‘60S MINI

1900

You can pick up one in various patterns and designs, from patent leather to cotton glitter to wool. Tweed and check are bang on trend at the moment and add instant intrigue to any outfit. It works wonders with a pair of vintage white sandals for a summer party or BBQ with some mates. The mini skirt is absolutely timeless, and every year it makes a big reappearance as it is such a key piece during spring and summer. Matalan have some super examples and most of them are less than twenty quid, so it would be rude not to nab a couple. You can team it with an oversized sweater and converse for long summer nights or a floral skater dress for a cheeky pub crawl. Mini skirts are fun yet fabulously minimal.

Anyone can rock a mini skirt but it is critical that you pay attention to the skirt, shoes, and accessories that you match it with. It’s easy to show off your pins and look stellar in the right mini skirt. However, it’s important to remember that not all minis are equal. Some have more space than others. The classic A-line and bias cuts flatter most women, whilst the tighter variety tends to work best on a long-legged, slim, younger wearer. A flowing mini creates a softer, more summery feel. A high-waisted mini can give the impression of hanging lower on the leg than it really does, making it more work appropriate. A casual, mid-length mini goes with everything and is good for everyday use. Wearing the right shoes can make or break an outfit. Boots or high heels are often a classic pairing as they counteract the shortness of the mini skirt whilst elongating your legs. Whatever the occasion you can do no wrong in adding this iconic skirt back into your wardrobe this season!
