Outfit of the Day | How to Wear a Flare Midi Skirt

I must admit that when I received this skirt in the mail, I wanted to send it back. I asked myself, “Why did you think it was okay to buy this long ‘table-cloth looking’ skirt?”

Long midi flare skirts are really popular right now and I love following trends that I like. New trends help me to develop my personal style even further because they force me to think about what I like and don’t like.

Don’t get me wrong. Long flare skirts aren’t anything new. In fact, they’re quite classic. It’s just that a lot of women are wearing them now, which means now is a good time to buy one as it’s easier to find a nice one.

I bought this is pink flare skirt from asos.com. I love the color, but if you’re thinking it looks heavy, you are correct. It’s the only thing I don’t like it about it. It’s just too much fabric. Sigh.

I spent at least a half an hour, which I probably should have been doing homework, trying to figure out what to wear it with. Anything loose fitting made me look 10 pounds heavier than I am.

I ultimately decided that the only way I could wear this skirt is with a form-fitting top, in this case, a black crop top (hereherehereherehere from forever21.com). It’s the perfect way to show some skin with a skirt this long.

The secret to dressing modestly sexy is to be half covered and half exposed. If you want to wear shorts, wear a full shirt. If you want to wear a bandeau top, wear a long pencil skirt. It gives off a more mature look in my opinion.

To balance the black in outfit, I wore a thin, black belt around the waistline of the skirt.

I also wore my rose gold “Call it Fate” clutch from nastygal.com (similar here) and my “Shoecult Faye Platform Pumps”, also from nastygal.com (similar hereherehere, and here).

For jewelry, I wore a chunky gold chain (old), that I regret wearing, and gold triangle studs from asos.com (similar here).

At the end of the day, I like the outfit. It’s a little different for me, but I think it works. My only wish is that I bought a shorter skirt. In fact, I may hem this up.
