Legs, it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen you. Our uniform for the last few months may have consisted of jeans, trousers, leggings, or even maxi skirts perfect for transitional dressing, but summer is here, and covered-up hemlines are about to be shaken up. We’re swapping our cold-weather staples for some leg-bearing treasures, and the mini skirt is the perfect place to start.
While some mini skirt styles are for the bold (think: low-rise micro mini skirts), there are many universally wearable and flattering styles, including a-line or wrap cuts and denim or cargo constructions. Plus, there are plenty of options appropriate for the office, late-night dinners, beach days, and more. You won’t even have to abandon your miniskirt if you need to take a hot girl walk or play a game of tennis, thanks to the return of the activewear-friendly mini skort. The best miniskirts also have more year-round appeal than meets the eye. Once fall hits, you can pair them with tights and a trench coat for a street-style-ready look.
So now that we’ve convinced you of its styling prowess and versatility, click on to see some of the best mini skirts (and skorts) — and to scoop them up before summer is in full swing.
