walking on the wild side | midi skirts are on trend

pleated midi skirts are on-trend this year.  and yes, it’s OK for ladies of a certain age to be on trend from time-to-time.  as we get older, it’s easy to adopt the mindset that we’re above trends; that because they’re fleeting and passing they’re not worth the time or investment.  

that may be true, at least in part, but sometimes it’s good to get out of our fashion comfort zone and break some self-imposed style rules.  today, i’ve (re-)styled for you a pleated midi skirt i first showcased this fall.  i want to highlight its seasonal versatility and give you a variety of alternatives to potentially integrate into your wardrobe.  

midi skirts are on-trend 

for those of you that follow this blog regularly, you might remember today’s skirt .  i first debuted it in my fall haul with JCPenny.  there, i paired it with a silk blouse.  today, i’ve kept the skirt but swapped out the blouse for a cashmere sweater.  as you all know, i’m a big believer in outfit reusability, flexibility and ease:  we shouldn’t have to invest in entire new wardrobes season-to-season.  it’s so easy to throw on a midi skirt and sweater and walk out the door looking pulled together at a moment’s notice.

she says, “hey baby, take a walk on the wild side”

i’ve got Lou Reed stuck in my head today.  you’d think it’d be a Christmas carol, but no.  it’s Walk on the Wild Side.  could be a lot, lot worse.

have a song stuck in your head this week? let me know in the comments below.

that’s a (cashmere sweater) wrap!  

i’ve been all about the cashmere this winter.  i’ve given you several options over the past few weeks, and today’s no exception.  i’ve got a beautiful one from Nordstrom (and here) and a similar from Ann Taylor. for cooler weather (or if you don’t want any skin showing), couple today’s midi skirt with a pair of knee-highs and you’ll be taking a walk on the wild side too.

    Hi Beth, I enjoyed this post seeing how you restyled your skirt. I bought a midi animal print late summer and wore it with a black silk camisole in the early fall (I live in southwest Florida). After seeing your post, I’m thinking about wearing it with a leather top or a cotton cashmere long sleeve sweater.
    I’ve been following your blog for 3 1/2 years and enjoy your posts. My favorite is probably Fridays with Oscar.

    Hi Beth, lovely outfit, I’m not a pleated skirt fan but I love the print. I’ve had a song stuck in my head for two days now it’s Hakuna matata from the film The Lion King xoxo

    OK, now that’s a classic–the outfit and the tunes! I love Lou Reed. Now I’ll be humming this all night long, an earworm I’m ok with. I’ve been getting in the holiday spirit and have been watching Bobby McFerrin do this: I love his spirit:

    This skirt looks great on you – wonderful outfit. As a petite gal the longer mid length skirts don’t work for me, but I do love the occasional hit of animal print in my wardrobe. I own a couple of cute tops and a cardigan with animal prints. They really are a classic look especially when worn with some great black slacks. I know what you mean – even as we get up there in age we still need to keep up with the trends when done in an age appropriate way. My next purchase is a moto jacket!

    True that midi skirts are on trend, but in my humble opinion, they’re also a classic. I love wearing a midi with boots in the winter. Warm and stylish.

    Lol we are outfit mirror-flips today: I’m wearing a leopard sweater with black skinny jeans and new black flats I just got last night in the Nordstrom sale!

    And I have a black pleated I-think-midi skirt with a 4 or so inch band of velvet at the bottom of it on its way across the Atlantic, courtesy of my mam who is in the UK and likes to shop at Marks and Spencer.

    So I’m going to say I’m loving this outfit!
