Although most fashion experts will argue that it is still maxi skirt season, not all of us are tall skinny models who can pull those off. They may look sexy on a certain body type, but most mere mortals in them look like they’re wearing potato sacks. This is precisely why we have decided to pay another visit to the mini skirt department to see what’s cooking over there. So if you want to meet people online and amaze them, check out these types of mini skirts you have to try this summer!
#1: The High Waisted Mini Skirt
It is the high waisted mini skirt that rules the runways and streets of fashion capitals this summer. Every fashionista has at least one high waisted mini skirt in her closet that is tight enough to show off her tush she’s been working on at the gym since February. You can find them at really affordable prices that won’t set you back more than a few trips to Starbucks, but if you’d like to splurge, the high-end retailers always have your back. Since the high waisted mini skirt has been in style for a few seasons now, it won’t be tricky to find a top that is just light and tight enough that it can be comfortably tucked in. Pair with cute wedges or everyday flats and statement jewelry, and turn more than a few heads when you hit the town.
#2: The Pleated Skirt
The pleated skirt made a comeback several years ago, and from the looks of things, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. You’ll see pleated skirts of all lengths, but the uber cute ones are those that are above the knee. If you’re not crazy about the idea of wearing a high waisted skirt that shows off the midsection that so many of us are desperately trying to hide, a mini pleated skirt is the perfect choice for you. Pair it with a cute tank top that is tight and short enough that it doesn’t hide the skirt, but can be wrinkled up just right to hide your tummy. If you go for a bright summer color, make sure you wear a white top with it for maximum effect. Dress your outfit down with a pair of flip flops or pair it with cute heels for evening, especially if your skirt is black.
#3: The Floral Skirt
You absolutely can’t go wrong with a floral skirt this summer. It’s so breezy, stylish and easy to pull off on any occasion that you have to have one in your closet as a go-to piece for an impromptu night at the movies or a date with friends at a fine dining restaurant. The only thing you need to worry about with a floral skirt is where to wear it next! Pair it with a silk top that matches the color of the skirt for evening or with the ever so versatile white tank top for daily summer activities, such as shopping or grabbing brunch with friends on a patio. Accessorize to your liking but make sure the color or design of your top is subtle so it doesn’t overpower the skirt.
