Trendy Combo: The Midi Skirt And Tee

November 5, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


One trend I am noticing everywhere this fall and one which I love is pairing an otherwise dressy midi skirt with a casual t-shirt. So how can a woman over the age of 30 pull this look off without looking like she’s trying too hard? Stay away from the ‘in your face’ graphic tees. You know the ones that say “I Want Your Husband.” Leave those for the 20-somethings, or your babysitter (who I’d immediately fire). Look for either a full circle or pencil midi skirt and tuck your tee in (we couldn’t graphically show that above). The tee can have a graphic print, say something simple or be a plain colored variety, just please stay away from cropped! Then add your favorite blazer or moto jacket and a pair of heeled booties or pumps. Grab your favorite clutch and head out the door! Here are some examples of the midi skirt and tee look we put together for inspiration:
