Trend Alert: Bell-Shaped Minis

I think a few of you know how I feel about miniskirts; I'm not a huge fan, but I adore mini dresses. Reason being, they just seem either too juniory or too in-your-face for me. I am a long legged gal and I think when it's a mini dress at least you have the dress part to feminize the look. Volume has been a key player in reshaping many clothing items, and I am happy to see it in the mini skirt. These bell-shaped minis are flirty, modern and not overly sexy. I like them worn with a loose tank or tee tucked in and a boxy jacket. This little denim number is too cute - this one alone changed my mini mind. Check out these fab finds.

Arden B Denim Gathered Mini Skirt, $78.

A couple more,

R.E.D. Valentino Animal Print Bubble Mini, $295.

I actually like this style of mini. I think it's a little more grown up.

I really wish that mini's period worked for me. I'm very short and I have huge muscular legs that just don't seem to go very well with this trend (as much as I would like too). Either that or I need a serious confidence boost! Haha!

Definitely a refreshing change to the mini... but then if you're of petite frame, wouldn't a bell shaped mini make you like school-girly?

cute! I love minis but never really wear them for fear of being mistaken for a teenager (I STILL get carded to buy smokes... I don't really mind, but still...)

The reputation of the Mini might have singlehandedly been saved by the "bell."

that's the flirtiest miniskirt I've seen in a long time! It's not slutty or overly sexy, but fun for summer and really adorable!
