Mini skirts have been a staple since the 60s, and they aren’t going anywhere. High street brands to high-end designers have been developing their take on the mini skirt for years, and you’re guaranteed to have a couple in your wardrobe! No matter the material or the colour, styling a mini skirt can be a breeze when you know what you’re doing. Here are 5 things you need to know about mini skirts, including how to style them for any occasion.
1. Mini Skirts Can Be Revealing
The clue is in the name when it comes to mini skirts. They are mini! If you’re dressing for an occasion where you’re likely to be photographed, and you don’t want to flash anybody, dress with skirt length in mind. Thick tights make a life-saving accessory with your shortest mini skirts since they’ll leave you feeling less exposed at family get-togethers. Pop on a boot with your mini skirt and your tights, and you’ve got a stylish going-out look with no effort!
2. Mini Skirts Suit Most Tops
The versatility of the mini skirt is part of what has kept it around for decades. You can pair your mini skirt with most styles of top! Of course, printed mini skirts suit plain tops, and plain mini skirts can be jazzed up with a bold vest or long-sleeved tee. Our Octavia black V-neck long-sleeve at Style Cheat is figure-hugging enough to suit the tightest of mini skirts while staying comfortable. It’s easy to pair with any colour or print so that you can throw together an outfit in the blink of an eye.
3. Mini Skirts Can Be High Waisted
You may have believed that mini skirts have to be ridiculously short from their waistband to their bottom until now. In actuality, what makes a mini skirt is where it ends before your knee so that it can be high waisted and low waisted just like any other skirt. High waisted mini skirts are especially flattering since they accentuate the smallest part of your waist and contribute to the appearance of an hourglass figure. Who doesn’t want that?
4. Mini Skirts Can Be Worn Casually
You don’t need to be heading for a night on the town when you pop on a mini skirt. While they make an incredible dressy outfit, with a denim jacket and trainers, a mini skirt can be a trendy look for a day in the city. With a laidback mini skirt look, you’ll be photogenic no matter where you head, so you’re ready to get some perfect Instagrams. At the same time, you’re day drinking in cocktail bars. Give our Owen light-wash blue oversized denim jacket a try, and watch how quickly your mini skirt transforms from night-out into day-ready.
5. Mini Skirts Are A Summer Staple
Who would’ve guessed a short skirt would be the ideal summer outfit? Okay, this last point shouldn’t come as a surprise. Mini-skirts show off a serious amount of leg, but that leaves plenty of room for the breeze to keep you cool on even the hottest of summer days. You’re also guaranteed to achieve a healthy summer glow on your legs if they’re exposed to the sunshine. So, leave the maxi skirts in your wardrobe until the evening! Pop on some flip-flops with your bare legs, and you’re ready for the iced coffee run.
