The One Piece You Need To Nail Transitional Dressing


In the heat, hems rise high, but now that summer’s winding down, we’re thankful that the multitasking miniskirt has the power to both lift a warm-weather look and transition into cooler temps (it was a major trend on the fall runways in fact). Cut in a ladylike A-line, the abbreviated staple is sleek and flatters a host of body shapes. Here, we’ve styled four fresh mini looks—from colorful ’70s patchwork to polished, sporty suede. Rock them now, then layer up for the season ahead. Just add tights and a coat when the chill sets in.
