Although I love fashion trends, I love them the most when they’re practical and support our busy lifestyles as mums, enter the superstar midi skirt which I’ve been banging on about for the last few months as a fashion-trend-turned-wardrobe-essential and why I recommend this item in my MUMMY MAKEOVER SYDNEY service.
It’s a garment long enough to keep us warm during these months when the weather is awkward and hides our modesty when running around after our little ones, bending over to get them out the car etc. They look fantastic with flat shoes yet still elegant enough to be worn with a heel out in the evening or to work.
Find Your Style
Lots of clients avoid skirts as they don’t know how to outfit them and lack confidence with which style is right for them. My advice is to start with an ‘A’ line shape as it’s universally the easiest style to make work, the key is to generally tuck the top in and show some of the waistband to ensure the most flattering look.
Skirts are so comfortable to wear and SO much easier to fit well compared to other clothes such as pants. If you have wider calf muscles, try and get the finished length to finish at a narrower part of the leg.
How to Dress
As a PERSONAL SHOPPER I spend a lot of time introducing clients to different skirt and top combinations in a variety of silhouettes.
It’s these versatile trans-seasonal clothes that should make up the bulk of your wardrobe as they can be cleverly styled up to create new looks. I’ve pulled together a few easy-to-wear playground appropriate outfits using the midi skirt and my other favorite must have, the statement tee. This is another garment that’s easy-fit, easy-care, easy-wear!
This is an easy outfit formula that can create a variety of looks suitable for not only the playground, but the office, a lunch date, meetings or even the grocery shopping :
