Since its rise in popularity in the 60s, the mini skirt is a piece that has remained on trend season after season, year after year. With a number of styles on offer, from chic A-line silhouettes to bohemian inspired tiered pieces or figure hugging bodycon cuts, there’s a mini skirt to perfectly suit any occasion, season or preference.
To pay homage to one of our favourite pieces and to get you feeling inspired to delve into this timeless trend, we’ve put together some mini skirt outfit ideas for all your upcoming plans.
For an outfit to be deemed festival worthy, it must be comfortable, stylish and easy to wear; and a mini skirt and coordinating top set ticks all the boxes. A coordinating set usually features a top and bottom in the same style, fabric and colour scheme, creating a complete, put together look with minimal effort involved. For the perfect festival fit, look for a mini skirt that isn’t too short (for dancing the night away) and a top that will keep you cool under the warmth of the summer sun. Finish your look with a pair of festival boots – we love western inspired cowboy boots, a fedora style hat and layer up some gold jewels.
Lightweight or breezy fabrics such as crochet, linen and terrycloth that can be thrown on over your bikini are ideal picks when it comes to choosing over swim pieces. For an outfit that will keep you feeling cool and looking stylish on your commute to and from the beach, pair a crochet mini skirt with an oversized linen shirt, a woven beach bag and leather sandals. Keep the shirt unbuttoned to show off your favourite bikini and finish your outfit with a pair of sunglasses and a straw hat to keep you protected from the sun’s rays.
Whether you’re celebrating your own birthday or that of a loved one, it’s the perfect opportunity to step out in a show stopping outfit that features sparkling embellishments, bold prints or standout hues. Style a mini skirt adorned with gemstones and sequins that glitter as you twirl under the light of a disco ball. Let the skirt be the centre of attention and pair it with a simple top and heels or opt for a coordinating set that gives the illusion of a mini dress.
From a catch up with old friends over a delectable array of share plates to a romantic dinner with your other half at a moody restaurant, we love to get dressed up and head out for an evening of good food and great company. Lean into bohemian inspired luxury with a printed tiered mini skirt and flowing blouse ensemble. Elevate your outfit with a pair of heeled mules or ankle boots, a clutch bag and delicate jewels.
A truly versatile and wearable piece, the mini skirt comes in an endless array of styles and can be dressed up or down for almost any occasion, from the ultimate cool girl festival look to a day spent at the beach, a lavish birthday celebration or romantic dinner for two. Look for a piece that pairs well with your favourite wardrobe staples and makes you look and feel gorgeous.
