The classy silhouette is a must-have item for the fashionable collegiate, so read on for some amazing ideas for how to style this piece and shop the chicest pieces for this season!

The trend was originally popularized in the early 1970s as fashions transitioned from flower power to seventies sleek. As always, fashion has repeated itself and the midi is the must-have piece for 2018. Midi skirt are twirly delights of swirling fabric, that make you think of Audrey Hepburn, Christian Dior and the glamour of the 40s and 50s. When wearing a full midi skirt, the best way to rock this look is through balancing proportions and patterns. If you choose to wear a patterned skirt, there will be a lot going on in the bottom half of your outfit, so it’s best to keep your top simpler. Crop tops and midi skirts are basically made for each other. Again, it’s all about balancing proportions, and the smaller top will contrast with the full skirt bottom beautifully. With a fuller skirt, go ahead and try out a tight crop top! If you want to avoid baring your midriff altogether, pick a crop top that hits right at the waistline of the skirt.
