I never wear skirts as occasional wear, as I guess women are pre-programed to attend weddings, birthdays and any excuse for a party in either a flamboyant day dress or slinky evening LBD. But skirts deserve far more credit and respect for their service to fashion, as this beautiful lux midi from Chi Chi London is a total show stealer.
I’m feeling very Sex In The City in this gorgeous tulip embroidered midi skirt which finishes just below my knee and makes me want to courtesy and skip off into the hills. It has such an elegance and beauty capturing the classic style of the 50’s whilst being bang on trend with it’s floral detailing.
The skirt is fully lined and synches in at the waist before kicking out at the hips to create a perfect hourglass figure, with a concealed back zip allowing you to slink in and out as required without the struggle of catching heels on the beautiful fabric. Being hand wash only this isn’t suitable for the washing machine, tumble dryer or dry cleaners, but the Cinderella moment I had when I put it on was totally worth the extra TLC.
Here I’ve teamed my skirt with a knitted white vest and tousled hair with a rose lip, which screams for a faux fur shrug and statement chronograph watch and clutch to take it to all out evening glam. Priced at an incredible £39.99 from Chi Chi London this is the perfect party staple for the summer.
