The 70's tea- length trend is a hot one right now.
I especially love this trend because it helps channel a lady's inner girly, classy look. It seems very easy to wear but it is actually not. The skirt must be paired with the right top, shoes and jewellery.
A lot of designers from Celine to Prada featured the trend in their Spring 2012 ready-to-wear collections.
It has also been seen on the red carpets at the just concluded awards season. A lot goes into looking just right with a tea-length dress/midi skirt.
1. Consider your height/its length.
The skirt must not be too short or too long. It being either of this could give an uncoordinated look.Your height must be put in consideration for the right fit. You definitely want to show a bit of those gams right?
2. Right pairings.
It's all about looking great with the colors. If it's a bold bottom, make sure to pair with a nude/neutral top and vice versa. Keeping it monochromatic is best for more petite builds.
If it's a full, flowy or pleated skirt, it will be safe to pair with with a very simple, less dramatic top.
My love for it is the illusion it gives to the woman figure. It accentuates the waist and gives more attention to it.
Bridal gowns in midi are a refreshing option. Not really of choice, but it won't hurt to try.
Choose appropriate shoes that won’t “cut you off” at the ankle, making your legs appear shorter. Also, remember to keep the entire look age-appropriate to avoid it feeling 'costumey' or too 'old'.
