FIND YOUR MIDDLE GROUND
Full midi skirts were popular in the 1940s for their grace and elegance. Today, these highly versatile skirts are back in style, thanks to designers who gave them the love they deserve, and presented them in various materials and silhouettes. Fendi played up the femininity with a full lace ensemble of collared blouse and midi skirt that balanced subtle sensuality with sophistication. Jil Sander, meanwhile, went with an adorable yet chic bubble number paired with a top in the same style for a youthful, lively vibe. Coach kept things light and cheery with a vibrant leather skirt and fuss-free separates in complementary hues, while Dior stayed true to its girl power roots with tailored pieces teamed with a wide-fringe skirt, complete with combat boots and kohled eyes. Over at Balenciaga, a denim option was presented as a wardrobe staple—to be dressed up with a silk blouse and heels for the office, or dressed down with a tank top and sneakers for the weekend.
