The trend is on for midi skirts and I love it. Unfortunately, I don’t have inches of legs to carry the look effortlessly. I’m a long-bodied-short-legged girl, and when you mix that up with my grand height of five foot one, it’s inevitable that I look disproportionate. But somehow, I found a way to incorporate the midi skirt look into my outfit. So, how should short girls wear midi skirts?
For the first time in my life, I didn’t wear any non-branded items for my outfit of the day. No cheap clothes from Argyle Centre in Mong Kok or from some random street market. No incidents of threads coming undone as soon as I move a muscle because they’re so cheaply made. Nope, none of that.
Don’t worry, though. I haven’t done a 180 towards high-end goods. Yo’ girl don’t have no money fo’ that.
I love my new off-white bomber jacket from Lowry’s Farm Collectpoint – somewhere I usually don’t frequent because I’m not a fan of Japanese fashion, but wow was I delighted when I discovered this gem! Underneath, I have on a basic long-sleeve grey top from Cotton On matched with a long, dark grey skirt from Muji. Yep, you can buy clothes in Muji! Can’t say I can pull off the whole “serene” look though, ha. Of course, I gotta finish off the look with my only pair of white trainers, my Nike Air Force 1. And lastly, my Fjällräven Kanken backpack proved to be a good choice to carry around my laptop and books because I was headed to school.
After class, I went to my first Cultural Journalism Campus meeting. The next day, I wore the same outfit because I loved it so much for tea with Jason at Opendoor Café + Courtyard in Sai Ying Pun.
And this, is how I recommend other short girls wear midi skirts.
