The Midi Skirt

Shoe:Occasion Ratio

There’s so much to be said about the perfect midi skirt. The versatility is matchless as a different shoe can change the trajectory of your look. My current favorites to pair with my midi skirts consist of a closed toe pump for work, an open toe sandal for date night/evening, slides for brunch, and tennis for Saturday errands. 

Designer vs Standard

Through my shopping conquests both in store and online I have noticed the difference in midi skirt length given price point, designer, etc. I prefer a midi skirt that hits right below the knee to the shin area and it seems that only designer or higher priced skirts fit that description. A standard  (non designer) midi at best will come directly below the knee. Am I the only one who’s noticed this? For example, here is a standard JCrew midi skirt…notice length

Skirt: JCrew

…now observe this midi skirt from JCrew Collection, a higher end designer-like sector of the brand…

Skirt: JCrew

Do you see my plight!? I don’t know why this is but it seems that the standard midi skirts I purchase rarely come in the correct “midi” length (that perfect below knee to shin range) 

Current Selections

As frustrating as this can be fortunately this seasons fashion has taken a slight shift. I have discovered several purse-friendly “perfect length” midis that I wanted to share!

Nordstrom: Chelsea28




And finally, the perfect designer midis that are currently out of my price range but won’t be for long 😏 Gucci everything

NOTICE THE LENGTHS! I’m just sayin…lol
