It’s hot out. Like, really hot. And the less clothing the better these days. I’m a sucker for a mini skirt no matter the season. I have short legs, so short skirts work for me. But come summer it’s essential. Give me all the minis. Mini skirts, mini dresses, I want them all. And this gingham mini is perfect for summer. It might look familiar, it’s the skirt version of these high-waisted shorts that are also a solid buy for the summer months.
How To Style Mini Skirts For Summer
With A Tank And Heels
This is one of my go-to combinations. It’s simple and easy. And you can feel dressed up in a pinch. Whether you go for a simple cotton tank or this cute one from Abercrombie that has some texture to it, both are great options. Add a third piece like a denim jacket or linen blazer to complete the look. All about the third piece!
With heels, this becomes the perfect look for date night or dinner out with friends. Go super high in these amazing (can’t stop wearing) Larroude platform heels. But a low-kitten heel or espadrille are great too.
Graphic Tee And Sneakers
I’d wear these with denim cut offs, so swapping for a skirt is a more interesting and elevated look for summer. And yes, you can pair gingham with a concert tee. I did it here in the shorts version of this skirt. It’s a cool combo that you can wear all summer long.
Oversized Button Down
Playing with proportions, adding a slightly oversized button down (maybe a linen or poplin one) with a little mini skirt is proportion perfection. Add a simple sandal or low heel for a very cool and laid back vibe.
My Favorite Mini Skirts For Summer
Now that we have a few outfit ideas, let’s pair them with some fun mini skirts. Below are some of my favorites that would work with any of the above combinations to create stylish summer outfits. Personally, I really love a good a-line or straight-fit mini skirt. I find them to be the most flattering. If you want to try something a little flowy, I’d just keep in mind your proportions. Flowy on the bottom to me means more fitted on the top to balance it out. And let’s avoid the asymmetrical and tulip hems in the 2010s.
