Crop Top And Midi Skirt: The Perfect Fall Combo

Fall is upon us and we’re on the hunt for the most body flattering way to get warm! Turns out…crop tops and midi skirts is the hottest way to go about it. Don’t hide yourself under all those layers!

With the a figure hugging crop top, you have the possibility of keeping your arms nice and warm and showing off a little of your midriff at the same time. If you have a long neckline to show off, a high neck crop top would only accentuate it. Or if you feel like dressing up a long sleeve crop top with some necklace bibs or collar chokers, the high neck is definitely the way to go.

Kicking it off with Kim K, the lady who helped inspire this look, we have the simple long sleeve knit sweater crop top and midi skirt combo. Wearing the skirt high waisted allows for the skirt to elongate and accentuate your curves, making those who are short look taller, and those with a leaner figure more of a curvature outline. And even if the torso area is all covered up, it can be clearly seen that the long sleeve crop top is able to accentuate those curves also!

 

 

A little fearful of showing that midriff off in winter? Don’t shy away from your curves! The high waisted skirt adds the perfect parallel hemline to the crop top. You can go as high as you want, leaving half an inch to show some of that all naturale skin of yours, or go all the way and wear the skirt as low as your waistline. The complimenting hemlines go hand in hand. Instead of just wearing a regular knit sweater dress, you can change it up with a matching crop top and midi skirt set! This combo set is much more flattering to a figure and also keeps it a little more interesting.

Here you can see Vanessa Hudgens in a boxy crop top with a matching set high waisted midi skirt. Showing just a little skin keeps the look on the classier side.

 

The fun part is also mixing up the colors and materials! Miranda Kerr, my personal favorite Victoria’s Secret Angel, may be keeping it two tone and classy, but no less eye catching then anyone else! The patterned high waisted midi skirt keeps this simple color from going flat and boring.

Here we can see a side by side comparison of the crop top and midi skirt combo with a dress. Elle Fanning has a tank crop top on, showing lots of skin on the upper part of her body, and pairs it with a ruffled a-line high waisted midi skirt. This look allows for a little more appeal and color contrast because her natural skin is in between the ivory. A none-the-less classy look on both sides, but I have to admit, there’s certainly a bit more allure to the crop top and midi skirt set as opposed to the knee length dress.

Fall 2014 Transitional Pieces

As summer nears its end, we will soon see fall clothing take over the streets. It’s about time that we finally take out our autumn favorites: cardigans, ponchos, socks and boots! A few key skills you will need to polish up on are different ways to transition your summer pieces to fall. Have no fear; Makemechic is here to be your guide. Read on for tips on some simple and creative ways to incorporate summer staples into fall.

Matching Set

For the past few seasons, a complete set seemed to be the outfit du jour. There is nothing that we love more than looking put-together with minimal effort. With the same functionality of a dress or jumpsuit, we can wear each piece of a matching set on its own and really maximize the outfit-making potential for your wardrobe. This trend is definitely becoming more popular this fall.

Crop Tops and Graphic Tees

Many summer favorites like crop tops and graphic shirts can still be useful during this season. Graphic tops can be layered with a denim jacket and skinny jeans or a skirt with tights. The key is to pair the top with darker colors like black, gray and navy. Keep wearing your favorite crop tops throughout the fall with the perfect pairings! Crop tops can be worn under knit sweaters or even paired with a high-waisted skirt, leggings and your favorite ankle boots.

Colored Bottoms

Another popular summer item was colored pants, including bold and beautiful brights as well as interesting prints. One way to keep wearing your favorite colored pants is to pair it with a neutral blazer. The neutral toned jacket will add a touch of sophistication and keep the bright bottoms from overpowering your entire look. This tip also works well for brightly colored tops!

Patterned Dresses

Floral dresses were a staple for summer but can definitely continue to rock your world during the cooler months. Switch out your gladiator sandals for some stylish closed-toe ankle strap pumps and layer a cardi or leather jacket over your dress. Slip on some knee high socks for warmth and style. You can also wear tights underneath your dress to keep your legs warm and to give you a suitable look for fall and winter. Do you have a favorite strapless dress that you want to keep wearing? No worries! Simply wear a neutral t-shirt underneath your strapless dress to put a creative twist on your outfit that is perfect for fall.

From throwing on a cardi or adding some neutral pieces to your ensemble, it’s easy to transition your wardrobe favorites this season. Freshen up your fall look today!

Trending Now: Ponchos

Ponchos Are Back!

You may have noticed a slight chill in the air, signaling the beginning of a new season: fall. With cooler days on the horizon, we need to start looking for appropriate women’s clothing styles that match the weather. This means more layering, boots and beanies! Are you as excited as we are? There’s no better way to start the season then by trying out the hot new comeback trend—ponchos. Ponchos played a key role on the runways of Burberry and Roberto Cavalli. From sophisticated looks to bohemian chic, ponchos will definitely be a must-have item for the chilly days ahead.

Poncho Blanket

If you’re feeling a little lost on how to style your poncho, take note of these stylish celebrities. One cool, low key way to wear the poncho is draped over the shoulders. Cara Delevingne’s styles her poncho coat casually by pairing it with a graphic cropped top, skinny leggings and high top sneakers. This definitely works for a casual night out with friends or your special someone because it will keep you feeling cozy and looking effortlessly chic. Put a sexy twist on the poncho blanket like Olivia Palermo by wearing it with shorts and thigh high boots. This look is still casual but with a note of sophistication. Make your look a classic like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley by pairing your poncho with a simple fedora and classic blue jeans with boots. She looks absolutely flawless with this simple pairing.

While ponchos may be a little difficult to style, they are very practical and great for all body types. They are great for creating a natural look and works wonders as a layering piece. Ponchos come in a multitude of styles, from knitted and chunky to sleek and polished. You can definitely find neutral toned ponchos that will match everything or make a statement with colorful patterns. Start your poncho search in our outerwear section, where you can find everything from cardigans to ponchos and capes. Wrap yourself up in style with ponchos for fall.

2014 Fall Boot Trends

2014 Fall Boot Trends

As the leaves begin to change and fall, and temperatures begin to cool, we will see a gradual shift in our clothing and shoe choices. Popular summer wear like jelly sandals and wedges will soon be stored away and replaced with more fall appropriate shoe wear. To give you an idea of what this includes, Makemechic presents a sneak peek into fall’s coolest boot trends!

Ankle Boots

One of the most classic fall styles include women’s ankle boots. They are the perfect transition for the end of summer to the beginning of winter because they are so easy to match and wear with both dresses and pants. Ankle booties range from casual to professional, with a variety of materials and designs that make this a versatile trend. This season, ankle boots are undergoing a serious transformation, complete with zippers, buckles and other details that we simply adore! Some especially popular designs will include wrap-around straps with buckle accents. You will also see lace up designs, which add a casual edge to the classic ankle boot. Moto-inspired boots add a cool rocker vibe to any outfit. Some ankle boots have cut out designs and chunky heels that look amazing with skinny jeans.

Wedge boots

wedge-boots-makemechic

Another amazing style that will be popular come fall are wedge boots! These babies come in varying heights, from ankle to over the knee. Wedge boots are the perfect fall shoe since they add height and create a feminine silhouette. If you want to give your wardrobe a subtle kick, wedge boots are your go-to shoe. Choose a style that pops, whether it includes a bright tone or fringe detailing. For a more traditional look, you can’t go wrong with neutral tones like black and nude. They will present a polished and professional appearance.

Lug sole boots

lug-sole-shoes-makemechic

Are you into an edgier shoe that makes a strong statement? Lug sole shoes are no longer reserved for menswear in hiking and construction sites. These boots are characterized by heavy treading on the outer sole of the shoe, and often have platforms and thick heels. Lug soles provide greater traction and stability that is perfect for everyday comfort and wear. Complement these masculine styled shoes with distressed denim jeans or leggings for a casual look.
