Mini skirts are making a comeback this year and if you haven’t worn one in ages, try these ways to wear a mini skirt perfectly.
This trend’s been spotted on the runways of Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino and Chanel as well as on the racks at several retailers.
Take your mini skirt to the office
Yes, mini skirts can definitely be professional! Slip on a tailored mini with a pair of stockings for an outfit that’s classic but chic. Add a fitted blouse, heels, jacket and structured handbag to complete the look. Opt for neutral colours like navy, grey and black in simple, block colours for an office-appropriate ensemble.
You can also choose a mini skirt in a plaid, polka dot or a geometric print. Balance the high hemline of your skirt by going for a top with a high-neckline. You can also consider a matching jacket or top for an ’80s-inspired look.
Keeps things casual
Get ready for the weekend by donning a simple, distressed denim mini skirt. Go for a high-waisted option to avoid looking tacky. Pair your mini with a printed top featuring detailing like dramatic sleeves or ruffles for a balanced look.
Complete your outfit with a pair of pointed pumps for a look that’s effortlessly stylish. As an added bonus the pointed shoe will make your legs look longer. If you prefer a sportier ensemble, swap the pumps for trainers instead.
Favour an edgy look
Nothing says edgy quite like a leather-look mini – especially if it’s paired with a top featuring chiffon and lace. In fact, a tailored chiffon blouse will offset the texture of the skirt in a fashion-forward way. You can rock a layered look by adding a knitted cardigan or blazer over it. Complete your outfit with a pair of ankle boots or your favourite statement heels and get ready to turn heads!
