Style for Style: How To Wear...Mini Skirts

We girls need to be careful when it comes to wearing mini skirts. Actually, in general we need to be careful when wearing any item of clothing that reveals a large part of our body. I cringe when I see girls wearing mini skirts wrong; a mini can be classy when worn correctly. Here are some tips to look cool in a mini:

  • Rule of thumb: keep it sleek by counteracting its inherent sexiness with some not quite as sexy items
  • On top, choose something more tame than a skintight tank or revealing blouse - wear a frilly blouse or a loose cami with a cool blazer.
  • Footwear should be minimal. I love minis with flats but if you need some height keep the heels chunky, as seen here at Derek Lam's Spring/Summer collection.
  • As for Fall footwear, same rule applies, and whether you wear a mini with tights or not, a flat knee boot or wedge boots are the perfect accompaniment.
