A perfect addition to your summertime style, Hepburn’s signature midi skirt is a swishy-sweet piece of clothing that will leave you looking smart and fun.
With its forgiving shape and habit of accentuating the waist, this skirt is flattering on just about anyone. The midi skirt, as you might guess, ends about halfway up the calf—it’s neither short, nor does it trail the ground, allowing for ease, comfort, and beauty.
Seen in Hepburn’s film, Roman Holiday, as well as in the actress’s personal life, the simple, white midi skirt has a popularity which endures today, largely because of her influence.
If you want to go a little more contemporary with this piece of clothing, choose unexpected prints and hues for a more modern look that still captures that Hepburn feel. Find what works for you, but keep the dress, itself, simple—avoid too many buckles or layers.
