The button down denim skirt; undeniably one of this year’s biggest trends – the skirt that could launch a thousand ships, probably. Admittedly, I haven’t myself bought one of said mini skirts; partly because I thought it likely to be a fleeting trend; partly because I already own a ton of skirts; mostly because I wasn’t keen on making myself look more like a teenager than is necessary – I think it’s my height that does it!
Anyway, when I saw this high-waist, midi, button down skirt in Forever 21 for £14 I decided it was too good of a bargain to miss. Plus, I thought I would give ‘the midi skirt’ a try as because of my height I tend to veer towards skirts that sit an inch or two above the knee, but as I’ve said before, I’m keen on quashing those petite fashion myths and so I decided to see if I could make it work on my short frame. I thought the length was just about right for me, any longer and it could look disastrous. I tucked in this casual print top (also F21) to balance out the proportion of the long skirt and added a (chunky) heel to not only lengthen the leg, but to avoid making the whole ‘look’ too casual. Thoughts?
Have you been sporting this years most coveted skirt and how would you wear the midi version?Answers on a postcard please!
