Cracking Tricky Trends: The high waist midi skirt

Skirt by New Lily, silk shirt by Pyrus and shoes by See by Chloe

It’s funny how this fashion trend transports me back to school.  It was either the geography or the religious studies teacher who used to live in a A-line midi skirt back then circa 1977!

Anyway over 40 years later, I almost had a fight over this skirt at a sample sale. Really!  My friend almost discarded it after the first try on, but then changed her mind. Damn.  But thankfully, she is a very good friend and agreed we could ‘share’!  So it’s my week with it and I’m off to celebrate my daughter’s 18th birthday at The Ned for lunch.

I’m not one for skirts generally but I found this style surprisingly flattering as it emphasizes your hips and waist while elongating the body.  And if you don’t fancy this A-line style, there are gorgeous prom skirts, and swirly slinky styles all with the high waist.

The skirt I’m in is by New Lily, a French brand and not available here as it was a sample – but I’ve scouted a few of hot picks from the on-line high-street below!
