The mini has been in fashion since the 1960s, but its recent popularity on and off the runways continues to prove the abbreviated, A-line silhouette is still great for transitional weather and a range of body types. As temperatures continue to drop for most of the country (albeit LA is currently experiencing an 80-degree heat wave), we’re looking for fresh ways to wear the beloved staple from now through winter. Here, score our tips for styling the mini skirt with statement footwear, cozy knits and plush textures. Throw on some tights and get out there.
Thoughtful accessories elevate a mundane look into fashion-forward territory. Upgrade the sweater-and-skirt combo with navy blue suede over-the-knee boots and a cute beret.
A textural, faux fur topper is a playful counterpoint to the skirt's houndstooth print. Wear an of-the-moment voluminous top, exposing the cuffs from the jacket and finish with patent leather oxfords and a red leather crossbody for extra polish.
For a night out layer a glamorous velvet bodysuit over a sleek fitted turtleneck. Pair with unique ankle boots and drape an elegant camel-colored coat over the shoulders.
