Mini Skirts Are In, According To The Wall Street Journal

If you’re starting to get impatient from trying to find a way to incorporate a tea-length skirt into your spring wardrobe, you’re in luck. According to the Wall Street Journal, the mini skirt is making a comeback:

They’re coming from designers at fashion’s forefront— Hedi Slimane’s sultry Saint Laurent, Euro-posh Giambattista Valli, Dior‘s Raf Simons, casual-chic Isabel Marant — suggesting this is the tip of a wave. In his debut at Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière bet the bank on slim minis.

For the past few years, the popular silhouette has been the midi skirt, which grazed just below the knee and sometimes as low as the middle of your calf. But just like every trend’s cycle, the follow-up falls at the polar opposite, and so retailers will soon be stocking up on more mini skirts than usual.

After a number of seasons favoring modest skirts, the idea of showing off your legs again might make it seem like you’re taking style tips from a 16-year-old, WSJ suggests steering clear of high heels. Instead, try on a pair of kitten heels, chunky heeled booties, or even a pair of fashion sneakers. As for what style of mini skirt you should go for, check out our slideshow for a ton of options from geometric prints and lace to scalloped and asymmetrical hems.

Don’t forget to check out more trends: super distressed jeans, long jumpsuits, and white sneakers.
