A femme skirt is easily elevated with a silk tank, but you could also top it with a fitted sweater or even a sweatshirt.
ASOS skirt ($68)
The midi skirt (with a D). It?s been swinging around the block, and we can?t think of a better office-appropriate item to welcome into your summer rotation. That said, styling the midi can be tricky. One wrong turn and you?re swimming in a sea of fabric.
Here, a few tips to prevent your fashionable look from turning frumpy.
Tuck it in There?s already a lot of volume going on here, so maintain a defined waist by keeping your shirt in. For a cute down-home look, try tying a button-down shirt at your waist. We know, we just advised you to tie a shirt, but trust us: With a tailored top, it?s decidedly chic.
Keep it short Think a cropped, boxy-fit top. Everlane makes a soft casual tee, whereas Tibi?s leather tank lends an upscale feel. Most midi skirts are fairly high-waisted, so don?t fret about baring your midriff. Need a layering piece? Look for a nipped-in blazer or denim jacket.
Color block Pair a solid-color midi with a solid-color top. Done and done.
Add some height Block heels. Wedges. Heeled booties. All of them look adorable with this flowing skirt, but avoid anything with ankle straps--they?ll visually shorten your legs. If you must wear flats, opt for pointed toes to elongate your legs. We?re partial to our d?Orsays.
