How to style a print midi skirt

More ideas on how tall and petite women can wear the same items. The skirt Dee and I are wearing is one that I bought at least three years ago from WinserLondon. You can see me wearing it here. This skirt can be adapted in the same way as the black and white dress I featured recently. Again, with an elasticated waistband which is comfortable and can be raised or lowered as appropriate. Dee has paired it with a similar shade top to streamline the silhouette and add height and I’ve teamed it with a white tee shirt and jewellery. You can easily adapt this look with a denim jacket and comfy shoes for running around town or for a cooler and casual evening look.

I am wearing my skirt with a plain white tee, simple summer sandals and a turquoise and blue necklace.

Winser London doesn’t seem to offer anything similar so I have shown similar maxi skirts below.

Dee is wearing the same skirt with a similar coloured satin top. Keeping the colours similar helps to create a streamlined vertical line. The statement necklace helps to draw the eye upwards.

We have both added denim jackets for a more casual look. I have not tried this combination before and think it really works.

A few of you commented that you can no longer wear heels. I must say that I now find it too difficult to walk in heels probably due to my dodgy left hip. Dee recommends wearing espadrille-style trainers. They can add height without the wobble factor. I have shown a few examples below.

    Thank you for another very helpful post. I am 5ft 2 and struggle with skirt and top proportion. Often default to dresses. I am now on a hunt for tops that continue skirt main colour as Dee demonstrated so well.

    Beautiful, flattering outfits on both of you. You tee, which I think is cropped, is the perfect length to wear with a skirt when you don’t want to tuck it in. A regular length tee left out can look sloppy and give you the wrong proportions. I must see if I can find some cropped (but not too cropped) tees or manage to hem some of my own to that perfect length. Another lovely, helpful post.

    The outfits are lovely and very well styled. I bought a similar skirt over 2 years ago and have never worn it . At 5′ 3″ I thought the length would make me taller, not so. The skirt was put away. Now I see how it can look, the length, the pairing with a white cropped Tee, etc. The skirt will be going to the seamstress this week. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos.

    Luv it! Have picked up some great tips re denim jackets, really using white currently. Have to find those trainers here in Canada which would boost me up in midi lengths.

      Sylvia Cassie. Try Reiker and Remonte for those trainers. They are great.

    Hi Josephine, sometimes you wear something that I think looks really fantastic on you. This week it is the denim jacket with the tee shirt and long skirt. Totally youthful, just the right style, colour and fit!

    Those outfits look wonderful. I’m 5′ 3″ ,have foot problems, so heels are painful. I usually use coordinated gilets to appear taller but like the denim jacket idea

    It is really lovely seeing how your styling options can be adapted and how good they look on Dee. I’m only 5′ 0″ so it really helps.
