MIDI FOR SHE AND MIDI FOR HE!

My fashion gang and I absolutely love to hurdle around in deep dark alleys to discuss our next target items and come up with ways to try and reposition their stance. We really are just a small tribe of overly enthused yuppies with an affinity for words nobody uses -because they don’t really exist anywhere beyond our bi-monthly summits. Anywho, we decided to take on the ever so graceful midi-hemline… I know, how very brave of us! Tracking back to Christian Dior’s ground-breaking 1947 New Look, the midi definitely ranks comfortably among fashion’s chronic come-back pieces with its brow raising record.  After almost two decades off the market, the poor midi attempted a return met by the swinging 60’s mini mania –yeah, no competish there. In the late 80’s and early 90’s the midi tried to forge presence somewhere within the grunge craze and it ended up in a cult bin rather than trying to define an era –so sad I say. Fast-forward to today’s age of disposable trends and the majestic midi dared to claim its own on as seen on the fall 2011 runways and seemingly finally hit the market the just the perfect time. For the first time in its habitual return, the midi comes in a multitude of shapes, which means that it can be styled to fit almost every woman. My former boss-lady and the ever so fiercely clad Editor of Marie Claire SA; Aspasia Karras is serving chic Parisienne realness with her pleated circle style midi skirt and a side serving of street (see that matching snap-back) in the lead pic. Me? Well, I took to my regular “uprising” and tried to style an atypical piece into my wardrobe. I wore a pair of blood red midi culottes with a Cult Collective top, a PVC vest and a pair of high-tops. How very fetch are these reflective RayBan Aviators from Sunglass Hut!?
