Midi Skirt, Closet Essential


MassimoDutti midi pencil skirt fall 2018

Hi guys

Midi skirts are one of my favorite pieces right now, especially an A-line or a Pencil cut one. They are feminine, chic and classic pieces which won’t go out of style, therefore you can wear them through the years. Here are some of my favorite ones for this season.

Pencil skirt

This is one of the most diverse pieces you can have in your wardrobe. It can be worn as an office attire or you can dress it up for a night out.

Here are some of my favorite midi pencil skirts from this season:

Keep in mind that a midi pencil skirt with a split will give you a longer, more slender silhouette.

A-Line skirt

A-Line midi skirts have the most flattering cut which suite every body-shape. They are classic, elegant and timeless. I believe they are one of the pieces in your closet that are worth investing. Here are some of my favorite A-line skirts in case you want to check them out.

Choose one with a flat wide waistband if you want to emphasize your waist. This is a really good trick for curvy women like me. If you have one without a wide waistband, use a wide belt to create the shape you desire.

Next week I’ll share with you my favorite ways to style a midi pencil/ A-line skirt for fall and winter.

Winter essentials

Hi guys

Here are 7 items that I think every girl needs to upgrade her closet for the winter.

1-  Warm classic coat

Choose a model that you feel comfortable wearing it and pick a neutral color. This way you get to wear it with almost anything.

The coat is from Karen Millen (similar here)

2- Blanket scarf

You can find them at any store, with different color, material and price. I think this is a must have. Since you get to use them during autumn and spring nights I suggest to purchase two scarves with different colors; one dark color and one in a lighter shade.


The left one is from ZARA (similar here), the right one is from Hollister (similar here)

3- Hat/ Beanie

I personally prefer hat, but if you leave in a cold climate, beanie is a must have. Since beanies are popular again, I’m sure you can find something you like. When it comes to hats, honestly I can’t get enough of them. A good shape hat can elevate any outfit immediately.


The hat is from Esprit (here is a similar one on sale), The beanie is from Bickley$Mitchel.

4-Over the knee boots

Over the knee boots are here to stay for a long time, that I’m sure about. So look at it as an investment. Please don’t compromise when it comes to shoes. It’s important to wear shoes that are comfortable and support your feet, knees and back properly. Don’t buy cheep shoes ( ask yourself why they’re so cheap? ). Shoes are investment not only in financial terms, but they are also important regarding your health. Choose wisely.


I bought mine from Zalando and they are on sale right now.

5-Warm leggings/tights

I love this fleece lined leggings from Åhlens. There are other brands like Forever 21 that offer the similar type of leggings. Since this is the only one that I have tried I can’t suggest other ones.



I always wear gloves when it is cold. Proper gloves can be stylish and protect your hands at the same time. I love wearing gloves. I even wear mitten occasionally.


I just want to emphasize that all of these are just suggestions and what I like.  Just remember that confidence is the most important accessory you need. Style is not about the cloth that you are wearing, it’s about how you choose to wear them.
