super girly and you are guaranteed a fun night!

You can’t say NO to Crop top

Nothing defines a midi skirt better than a crop top. Amp up your wardrobe with back to basics with this crop top & midi skirt. Crop tops have definitely got a chic update! What say? Will you try this look? Team up with wedges and tie up your hair for a change.

All I would say is, Go and buy a midi skirt for yourself before this summer-spring season runs out. Also, don't forget to tell me about your favorite look from the above 5!
