i'm all about the midi.
a midi with pockets = win win.
a midi made of sweater like material soft enough to sleep in = win win win.
i prefer longer length clothing items--dresses, skirts, tops... etc.. therefore, the midi skirt has quickly become one of my fashion favorites. this is an A-line midi skirt (A-line: fitted waist and flared bottom; midi: mid-length a few inches below the knees). as you can see here, a combo of the two equals conservative and professional. you can wear it ANYWHERE. the best part is you never have to worry about it being too short (constantly pulling it down or flashing people) or too long (dragging on the floor).
this skirt is also pleated and pleats are usually tricky to wear in the sense that they tend to accentuate your hip/waist area making them look wider than they really are. regardless, i have tons of pleated items and love them due to the feminine factor. to become friends with pleats, try adding a blazer as i have shown here. another option is to wear it with a sweater (un-tucked) that covers a little of the waist/hip area. i would also suggest a button down where you can fold in the front shirt tails.
