The Miniskirt Trend That Looks Good on Everyone
Summer wardrobe, meet your new throw-on-and-go essential that will have you looking party-ready in a flash. With a shirred- or smocked-top miniskirt, all you have to do is literally pull it on over your hips, throw on anything from a cotton T-shirt for day to a silk cami for night, and you're good to go — no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
I first met the smocked-top skirt when I was in high school, and, while I took a markedly long hiatus from the trend, I've come to rediscover its ultra-feminine ease of wear in the past few seasons and quickly see this Summer as shaping up to be the height of my smocked miniskirt love.
While smocked skirts rule supreme when it comes to their girly flounce, simple styling, and range of prints and colors to choose from, the biggest selling point to me is how flattering the style is on nearly every body type. With the skirt hugging your every curve in a way that still hides any lumps or bumps you might not want to specifically call attention to, you'll feel like the best version of yourself every time you slip one on.
As such, I've amassed a collection of some of my favorites to share with you ahead. Shop them all here, from black-tie-ready florals from Zimmermann to an Isabel Marant style that would look just as good for breakfast with your best friend as it would a Summer date night.
