Seen all over the S/S runway and our Instagram feed - classic closet staple, the mini skirt, is making a strong comeback (as if it ever went out of style). With designers like Miu Miu and Prada showcasing their iterations of the mini skirt to be even more micro, daring and leg-baring, it’s becoming more apparent that mini skirts are THE resident it-girl wardrobe staple.
Knowing how to style your arsenal of mini skirts is key, from those casual summers to nights out in winter and more. But don’t fret, we’re here to help you nail your mini skirt looks and get leggy with it!
The foolproof skirt that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Black mini skirts are timeless, easy to style, and an essential for your capsule wardrobe. Whether your style of choice has a small split, raw hem, or distressing, it will pair perfectly with anything from crop tops, shirts, sweaters - you name it.
Go for an elevated chic look by pairing it with a corset top, chunky boots and a baguette bag or swap out the boots for heels and pop on a blazer for a more dressed up look!

A little underrated, a little risky but a total winner all year round. White mini skirts offer a refreshing take on any outfit and make the perfect base for pops of colour up top. It’s just as versatile as the black and you’ll be loving this one for any occasion!
For a flirty and feminine look, team your white mini with a bright coloured crop top, flat or heeled sandals and a dainty necklace, and you’ll be ready for that sweet day date with your boo!

Land on that best dressed list with a top-and-skirt set! It’s a winning trend this season and more versatile than you would expect. The matching palette creates a strong, streamlined look and leaves room for experimentation with other elements, including prints, colours and mini skirt shapes.
For maximum impact at that party or event, pick a bold, bright print complimented by pared-back accessories - like chunky white sneakers and a shoulder bag that sits at the waist. Or make the most of your set by sometimes swapping out the top half for a neutral crop top.

The higher the temperature, the higher the hem. Having a good rotation of stylish summer-ready minis will save you from sweating up a storm. Our favourite mini for the spring and summer is none other than a light wash denim mini - it’s light, timeless and extremely versatile.

High hemlines with high necklines might just be my personal favourite combo for the season. Now, mini skirts in the winter may sound crazy to many but it’s easy to wear them and still maintain that warmth because layering exists!
If there’s anything more fitting for winter, it’s a tweed mini. It’s thicker than most and if you wear it with a long sleeve top, knee high boots, a mini handbag and a beret, then you’ve got yourself the ultimate it-girl winter look. If that’s not warm enough, pop on some stockings and an oversized coat for an extra toasty finish!
