10 Fresh Ways to Wear a Miniskirt

Couture Fashion Week recently wrapped in Paris, and we were surprised to find miniskirts everywhere we looked. Normally we expect over-the-top gowns and ornate pieces, but we enjoyed the different spins fashion girls put on the leg-baring wardrobe basic this season. So for a fashion-forward look that is street style star–approved, try adding a miniskirt to your outfit.

Best of all was the creative ways fashion girls were styling the closet staple—and we even learned a few tricks. First, play with proportions. By adding a voluminous top or a shirt with exaggerated frilled cuffs, you’re able to strike the perfect balance against super-short hemlines. Next, keep things monochrome. An outfit that’s head-to-toe white or all black looks instantly cool and polished. Another trick? Opt for high-rise styles. The silhouette hits at the smallest part of your waist, so it has a slimming effect.
