Anyone who was anyone was in attendance at the Coachella Festival last weekend and what has that got to do with midi skirts you ask yourself? Because all the A List celebrities were wearing them that’s why! I had my beady fashionista eye on what was hot and what was not and I can tell you that the most gorgeous ladies were wearing midi skirts with gladiator sandals, gold accessories, biker boots and an array of tops from boyfriends shirts to skinny rib tees.
These are not the old-fashioned midi skirts everyone was wearing in the early 80’s however, these sit just under the knee, not at the calf and are more of a full swing skirt than a longer version of a pencil skirt. To show you what I mean, I’ve handpicked a few so that you can exactly replicate the festival look, and create your very own, using whatever accessories you can lay your hands to. Check these out on ASOS!
