The Best Pleated Midi Skirts
It has been a couple of weeks since I have put up a post about some of my favorite trends. This trend has been around a while, or at least the “midi” hem, and I can’t stop wearing it this fall! So, of course, I had to share it with YOU. At first, I wasn’t a fan of the midi hemline. When it came out as “trendy,” I thought that this trend would die pretty quickly. I found that where the hem hit on my legs made the garment look a little dated to me.
I remember looking back at some high fashion images and saw a midi skirt paired with high, rolled-up socks and tennis shoes…this look didn’t exactly make me want to go out and buy that skirt right then and there (haha)! I honestly was bothered that this was now “a thing” and told myself I couldn’t believe that eventually this look would probably grow on me and would be soon jumping on the bandwagon. Does this happen to anyone else? Well, of course, you know that I did – except no rolled socks or tennis shoes!
I Found The One…
It really wasn’t until last year when I was on shopping online on ASOS that I made my first “midi hemline” purchase. I came across this gorgeous velvet midi skirt. I knew I had to have it. At this point, the midi hemline was really growing on me as I saw it styled in dresses and some super chic pants with heels. I truly believe it is the way you style something that makes it work for any season or time period ( within reason ). My style is definitely more feminine. Although I definitely like to keep it casual at times, seeing this midi skirt with a fun pair of heels or booties is what really sold it for me!
I love this skirt SO much, not only because it is super warm, but it is so comfortable, too! I have been sharking ASOS for weeks looking for the same skirt to no avail. So, I have scoured the internet finding the best alternatives all under $100 to share with YOU. Some are velvet, like my beloved skirt, and some are leather and silk! All of these options are sure to keep you in style for seasons to come!

I love this look Kristen! I am trying to find one that looks good on me. I haven’t had any luck. :/
Love, love, love this look! The slight tint of metallic to that skirt is perfect. So cute girl!
