Still a nip in the air? Hold off on the crop tops for now and pair a tweed skirt with a graphic T-shirt and a printed jacket. For extra fashion credit, choose contrasting patterns that are tied together with one color. A micro bag and two-tone shoes add to the pretty polish.
Shiny and Stripes
Make a red vinyl miniskirt work for day by styling it with a roomy striped button-down and sneakers. Those who are always cold (and who cannot get enough stripes) can layer a contrasting top underneath the blouse. For extra color, finish with a shocking pink lipstick.
Show Those Spots
Master trans-seasonal dressing and get in on this season's massive animal print trend by balancing exposed legs with a long leopard print coat. On brisk days, choose a fluffy topper like this. When it's warmer out, prevent overheating with a cotton jacket. Either way, a black T-shirt and coordinating patent miniskirt will work.
Show some leg — or not — with statement footwear. Bring a simple white T-shirt and a trusty denim miniskirt into 2018 with patterned over-the-knee boots and a fanny pack that's angled so the bag sits over one hip.
Introducing the latest comfortable-yet-cool weekend look. Style a roomy sweatshirt with a lightweight printed skirt. Choose a skirt that hits a few inches below the hemline of the sweater. The key is for the skirt to peek out. No one wants to look like they forgot pants. Colorful grandpa sneakers and sunglasses round out the low-key vibe.
When wearing a plaid mini, it's easy to channel Cher Horowitz. Instead of always pairing the skirt with a coordinating blazer, try teaming the skirt with a cozy cable knit sweater. On warmer days, push up the sleeves, put on some cool shades and wear the highest platform sandals in your closet. Cher would approve.
Different Double Denim
This is not the typical denim shirt and jeans combination. Switch things up with an oversized jean jacket and denim skirt — if they feature contrasting fabrics, even better. Complete the ensemble with this season's must-have top, the bandeau. Embellished black ankle boots up the Western mood without veering into costume territory.
A yellow miniskirt may be tiny, but it still packs a major punch. Ensure all eyes are on you by styling the sunny skirt with a sequined jacket. It's a look that will go from day to night when worn with block heels.
Move over millennial pink. For Spring 2018, hot pink is taking over. Shocking pink coordinates will definitely get you noticed, especially if they're a knit crop top and skirt. Take things to the next level like fashionista Chiara Ferragni by topping the look with a fringed jacket. Don't forget the hot pink heels.
Sweatshirts and Skirts
Keep that logomania sweatshirt in rotation in the warmer weather by pairing it with a leg-revealing miniskirt. A skirt with a tulip hem shows more skin and adds a feminine finish. A trendy plaid blazer worn draped over the shoulders is always chic.
Pastels not your cup of tea? Keep things timelessly chic with a black top and skirt, but add some interest via a mini with a high-shine textured finish. Break out of the monochromatic color palette by tucking a white bag under your arm and wearing printed heels.
Tee Plus Skirt
A graphic T-shirt plus a thigh-skimming skirt is a fail-safe combination. Bring out the edgy vibes with cut-out biker boots, a chain-strap bag and statement sunglasses.
The idea that we cannot wear sneakers with suits unless we're pounding the pavement on the way to work is dated. Sneakers add a cool-girl edge to a skirt suit and blouse. Shrug off corporate connotations with a boyfriend blazer and teeny-tiny skirt.
A miniskirt is a surprisingly versatile piece, so don't be afraid to experiment with different shapes and silhouettes. Some people may not expect a longline tweed blazer, black leather skirt and tall glitter boots to work, but this outfit proves they do.
A lightweight sweater can be a savior in spring when it's too hot to wear a coat but too cold to wear just a T-shirt. Pair a bright white sweater with a check mini and sunglasses for a preppy and appropriate outfit. Trendy V-cut shoes help to further extend the lines of the legs, even if they're flats.
Spring is when we start adding color back into our wardrobes. Go for brights with a loud patent miniskirt and printed sweater. A pastel bag plays off the saturated tones.
Show Some Skin
If we're exposing our gams, we typically balance it out with a more modest top. It's by no means a must do. Expose a bit of skin up top with a long-sleeve cropped sweatshirt. The long sleeves balance the exposed abs. Those still feeling naked can fold a scarf in half and tie it over the strap of their crossbody bag. It provides a little extra coverage and it's a genius styling trick.
Reveal and Conceal
Leave it to Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert to come up with a brilliant twist on a jean miniskirt. Shrug on a longline jacket that extends beyond the hem of the skirt, but leave some of the bottom buttons undone to reveal a hint of denim fabric.
Long and Short of It
The cardigan has made a comeback. Try a longline cardigan with a short miniskirt for an interesting play on proportions. Keep things cohesive with colors. We like this black and white combination.
Think About Footwear
Stop trying to stuff pants into over-the-knee boots. Pair the footwear with a coordinating shirt and miniskirt that hits a few inches higher than the top of the boots. A chunky white necklace and structured bag enhance the preppy feel.
Legs will almost always be the focal point when wearing a mini, but they don't have to be the only one. Balance a high hemline with a sharp-shouldered jacket. Make more of a statement with a printed T-shirt that clashes with the design in the skirt. Red ankle boots add more rock 'n' roll vibes.
If you weren’t one of the daring fashionistas who embraced the return of the miniskirt in January (with some thermal tights and clever weather styling hacks), it’s probably about now that you’re looking to hang up jeans and wool trousers and put on something lighter, less restrictive and might we even say breezy. The warmer weather calls for shorter hemlines and that’s where the miniskirt comes in.
Wearing a miniskirt after months of being stuck in pants thick enough to ward off frostbite is definitely freeing but it can sometimes make us lazy. Now that we no longer have to layer, our dressing can become rather formulaic. It can be easy to fall into the habit of pairing a miniskirt with a T-shirt or tank top and calling it a day. Done often enough, it can start to feel like we’re wearing a uniform, albeit a rather stylish one.
Some people buy new skirts to reinvigorate their look only to fall into the same styling habits. Save the cash and instead focus on new ways to rework the miniskirts already in your wardrobe. (If you still want to buy some of this season’s styles, we won’t blame you.) Unsure where to begin? Here are 22 street style-approved miniskirt outfit ideas to keep yours looking fresh all spring and summer.
