We’re deep into summer, and midi skirts have practically become a staple at this point, but why not take advantage of the remaining warm weather with a shorter hemline? You may be thinking, miniskirt? Isn’t that so 2004? We get it. The thought of styling a miniskirt to feel sophisticated and fresh can be challenging. I too am still haunted by the micro denim mini I wore on repeat as a teen.
But when styled appropriately, the miniskirt can actually be extremely chic. It’s the shoe pairing that can make or break the outfit. Edgy Mary Janes add a cool factor while structural pumps offer a polished take. Ahead, fashion girls show us seven different shoe styles they pair with miniskirts. Warning: You are probably going to want to copy these looks from head to toe, so have your credit card handy and get ready for some major shoe shopping.
Low Strappy Heels
A lower heel gives you a little extra height when you’re looking to elongate your legs. These barely there sandals are still majorly trending.
White Sneakers With Socks
A fresh way to wear sneakers is with your socks on full display. The streetwear-approved statement goes perfectly with a miniskirt.
Don’t be afraid of the high heel–and-miniskirt combo. With a pointy-toe pump, the effect is rather sophisticated.
There’s something so nostalgic about wearing a miniskirt with Mary Janes. It’s a nod to British mod style, especially with a patterned, checked skirt.
It’s no secret that the shoe of summer is the thong sandal. Whether you opt for the flat, casual flip-flop version or a pair with a little heel, this once-hated shoe is the hottest thing on Instagram right now.
These shoes are the perfect transition piece into fall. A pointier toe works best with shorter hemlines to balance out the chunkiness of the block heel.
Flat slides are an easy shoe pairing with a casual denim mini.
