I have such a love for midi-anything. I’m not sure when this full-fledged love affair began but my closets slowly been filling up with midi dress after midi dress. Maybe it’s a problem but I’d like to think of it as a collection of classics 😉
If you don’t know what a “midi” is, it simply refers to a skirt or dress that hits below the knee but above the ankle. Normally it flairs out for a more vintage vibe.
Recently I wrote a column on the three most popular skirt lengths (mini, midi and maxi) and I found out this demure skirt has quite the rambunctious history! If you really think about it, you can tell a lot of what was going on in history by looking at the type of skirt women were wearing and boy does the midi have a lot to say.

The return of the midi skirt in fashion was a direct response to the miniskirt, and when the ’70s hit, the fashion industry — even Hollywood — tried to push them on the public. But women wanted nothing to do with them! They didn’t want to be told how short (or long) their hemline should be (just search hemline wars). It wasn’t until many years later that the midi became a trendy “it” skirt again. Women started to see it as a closet staple and now love it for its flattering silhouette and versatility.
This is one of my favorite things about fashion. Yes it’s a way to express ourselves but when clothes were simply a necessity, they were telling of the times and now they’re a reflection of how far we’ve come.
I’m doing something a little different today and sharing my makeup details as well! For the most part, I keep it pretty much the same for all my posts but it’s also what I like to wear for special occasions since it’s long-lasting and works for photography.
