So yesterday, a couple of us were talking about celebrities, plastic surgery and what we’d like to change about ourselves, you know, the usual, and the topic landed on Kangana Ranaut. We all agreed on how much we love her, though for different reasons, and I heard myself say, “I like her dressing sense.” Someone nodded, someone disagreed, you know the works, but since I was relatively free and the Google Search button was looking at me invitingly, I typed in, “Kangana Airport style” and sure enough a couple of images popped up – looks like others had searched for it as well. And I was astonished at how much I love the way she dresses – which is a lot I can say for celebs – Except Sonam Kapoor – I love how she dresses.
Anyway, so I pulled out 9 looks of Kangana’s that i absolutely adore and I was going to post them all, but then it struck me, “What if I do a bit of research and help people get the look?”
So, here’s the first look I have created. Hope you love it.
Say hello to the midi skirt. Already a few seasons old, the trend is yet to gain mass acceptance amongst self-proclaimed fashionistas and the youth. And it’s kind of surprising as Indian celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and gang have already worn the midi on numerous occasions.
Although I won’t recommend wearing it the way these gorgeous women have (read the top they’ve chosen to pair with the skirt), this example tells you that the midi skirt is flattering. And very much in vogue.
Then why are we still shying away from it?
Chances are, it’s our obsession with mini skirts and all things short that beat the midi out of the race, every time we go shopping.
And maybe because we can never understand what top will go with the midi skirt.
Check out how these women are pulling off the midi. See, how they’ve paired it with everything from sweaters, bralets and camisoles to even a collared shirt!

Still not sure? Buy a basic tank top from Forever 21 and team it up with your midi skirt. Accessorise with a simple neckpiece like this or this. .
Alternatively, you can choose to go modest with a top like this.
Or you could choose to wear a well fitted denim top with your midi. Like this.
Or you could wear it with a simple check top. Like this.
