Celebrity Looks for Less: Katie Holmes Rocks the Perfect Midi Skirt

A midi skirt is something every woman over the age of 40 should know very well. It is an easy piece to dress up or down and always has a evokes a elegant vibe. Take a page out of Katie Holmes’ book and try out her sophisticated midi skirt look.

Skirts can often be boring and repetitive. To avoid this problem try to go out of your element and purchase one with a fun print like Katie’s. This pleated skirt by RIXO London has a flowy silhouette and mini star print makes it a summer transition to fall staple.

What is perfect about this skirt is it can be worn with different color tops: white, black, a bright color or even another print (say a black and white stripe perhaps?). This black Eileen Fisher silk tee is a safe bet. It is fitted and can be tucked in and still keep a clean line.

Go for a nude pointed toe pump like these by Jimmy Choo. They instantly elongate the leg and will be a go-to for other future ensembles. An optic white bag is one that many woman might be scared to own, but trust me when I say that summer screams for a white bag and the good news is that the color white is carrying over to fall this year too (so you don’t need to pack it away). This Anne Klein leather crossbody has a clean and chic look to it. Wear a pair of small but slightly unusual metal studs like these by Gorjana and wearing a midi skirt look is no longer considered a bore.
