We probably don’t have to tell you why skirts work so well on women. And we surely not have to explain you why it works so well in summertime. Perhaps so that the warm wind can easily blow across your bare legs and the sun is giving you plenty of vitamine D for free. Here in Holland there’s even a special day, mostly in april, tributed to skirts, as it marks the beginning of summer. But here’s a another reason why we’re talking you into a skirt: it’s one of the season’s biggest trends.

In general there’s a very strong 70s influence, while keeping a modern twist on them (of course, it’s 2015). By far the most fascinating thing to happen is the tea-length skirt, better known as the midi. The reincarnated classic is making it’s comeback on the runway and in the highstreet. For weeks the fashion pact was buzzing over the Marks&Spencer suede midi-skirt and it-girls Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo had been wearing it on their tiny hips already weeks before sale. What was all the fuzz about? It was the ultimate epitome of what spring 2015 is about: midi length(score), slit at the front (even better) and made out of suede (ding ding ding, jackpot!). The best example we can give you for this season. It feels chic, bon ton, hippy and cool at the same time and the slit makes it even easy to walk (or cycle). Plus, if you’re not ready yet for mini skirts, this one’s a good warm-up for the real hot summer days.

On the downside, the midi is a difficult one to style. Key is finding the right balance between different volumes. Don’t get to excited and keep your upper body clean and minimal, wearing a top in the same colour or fabric (denim on denim) or a simple white shirt. Scroll down and take a look at these dazzling women for some tea-length inspiration, and set the date for your own day of skirts. Let’s get cracking ladies, before summer ends.
