Going to the ballet. Has there ever been a better reason to get dolled up? I don’t think so. When I heard the New York Ballet was coming to the Kennedy Center, I knew I had to pull a fresh New York piece out of my closet for a night out in DC. So I experimented with a midi skirt for the first time. This is how to style a midi skirt.How To Style a Midi Skirt Rule #1: Play with silhouettes.
I like to feel like my clothes are a second skin. That means plenty of tight LBDs and bodycon dresses. When I first picked this skirt up in New York, I pictured it being styled with more of the same. Fitted turtle necks and tight blouses. That is, until I thought to myself, “What would Kate Middleton do?” I reached into the back of my closet and pulled out this vintage sheer netted blouse. On top of a tight spaghetti strap tank top, it was pure magic.
How To Style a Midi Skirt Rule #2: Stick to open toed pumps or booties.
This is, in my opinion, the golden rule to style a midi skirt. Booties give the legs character while open toed pumps elongate the legs. I chose these silver satin pumps with bows to match the femininity of my bow clutch, bow skirt waist, and bow accented pearl earrings. A clever theme can keep a midi skirt look, well, clever. The last thing you’d want is to show up to the ballet looking like a circus tent.
How To Style a Midi Skirt Rule #3: In the words of Madonna, strike a pose.
Posture can make or break your midi skirt look. Walk with posture befitting of a ballerina. Twirl, wave, smile. Everyone is talking about your midi skirt, so make sure you carry it smashingly.
