Midi is the new maxi?

I'm not saying the maxi is a no-go anymore, I just like the midi, it's elegant but quirky.
Personally I think the more demure midi length means you can get away with something that may look tacky in a shorter length such as...

ASOS drape midi €44.87 - get some metallics into your wardrobe!

This lovely fifties Reiss dress is a nod to the strong crimson trend predicted for Autumn 2011...

Reiss Leah Frill dress $300

ASOS 50s knitted dress €64.10. This is so cute. Would it hold its shape though?

ASOS Ponti dress, also in orange €64.10

Modcloth B.Jones midi skirt $89.99
I really love leather midi skirts with pleats in light colours, in particular these wide box pleats. There's something very demure and elegant about them but the leather stops them being too twee. And the pleats stop you looking tacky!

ASOS White leather midi skirt €115.38
Whistles grey leather midi €288.45.
If you don't fancy wearing half a cow here's a dusky pink fabric version from Topshop....

Topshop box pleat skirt £40
It's box pleats all the way methinks....


  1. The box pleat leather midis look great! Doubt I couldwear that length though!

  2. Hi Aoife, not sure I could get away with it either but I do love the ASOS one. It's that lovely putty colour!
