Your Closet Needs Mini Skirts
Be honest with us. When you hear mini skirt, do you think of a tight skirt that barely covers your upper thighs? While that’s certainly one definition of the term, a mini skirt can mean a variety of short skirts with hems that fall above your knees. Brands like Forever 21 make lots of styles and types, ranging from very short to almost knee-length, so you can fill your wardrobe with all variety of short skirts.
Mini skirts make wonderful casual skirts, because you can often find them in fun colors, pretty prints, and denim. Just like with midi skirts, you need to get the right length when you’re wearing a mini skirt. We don’t need to tell you why you don’t want one that’s too short, and one that’s too long will just look like you bought the wrong size. When you hit that sweet spot, you get to show off your legs in a sophisticated way that’s perfect for spring and summer.
How to Wear a Mini Skirt to Work
To keep that short skirt classy, aim for one that hits you mid-thigh if it’s fitted, or a bit lower if it flares. Fabric and print are a big part of what keeps a mini skirt looking sophisticated. Plaids, bold stripes, and polka dots make great skirt patterns. Pair these with your favorite button-down blouse, opaque stockings, and a jacket, and you can wear a mini skirt to work with no problem.
A fitted mini skirt that falls almost to your knees, plus a blazer of the same color, looks like a suit, just minus the uncomfortable pleated pants. Sensible shoes and a blouse with a collar will keep the ensemble appropriate for the workplace.
Mini Skirts for Your Height
Mini skirts are especially great for short women, because they show off your legs, often without looking risque or too short. Short women can create a fabulous silhouette by getting an a-line mini skirt that fits tight at the waist and pairing it with a favorite t-shirt or a long-sleeved shirt. H&M makes lots of basics that fit this concept, and you can find monochromatic or simply patterned pre-loved options at thredUP.
If you’re tall, you don’t have to steer clear of mini skirts and only wear maxi skirts. You’ve got those long legs, so show them off! Finding a skirt long enough for your frame might take some searching, which is why thredUP is the perfect place to look. We stock so many brands and options, you’re bound to find something that works for you. Plus, you avoid having to go into every store in the mall to find shopping success.
