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.
