With September comes the arrival of Spring, and when the weather starts getting warmer, transitional dressing becomes our major focus. As our wardrobes call for pieces that are as timeless as adaptable, warm weather separates make ideal investment pieces.
Enter, the midi skirt, easily paired with t-shirts, knits, camis or blouses this classic piece is a wardrobe chameleon.
Here we walk through our four favourite shapes for a seasonal update of the midi skirt:
Slip dresses are always a summer staple, but this season we're adding another staple to our warm weather wardrobe - silky, bias cut midis. The sister style to the languid slip dress, silky midi skirts are perfect for transitional dressing. Termed 'haute-casual' due to the bias cut's ability to shift between casual and formal looks, the bias cut midi can be paired with a simple tee for a casual look, or camis and blouses for dressier appeal. Fitted at the hip and flared gently at the ankle, this Christopher Esber piece works twice as hard, so you don't have to.
If you're attending the Spring races, a structured midi is the perfect alternative to the standard dress. Sculptural and contemporary, the structured midi can be worn with sandals and a cami for a dressed-up day look, or paired with heels to render any outfit evening appropriate. This incredibly flattering Christopher Esber style features trend-driven resin buttons and multiple slits, adding sultry appeal to an otherwise conservative style.
With the single earring trend from 2017 putting into motion an increased infatuation with all things asymmetric, this Marysia Swim number looks on trend without sacrificing style staying power. The contrast trim, feminine ruffle hem and ability to adapt to various outfit styles adds serious versatility to this 'cooler-than-thou' style, making it great for holidays. Elevating your travel 'grams and always looking impossibly polished is easier than ever with this timeless essential.
