1 Skirt, 3 Ways: How to Style a Mid-Length Skirt for Work, Weekend, and Travel
July 20, 2015
If you can make room in your closet for a mid-length skirt, we suggest you do so–immediately. It’s not the most “corporate” of looks, but it’s perfectly office-appropriate, and that’s exactly why we love it.
If you’ve never attempted this silhouette, fear not. It’s flattering, no matter what your height. Super tall? It will graze your upper calves. Quite petite? It will swing just above your ankles Either way, it’s a look that manages to be both super-cool and quite grown-up. Here’s how to style a mid-length skirt for work, weekend and travel.
At the office…
Ready to be the chicest person at work? Go for soft, neutral colors and tuck a high-necked silk blouse into the skirt for a look that’s both professional and fashion-forward. Skirt: MM.LaFleur. Shirt: Equipment. Shoes: Kate Spade. Bag: Cuyana. Eyeshadow: YSL.
Gallery-hopping on the weekend…
It’s Saturday! Edge up your look with a few black leather accents and comfy sneaks. You never want to look too prim when cavorting with the art-buying set. Skirt: MM.LaFleur. Shirt: MM.LaFleur. Sneakers: Vince. Bag: Mansur Gavriel. Necklace: MM.LaFleur.
Impromptu jaunt to Europe…
You impulse-bought a plane ticket and you’re headed to Europe—tomorrow. (Nice work.) This soft, tonal ensemble will look as good in the streets of Copenhagen is it will when you’re sipping Limoncello under an arbor on the Amalfi coast. Enjoy that, by the way. Skirt: MM.LaFleur.
