INSPIRATION: HOW TO STYLE MIDI SKIRTS, PLEATS

 Hey beautiful people! 
How's everybody doing? 
As an advocate for modest and comfortable fashion I tend to gravitate towards longer and less fitted pieces hence my obsession with midi skirts. Especially skater and pleated skirts.

I like the no stress factor with skater skirts simply because they are flattering on most body types, you don't have to worry about panty lines, it offers you comfort and it can easily be taken from work, to church to every day errands.

And we all know pleats are one of the hottest trends this season. Hence looking back at my style posts, I thought I'd do a compilation of some of my favourite ways that I've rocked this staple.

1. Monochromatic

I love the idea of working with neutral colours mostly. And whether sticking to one colour palette or pairing black and white together, we all know it never fails.

2. Mixed prints
For those brave enough, mixing prints is one way to spice up what would be an otherwise predictable or boring piece. If you're still unsure of how to, then  my guide on mixing prints has got you covered.

3. Ankara/African prints
Now while it might be true that we Africans borrowed Ankara prints from the Dutch, it is also true that we have taken it over and we sure do own it now. I love making skater skirts with Ankara, stay tuned for a basic tutorial.

Prints just make everything more fun and interesting so rather then stick to plain skirts why not opt for printed ones.

5. Sneaker up
Last but not least, one of my favourite ways to style midi skirts especially for everyday errands is with sneakers. I feel like opting for sneakers in most outfits instantly makes one look out of the box stylish and trendy, what do you think? 


What is one closet staple that your obsessed with? How do you like to style your midi skirts/skater skirts? What was you're favourite look?

It's amazing how modest can also be chic and sexy. I love outfit 2,3,4

Modest can definitely be sexy too. Thank you

i like to think of women of God as dressing chic and Godly. I am not a big fan of describing our style as "sexy", as it seems to conform to worldly vanity...

but i like how you style these skirts. I find midi Skater and A-line skirts quite tricky to style. so I'll definitely be borrowing some ideas from you.

PS: Love your pink outfit!

Sarah Enuwa Audu said...

I actually see what you mean Ada, I've never actually thought of it that way but you do have a point. The use of the term sexy might convey the wrong message as a person or lady dressing to seduce of entice the opposite sex. Thank you so much for stopping by, and midi skaters are definitely easy to style, I hope you found this helpful.
