Red Midi Skirt







Midi skirts seem most appropriate during the Fall/Winter season, although I'm fairly keen to mini skirts or flouncy A-line skirts.  However, I feel so feminine and radiant in this bright red midi skirt from Express.  I'm a firm believer in dressing for your body type, and for some reason, midi skirts have never really been too flattering on my shorter-framed body until I discovered ways to alter it for a more appealing look (without looking like an oompa loompa).  Whenever I'm wearing a skirt or dress that hits beneath the knees, I offset it with a light colored crop top to elongate the torso and high heels of at least 4 inches or taller.  A neutral heel, such as nude or metallic, helps lengthen the appearance of legs as well.  There you have it - my tricks for hiding my short height.  

What I'm rocking:
Crop top ℅ Missguided
Skirt by Express
Bracelet ℅ Pandora
Heels by ALDO
