The proper but never prissy cut lends sophistication to petite women and gamine charm to lengthy ladies while cleverly disguising anything remotely resembling cellulite. Luminaries such as Prabal Gurung, Christian Dior, and Tracy Reese debuted darling tea length ensembles during Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion week. Adapting a tea length skirt to your wardrobe is simple! During sweltering Summer months, pair with a crop top and sandals. When Autumn rolls through, just toss some tights and boots underneath the tea length skirt and you’re good to go. Awesome, right??
I am making an argument that tea-length skirts are versatile and a mom’s favorite skirt. Okay, hear me out. They’re flowy which means comfort (almost like yoga pants!), they’re long so you don’t have to worry about flashing the playground, and they look can be worn casually or dressed up. Sounds like the perfect skirt to me!
The tea length skirts are also called the mid length skirts or so called midi skirts are an absolute must have this year for the spring season and following summer. Loved among designer houses like Prada, Dior, Max Mara and Salvatore Ferragamo, the mid-length skirt is the easiest way to achieve the elegant and ladylike look for all occasions.
The trick is to balance the proportions, since the skirt has lots of volume and covers up your legs, you should combine it with a form-fitting top or looser blouse but always tucked in. Also don’t forget to accentuate your waist with a belt. If you are not blessed with the ideal height as so many celebs and models, you should keep in mind that you must wear a heeled shoe with the mid-length skirt. The ideal heels would be the now so popular strappy sandals because they make your legs look longer and leaner,but you can also wear the pointed heels which will also give your legs the same effect.
How are you doing my fellow fashion moguls!! I was so excited when I got this skirt form my tailor because I once wasted a huge material when another tailor failed to grasp the concept and ended up making me a maxi skirt instead. I rocked this tea length Ankara skirt with a chambray blouse to add edge to and the stilettos to add chic and pizzazz. The black clutch was just a distraction I guess… Lemme know your thoughts on the comment box below.
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be a fashion style mogul!
