Consider your height. If you are short, stick to a skirt that hits just above or below the knee. For taller ladies, any length will do so long as it doesn't go below your ankles . Length is everything! You can totally ruin the midi look if your skirt is just 2 inches too long or too short. Ideally, you want a midi to hit mid shin, where you leg begins to thin out. If a skirt hits at the thicker part of you leg, it will make you look stalky.
The color scheme for this outfit is monochromatic. This means that the entire outfit is composed of one color, which in this case is black. Typically when someone wears black, it has a sliming affect on the body. Also, black tends to show power. With an all black, monochromatic color scheme this outfit has a calming affect because black is very neutral whereas a color like red draws attention.
