The midi skirt is hot for spring and stylist Jennifer McConville's showing us three ways to wear it. This 50s style skirt is so flirty and feminine you feel like a lady the moment you put it on. And, contrary to popular belief, it’s actually quite flattering on most body types because it can help create an hour glass shape!
Because it’s so girly, wearing this trend with pieces that aren't so feminine is a great idea. Here, a basic striped tee immediately dresses the skirt down and a great basic denim jacket finishes this casual weekend look. This look is perfect for a coffee date, brunch or going shopping with girlfriends.

A one-button blazer helps further define the waist, while balancing out the fullness of the skirt, creating an hourglass shape. If you’ve already got curves, this will show them off in a soft, tasteful way. If you have a straighter figure, this look will create curves for you.
This skirt is meant to stand out and be seen, so consider it the statement piece in your outfit. To highlight your waist, longer shirts or those that fit close to the body should be tucked in. For looser tops and jackets, keep the length at or just below your natural waist. Anything longer will take away from the shape of the skirt and add unflattering bulk to the hip area.
