How to Master Wearing a Miniskirt Like an It-Girl

The miniskirt has time and time again been shamed in history. Conjuring up images of schoolgirls and cheerleaders, the mini has one of the worse reputations in sartorial history. In fact, the priestess of chic, Coco Chanel herself once even declared this ladylike piece to be “just awful.”

Despite these holy words, the mini is now back in fashion and according to our experts, the style is here to stay. One of the most difficult pairings for us grown (though still young at heart) women is how to temper the mini length to dress for professional settings. Some say it’s impossible, however today, we are proving those skeptics wrong and focusing on smart mini skirt pairing.

Scroll down to discover how to wear the mini-length style so it can take you from the office to after-hour drinks stylishly and professionally!
