What am I jazzed about this summer? Not cutoff jean shorts or the always classic white v-neck tee but the feminine, ladylike mid-calf skirt that is making an appearance on all the runway shows this season. It’s no secret that the fashion world constantly pulls from the past for fashions future, but this time designers are going retro. Fashionista’s can easily spot the strong presence of the 70s inspired long skirts in many magazines and look-books. The new trend has come to us in a wide range of different styles from loose fitting, flowing skirts or traditional silhouettes to the fitted, more vixen-esq styles.
Thankfully as trends become more rampant the designs offered tend to increase as well, which creates a bigger and better spectrum of options for the (fabulously) average woman. A chic and fashionable item, the mid-calf skirt (also known as the midi skirt) is an elegant piece that will quickly prove its value in the everyday wardrobe.
