Megan’s Style Challenge: More Midi Skirts, Please

Megan Midi Skirts

The Frisky’s promotions editor Megan is so cute — and she’s always rockin’ adorbs skirts. The other day, she came in wearing an ikat print skirt that she’d hand-altered because it was too long. Skirts, said Megan, are never the right length. She wanted me to help her find a few midi-length skirts (those are skirts that fall below the knees but above the calf) that could be worn all year long — and she had a budget of $100 per outfit. Good thing personal shopping is pretty much my favorite thing to do. I was able to find her a slew of great items–and all on the cheap, too.

1. ASOS Sleeveless MidiDress with Pleated Skirt and Belt, $54.30
2. Pieces Mille Chunky Chain Short Necklace, $30.55
3. ASOS Aztec Skirt, $61.09
4. Ann Taylor Boatneck Tee, $28
5. Dorothy Perkins Blue Polka Dot Midi Skirt, $44
6. Express Lace Shoulder V-Neck, $16.14
7. Soulmates Draped Lace Jacket, $39.00
8. Trotters Sandals, $25.50

Click through to see how I put ‘em together for around $300. Keep reading »

Why wear a maxi dress during the summer? It’s simple: Shaving your legs every friggin’ day gets so tedious.
