casual soring outfit: red polka dot midi skirt with t-shirt and sneakers

ASOS DESIGN Petite midi skirt with kickflare in polka dotThis skirt is a bit of a departure for me.

I mean, not in the sense that it’s, a) RED and b) covered in polka dots, obviously. Those two elements are very much not a departure for me when it comes to skirts, let’s not kid ourselves.

This skirt is also, however, what I would term a true midi – i.e. it hits at mid calf height (or even a bit lower), rather than just below the knee, like all of the cheaty “midi” skirts I usually wear, which – whisper it – aren’t really “midi” length at all. There’s a good reason why I like to cheat with my hem lengths, though, and keep my midis on the shorter side, and it’s simply because true midis tend not to be all that flattering on me – and they also make me feel a bit like an extra in a costume drama, if truth be told. This is also why I don’t own – and have NEVER owned – a single maxi skirt or dress. They’re one of those things that look great on other people, but which just aren’t really me, so I’ve always avoided them like the plague – until I saw this skirt on the ASOS website and, well, it just called to me, basically. Mostly by being red, and having polka dots on it.

This skirt is almost maxi length on me (I got mine from the petite section, or it really would have been: it’s also available in regular and tall, though…), so it would normally be an instant no-no, but it was actually love at first wear. It’s a stretchy jersey fabric which isn’t the thickest, but it’s lightweight and comfortable, which made it perfect for a lovely warm spring day, and I love the way the bright colour allowed me to wear it with a basic white tee, plus the ubiquitous Converse sneakers, and still look like I’d put a bit more thought into the outfit than I actually had.

    I am with you on that, I rarely find a midi length that is flattering on me. Maxis though I wear for summer and days out of the office, I don’t need to shave my legs that way.

    I like this type of skirt. You’ve paired it perfectly with the white top and trainers.
