Mini skirts: trends
Since London designer Mary Quant invented them in the 60s, the mini skirt has lost none of its culty character. Less scandalous but still with plenty of eye-catcher potential, this little fashion icon continues to flatter the legs of its wearers to this day. The mini skirt look is especially modern with trendy tops, XL cardigans and flat boots.
What to wear with mini skirts
Short yes, too sexy no. Styling is half the fun with mini skirts. Ultra-feminine tulip and wrap skirts or casual leather, denim and cargo skirts that end high above the knee are now being paired with “textile-heavy” tops. Because the most important styling rule for mini skirt fans is: more is more. The XL décolleté is giving way to oversized knitted jumpers and in place of shoulder-free look we are seeing classic polo neck jumpers.
Exclusive fashion tip
If the skirt is short, feel free to try a top with a longer cut. This makes a slightly fitted long blazer the perfect styling partner for the mini skirt. Don’t forget: the mini skirt should not be too short – you should always be able to see a hand’s breadth of skirt under your top or jacket. This trendy layered look can also be made winter-ready with a pair of narrow boots with small heels and a cashmere polo neck jumper.
