Your Guide To Wearing A Mini Skirt

With the return of mod style on all the runways, it's no wonder the mini skirt has made a major comeback.

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.

Wear A Culotte
If you're worried about the mini revealing a little too much, a culotte is a great alternative. Popularized by fashion retailer, Zara, It looks like a mini skirt in the front, but there are actually shorts (party) in the back to prevent wardrobe malfunctions.

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.
Wear tights
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.
Wear it with a structured blazer.
Nothing classes up a look quite like a blazer. Try the new matching trend by wearing a blazer with the same print as your skirt. It may be short, but you'll still look sophisticated.
Wear it with a plain t-shirt.
Keep it casual with a simple t-shirt a la normcore. That way, nobody will think you tried too hard to look sexy.
It's time to get risky. Ignore the stigma and get yourself a mini this season!
