For the past several seasons, miniskirts have ruled the skirt kingdom. And then last fall, maxi skirts started to fight for attention and a place in our closets. Now, there’s a new skirt trend vying for our love, but like most skirt trends, it isn’t new at all.
The trend is full midi skirts, and I’m actually a bit surprised by it. It’s pretty much the opposite of Y2K inspired, unlike seemingly every trend these days, so it’s quite refreshing. It’s also very appropriate for Kate Middleton’s classic wardrobe (which is unlikely to contain any low-rise miniskirts). Earlier this week, Middleton opted to wear a full midi skirt from Zara, which is now sold out, unfortunately. She paired the tweed black-and-white skirt with a cream turtleneck and coat and black knee boots. It’s the perfect way to style a swingy skirt during late winter, and once the weather warms up, you can take the same skirt. Just swap the turtleneck for a tank top and the boots for sandals.
