In the UK we are currently experiencing a bit of a freak Indian summer style of warmth but this is definitely not usual for October. If you are a subscriber of my newsletter (Subscribe here) you will know that I am having a bit of a love in with mini skirts. I love how versatile they are. Wear them with or without tights (perfect right now), with a cute fitted body, with a blouse or even cuter still, a chunky roll neck jumper slung on top. Check out my 3 favourite mini skirts which I am loving right now, all affordable and from the high street, including Topshop, Oasis and ASOS.
SUIT YOUR STYLE
There a mini skirts for everyone who wants to wear them. My favourites are the skater look like the photo below. Skater skirts are great for me personally as they cover my thighs which makes me happy and looks super cute. I love to balance the ‘sticking out-ness’ of the skater skirt with a slim fitting tee or jumper. For colder days I love wearing the cheap Primark fleece lines tights. Since I found out that fleece lined tights were a thing and didn’t make my legs look any thicker, I can honestly say my winter wardrobe was revolutionised. I get cold very easily so tended to wear jeans throughout the whole of the winter months, that was until I found fleecy tights.
WHICH PLEATS BEST?
Let’s talk pleating…The skater skirt in the above picture is made for me as I adore the accordion pleat style. Even though I love the look, I actually hate box pleated skirts on me as my thighs and booty just stick them open making the skirt look way too small for me. I mostly have this problem because my waist is quite a lot smaller in comparison to my hips. This being said, I do adore the tennis skirt look where the pleats are stitched down to low hip…so cute.
WHERE DOES IT SIT?
I personally love a high waisted skirt as I feel like it gives the illusion of a longer/less slutty skirt hehe. When I was a young teenager, back in the Britney era, I used to wear very low slung mini skirts which literally looked like a belt (oh my, how old do I sound!). I actually tried on these said skirts recently and I looked shocking, how did my parents not say to me, “You’re not going out like that”? Well…fast forward many years and I am back in mini skirts at a rather more decent length but definitely not fuddy duddy. I also really love a high waisted, cinched in skirt to emphasise the smallest part. Where do you like yours to sit?
