Have you ever watched Ladette to Lady, a reality show that followed a group of ladettes, who were given an old-fashioned five-week course in learning how to become a 'lady'?
Although the show hasn't been on air for years, I suddenly thought about it when I shot these outfit photos.
I don't know whether it's a midi skirt or a blouse with the beaded collar but there is something about this look that makes me feel like a 'lady'.
Midi skirts can be tricky to pull off hence I don't wear them too often. As the name suggests, a true midi, like the one I'm wearing today, should ideally hit around mid calf. However, if you feel that this is not the most flattering place for a skirt to hit, you can opt for a slightly shorter length as seen here or here.
The only key thing to remember is to team your skirt with a fitted, tucked or cropped top to define the waist and make the volume on the bottom work. And viola, you can now look like a lady and shine like a star.
