MMM: Manhattan’s still mad on Midis #NYFW

Working for a weekly fashion magazine is my day job. So in between wondering whether I’ve got enough whole milk and Petit Filous in the fridge, my mind is full of catwalk images, street style pictures and who wore what and when.

Fashion – as we all know – is a topsy turvy world where, just as we’re thinking of putting the heating on and buying our Winter coat in the real world, the fashion world watches models parade up a catwalk in next Spring’s collections.

As I write, all eyes are on the runway in NYC where the likes of Donna Karan, Victoria Beckham and Derek Lam are all showing off their vision for SS14. Then on Friday  (13th!) the world will descend upon the capital for London Fashion Week, where I will be amongst thousands heading for their seats in tents erected in Somerset House.

What to wear, what to wear? *EEEK*

Despite the fact NYFW has only been on for the past few days, one thing is clear – both on the catwalks and in the wardrobe choices of the attendees – the midi skirt ain’t going anywhere in a hurry.

Hot style ticket of this Summer, it looks set to be a skirt player next year too – plus it’s the go-to shape for fashion editors at the shows.

    Midi skirts are also my favorites this summer and I surly plan to wear them next season , Never the less, I think that special attention has to be given to how to wear a midi skirt as it can look very frumpy…See my tips on http://lifestyleover40.com/2013/09/09/how-to-wear-a-midi-skirt/. Sara

    I thought we were talking about midi rings! Whoops. These all look lovely-although they can definitely look frumpy (like in the last image).
