Mid Century Skirts

7.31.2013 WRITTEN BY Noah How to Wear, Style Guide, T+P Blog Central

For the past year, fashion designers have decided to keep hem-lines long, and they aren’t about to shorten them anytime soon.  From Lanvin and Prada, to Chanel, we’ve been seeing knee length skirts with a lot more volume coming down the runway this fall 2013 season. Dubbed the “mid century skirt”, due to its popularity in the 50’s, actresses such as Kate Bosworth have been sporting this lady like trend on the red carpet and it looks fabulous.

Other celebrities such as Eva Mendes, Dita Von Teese and Jessica Alba, are sporting pretty floral prints, making their flowy, mid-century numbers even more feminine.

The good news about this 50’s comeback? It flatters everyone! Try sporting yours with a soft cotton Tee, and add a leather biker jacket a la Jessica Alba to add a bit of edge to this uber feminine style. Turn up the cuffs on your leather jacket and add an armful of bangles for a finishing touch.
