Everyone’s wearing – the Midi (or Calf Length Skirt)

with 3 comments


Usually confined to English teachers and the over 65’s, the calf length skirt or midi, is making a huge come back for Autumn/Winter 2010 thanks to Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.

Done well it can hide a multitude of sins. Cellulite and wobbly post holiday thighs spring to mind.  Keep it light with chiffons and neutrals for the rest of the summer then progress to ladylike wool for winter. Tuck in your blouse and embrace your inner librarian.  These girls show us how it’s done…..
