Style Theory: The perfect Spring skirt, the midi skirt can be styled with ankle or knee high boots now and in the summer wear with trainers or strappy tan sandals. So elegant, super stylish and a surprisingly easy skirt to wear, it looks just as good dressed up as it does dressed down. Here are the best on the high street now and a few ideas on how to style them...
Topshop Satin Pleat Skirt £45
I love this skirt, a beautiful shade of pink, you can wear now with a pale grey jumper (a grey cashmere hoody would be perfect) or this affordable cashmere sweater from H&M below.
H&M Cashmere Jumper £49.99
Such a brilliant price and the softest cashmere (I have this in pale pink) I would size up for a slouchy fit with the skirt, tuck a corner of the sweater in your skirt to create shape and add a pair of trainers or block heeled shoes for a cool, wearable look.
Or wear the pink skirt with a pink or cream shirt as I have done above, the perfect smart look for a summer event.
Topshop Skirt £49
The perfect metallic midi skirt, it would look great with a black, slightly slouchy poloneck (size up) and I love these shoes..the white and black version are stunning and would give this skirt a real edge (25% off at KG at the moment with the code kg25 )...
Kurt Geiger £180
Or love them in black with the gold heels..
Kurt Geiger £180
The gold heel will look great against the metallic skirt and these shoes will look equally good with ankle length jeans and a silk shirt or cold shoulder blouse.
Zara Fine Pleated Metallic Midi Skirt £39.99
A beautiful gold/silver shimmery skirt, wear now with black or grey, in the summer wear with tan sandals, a white tee shirt add a biker jacket to toughen up the look.
Asos reduced to £22
I have a similar skirt to this in grey and it looks fab in the day worn with a grey logo sweater and trainers..I have my eyes on these trainers at the moment (seem to be having a KG love in at the moment!)
KG Lille Trainers £99
Such cute trainers, they look fab on and the black elastic detail would look perfect with the black skirt. Again 25% off with the code kg25.
Mango £49.99
A beautiful deep green, this skirt would look gorgeous matched with shades of camel, grey, blues or pink, add a contrasting pop of colour with a mustard bag or wear green on green as above in the streetstyle image.

The midi skirt is the perfect item to shake it up a little in your wardrobe, it just makes a looks a little more interesting, different,

Do you have a midi skirt in your wardrobe bought from past seasons? Would you be brave enough and mix it up and little and wear it casually in the day? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until the next time Fran xxxx

    I'm about to have 40th birthday I'm loathed to buy a proper 'just going out out outfit' because with two little ones it won't see the light of day again! I'm thinking separates I can dress up/down. Any pearls of wisdom much appreciated! ❤️ Tam mamalikesnice
