Now, I know what you're thinking. Full skirts and midis are CLEARLY the trend of the moment.
Don't you think I know that?
But, it can't be denied that the mini is slowly easing its way back into our world.
Fashion is all about those extremes and I love when two opposing trends meet halfway across the runway.
Now, here's the rub. While the midi skirt is a comfortable and chic look that even a short girl like myself can pull off with the highest of heels, the mini poses a problem: How do you know when it's TOO short?
After serial watching Mad Men, I can't help but wonder: how does Megan Draper sit in those skirts? Is she just wearing really pretty underwear that she's anxious to show? What is the key to wearing a mini?
If your worries resonate with mine, you can stop right here. Here is your guide to wearing a mini without looking like you whored it out this season.
Try An Oversized Sweater
Even if you aren't wearing a micro mini, an oversized sweater gives off the illusion of a shorter skirt. It also happens to look cozy and cute.
If you're looking to pull off that mini look, but aren't too keen on showing off your legs, wear a pair of opaque tights. Try something funky for added fashion flair.
