This winter there were lots of maxi dresses and skirts, a trend that will continue for some time as it seems. But another style was also shown in many spring collections (as well as in FW 2011-12 runway shows): the midi length. We saw the form fitting midi skirts inspired from the 40’s, the flared style inspired from the 50’s and also the more bohemian 70’s style skirts.
Although many women fear that the midi can be unflattering, I believe that when styled properly and with the right pair of shoes, it can look very chic and feminine.
I rediscovered this 40’s style dress in my closet and I’m happy that I can finally start wearing it again. And I love the fact that it can be worn in many ways and it can also double as a light coat!

(forgive the grey nail polish, which is not at all retro, but I did my nails yesterday and couldn't be bothered to do them again today!)
