Paris Hilton said it best, ‘skirts should be the size of a belt… life’s short, take risks.’ With an iconic quote like that in existence, there really is no real need for a lengthy introduction on the piece of garment but we’ll give it to you anyway. The mini skirt has long been a symbol of liberation and empowerment and remains an unchanging classic in everyone’s wardrobes. No matter your body type, age, or personal preferences, a mini skirt provides you endless opportunities for self-expression and creativity (and also looks damn good). From streetwear to edgy elegance, the mini skirt can do it all and we’re here to guide you through all the styling options you need for 2023.
We get it, you’re the one to look stylish and effortless on every occasion. Not too much work, but enough to look great and casual. The thing about casual is, you can wear it to anything and when you combine it with chic, you can wear it to anything. Start by pairing a denim mini skirt (a fave) with a graphic t-shirt and most importantly, sneakers. Layer with a denim jacket for a stylish and laid-back vibe. Complete the look with a crossbody bag and oversized sunglasses.
Not everyone can pull off sophisticated glam outfits, but if you’re one of those who can, this is for you. While not usually a part of sophisticated outfits, mini skirts definitely belong in every glam look. So, when you combine the two, you’ll probably need a mini skirt that fits the bill and a faux fur mini skirt is the solution you’re looking for, a high-waisted one at that. Pair it with a black lace blouse or a satin camisole and add a tailored blazer in a contrasting color. Top it all off with black heels and statement earrings.
BOHO INSPIRED BEAUTY
It’s summer so if anything gets to make a bold comeback, it’s boho outfits with a pinch of mini skirt in it. Mini skirts are most popular in denim and leather variations, but we’re telling you to keep those aside for this one. Get yourself a floral printed mini skirt, preferably with a flowy silhouette, and pair it with a loose-fitting black blouse or crop top. Add a wide-brimmed hat, ankle boots, and layered necklaces for the ultimate bohemian look.
SPORTY STREET STYLE
2023 is the year of streetwear, well, to be honest, streetwear has been the most popular style of clothing for a few years now and you probably have Bella Hadid and her stellar street fashion to thank for this trend. And a sporty athleisure-inspired look combined with a street look? It’s a hit. You can get this look with a black athletic-inspired mini skirt with side stripes. Pair it with a black or white cropped sweatshirt and sneakers and accessorize with a baseball cap, a backpack, and hoop earrings for a sporty yet fashionable ensemble.
With the newfound obsession with elegant wear in 2023, you would not be amiss to jump on that particular train and revamp your wardrobe. But then again, in a world that banks on everchanging fashion trends, elegance will never really be one. It’s timeless like it’s meant to be. Whether attending a formal event or simply seeking to elevate your everyday look, elegant wear holds the power to transform not only your appearance but also your entire demeanor. But we get it if you want an effortless elegant outfit because you’re not going to a classy event every day, but you can look close to it without overdoing it and we’ve got the perfect outfit for that too. Wear a black high-waist pleated mini skirt and pair it with a fitted turtleneck top or button-down blouse. Add a statement belt to cinch the waist and elevate the outfit. Top off the look with a pair of ankle boots or pumps and a clutch bag.
If you know anything about the fashion cycle and you observe the ongoing fashion trends at least a little bit, you’d know we’re going through a major reintroduction of the ’90s fashion trends. All that baby tee, slip dress, and frosty makeup that’s taken over the internet? The 90s did it first. Now get the retro glam look with a mini skirt by wearing a black suede or velvet mini skirt with a high-waisted silhouette. Pair it with a tucked-in fitted turtleneck in a contrasting color like mustard or burgundy. Add knee-high boots in a complementary shade and accessorize with oversized sunglasses and a statement belt.
Who doesn’t want to look cool? We all want that effortless, ‘oh-yeah-I-wake-up-looking-like-this’ look, and the aforementioned look to be gorgeous and groovy enough to turn some heads. Think Cindy Kimberly and Bella Hadid (shocker). Walk the streets and channel your inner cool diva with a black denim skirt with distressed details, paired with a graphic T-shirt and a black leather skirt. Complete the look with black ankle boots, a crossbody bag, and layered necklaces.
Keeping everything else aside, it’s summer. So above all, you’re looking for a summer look that can get you looking reading for all that sunshine (and sunburns, probably). Get it with a black floral printed or patterned mini skirt in a lightweight fabric and pair it with a sleeveless cropped top in vibrant color. Add strappy sandals, a woven tote bag, and oversized sunglasses for the perfect chic summer look.
Going through the 90s fashion archives is a guilty pleasure of ours. The evening glamour is just out of this world. It had the perfect amount of flair and understated elegance as well as dramatic silhouettes and necklines to die for. Channel your inner 90s supermodel looks with an evening wear-inspired outfit by pairing a black sequined or metallic skirt with a black fitted top or silky blouse. Add high heels in a metallic nude shade and accessorize with statement earrings and a clutch bag.
Yes, we are obsessed with clueless, and yes, we will defend preppy outfits to the very end. Plaid is a national phenomenon, still, thanks to Cher and her iconic first-day-of-school outfit. Get the ultimate preppy outfit by combining a mini skirt (seriously, what’s more preppy than a mini skirt?), which should obviously be plaid (or pleated is good). Pair it with a crisp white button-down shirt and a black blazer. Add loafers or oxford shoes, a structured handbag, and pearl accessories for a polished and preppy ensemble.
