Ladies, the mini skirt is back with a vengeance. Yes, it’s been a recurring trend over the past couple of decades, but you can’t deny that the so-close-you-can-taste-it warm weather makes you want to bare all (or as much as is socially appropriate). So start toning those gams now, because before you know it, they’ll be your most valuable spring accessories. With newfangled styles ranging from feminine and flowy to geometric and edgy, there’s a mini skirt for everyone, at every price, for every occasion. Let the leg lifts begin.
1. This asymmetrical, flowy, floral number from Pency ($266) exudes a bit of unexpected attitude with its edgy buckle detail, and can be easily and conveniently dressed up or down.
2. Silence & Noise’s flattering Hi-Waisted Tulip Skirt ($58), available in blue, black and white, is the quintessential basic mini with enough versatility to last for seasons to come. If you’re as impatient as I am, try it now over a pair of tights and ride out winter’s final days.
3. With this very original, very fun Foil Mini by Target’s Xhilaration line ($14.99), you can easily incorporate a (ridiculously) cheap thrill into your spring wardrobe.
4. The denim mini skirt is as analogous to warm weather as beach parties and clam bakes. I like American Eagle’s Distressed Denim Mini ($39.50), with its perfectly worn-in look and its even more perfect price tag.
