If there’s one adage the micro mini trend has proved true, it’s “less is more.” Loss of material is immaterial, as miniskirts promise to deliver on maximum fun - from pops of colour to asymmetric silhouettes to deconstructed details. We present five outfit recipes for this season’s mini skirt offerings, now featuring more drastic fabric cuts than ever before. TLDR is your new rule of thumb when skirt hunting: Too Long? Doesn’t Rock.
sacai’s Asymmetric Pleated Mini Wrap Skirt
This army green utilitarian-inspired skirt is tailored with an asymmetric wrap front and accented with pleated details and contrasting cargo pockets. It styles seamlessly with a puffer-panel double-breasted vest in a coordinating colourway and a minimal white tee from Vince. Exuding the same daring and unusual spirit, GANNI’s split sole platform mules are forged entirely from rubber for an industrial appeal.
The look in a nutshell: Relaxed utilitarian streetwear with deconstructed details and subdued hues.
Ming Ma’s Floral Print Pleated Patchwork Asymmetric Mini Skirt
Welcome the season of blooms and romance with bow and floral motifs. Ming Ma’s trademark bow detailing adorns the skirt and classic coat, while the latter is further enlivened with flower-shaped crystal buttons. Yellow floral embroidery provides a touch of whimsy to the cropped white shirt with voluminous sleeves and crisscross waist detail, while a pair of black satin Mach & Mach heels with crystal double bows will crown you the belle of the ball.
The look in a nutshell: Floral, bows, and crystals for sophisticated glamour with an understated springtime air.
T By Alexander Wang’s Logo Jacquard Trim Mini Skirt
Contrast trim typically exudes a sporty allure, but when it’s executed on a cropped bra top and fitted crew neck cardigan - both in pale pink - a balance between urban grunge and elegance is struck instead. Strut your way through town in this put-together set whilst holding onto BOYY’s miniature Bobby Charm bag, featuring an oversized buckle for adorable contrast.
The look in a nutshell: Wardrobe essentials rendered in a pink palette for ultra-femme sass with a dose of queen bee chic.
Dion Lee’s Laced Tailored Mini Skirt
The spirit of experimental construction runs consistently throughout with statement details including a folded waistband, lace-up front, hook-and-eye clasps, rope macrame, and cut-outs. A body-hugging bustier enhances the mini skirt’s sleek sensuality, while a single-breasted blazer and canvas sneaker sandals from both incorporate refreshing nonchalance.
The look in a nutshell: Metallic accents and tasteful flashes of skin, shades of white have never looked this sexy and powerful.
Bottega Veneta’s Crocheted Chenille Twisted Mesh Mini Skirt
Prepare for double takes in this playful ensemble. Asymmetric ruffled shoulders on Alexander McQueen’s sweatshirt create a compelling silhouette that draws the eye upward, an antidote to the side-slit neon mini. Wavy-edge, duo-tonal Tire Chelsea boots and a chain link leather tote from MM6 Maison Martin Margiela perfect the subversive, modern aesthetic.
The look in a nutshell: Effortlessly cool get-up with bursts of yellow green against a black backdrop as well as dramatic contemporary twists.
