Don't Call me Kim K
Tight, long, midi skirts have been in the past year and are still around this spring/summer season. One of the biggest people around who always wears midis is Kim K
. Among other celebs who rock this body-
shaping look, she's always seen sporting a midi skirt or dress. Let's make things straight. Don't call this the Kim K look.
What's great about midi skirts is that they can keep you warm. They are long enough so on those cold summer nights (or days) your legs can stay toasty. And they are great for all my hourglass silhouette ladies out there. If you aren't one, don't worry. Wearing this look can create that silhouette. All you need to do is grab a long midi skirt -- make sure it's tight all over and doesn't flare at the bottom -- and a crop top of your choice. This will lengthen your legs and shorten your torso. The gap between your crop top and skirt will define and bring attention to your waist.
Go with some minimalist heels if you are feeling girly or ambitious enough to walk around them all day in the city. I opted for some Converse sneakers. I wanted to stay comfy and add a touch of boyish causal look. I also sported up my look with a baseball cap and a leather jacket. The monochromatic palm tree graphics on my knotted top adds an urban touch. Kept my colors in the grayscale to create a clean look.
