Skirts are a very personal thing, but in general you find your style and stick to it.
In my case, it’s all about the Midi – a length lower than knee but shorter than ankle.
I’m not a massive fan of my legs, so Minis and me will never get on. I quite like a Maxi on a hot Summer’s day, but to be honest, the thought of racing round after the kids and constantly picking my skirt up is a practicality meltdown waiting to happen.
So Midi it is. And I am very happy with that, particularly when there are so many ways to wear what is currently a very on-trend shape.
Raf Simons reintroduced the Dior Forties ‘New Look’ full Midi style for SS13.
And for a budget version, check out Coast’s ‘Rita’ skirt.
Here are some more I currently love. Rock with a grey t-shirt and trainers for a grunged-down look, or team with a cable knit and heels.
