Q: I love this skirt and have a few like it in several colors, but since I am more on the ‘plus size’ of things, I can’t tuck things in. Any advice on how to wear a flary midi without tucking in?
A: Hi! Thanks for your question!
The Midi Skirt is surprisingly versatile and can be worn in so many different fashions, on so many different body types. The length on the beloved Midi is elegant and cool at the same time, and the flared version is particularly forgiving and ladylike.
Nowhere in the “Rulebook” of fashion does it say you absolutely must tuck your top into your midi skirt; it may be the go-to style for some, but somehow wearing your top out is an off-duty, contemporary alternative and a street-style favorite as well. You can wear it with a knit, leather top, sweatshirt, modest crop top (like I did Here) or peplum- all sans the tuck.
What I would strongly suggest is trying it out with a jacket or blazer of your choice. I am a firm believer in the power of a blazer, and all it has to offer to an outfit. If you are willing to try, you can tuck (or untuck) a top into your midi and throw on the jacket to finish the look. A blazer (especially one that nips in at the waist) is a great way to create a clean, feminine silhouette and also helps hide any areas that may not be our favorite. Take a cue from these great fashion forward looks found on the street style front.
