If you've noticed a trend, it's because a new one's been born in my wardrobe - midis. Midi length dresses, skirts and pants are my new favorite silhouette. They have a way of blending chic and casual and offer so many stylistic varieties when putting an outfit together. When I spotted this pleated midi (similar here and here) I immediately envisioned about 6 difference outfits I could incorporate with it. It's such an easy, effortless piece that still comes off elevated and fashion-forward. Who said pleats are old school? When I saw this trend buzzing around on social media and all the ways it could be styled I was all for it. I opted to go more casual for this look, pairing the skirt with sneakers and a crop top. The crop allowed to balance out the length of the skirt and break off the overall look with a peek of skin in between. Meanwhile, the sneaks offered a modern, street-style look for all those wanting comfort over cute (yes, please). So whether you throw on strappy heels, booties or classic loafers, these midi skirts can live in your closets for years to come. Next time you see a good one, don't let it get away!
