In case you hadn’t noticed, mini skirts are back, and in a big way. If you thought the trend had to be left in your teens, you’d be wrong - showing skin is in and mini is the silhouette of the season.
How to style a mini skirt in winter?
Despite preconceptions, a mini skirt can be chic and classy. The key is to balance your pieces. Mini skirts and oversized blazers are a match made in heaven. Ditto to a mini skirt and a trench or a longline coat. Wear a high neck top underneath and finish with a pair of knee-high boots. Wouldn't consider going out in the winter months without wearing tights? Choose a 20 denier pair.
Style a leather mini skirt like Leonie Hanne, who stepped out in one at New York Fashion Week (as seen above), worn with an oversized structured jacket and strappy heels. Or emulate her NYFW tonal pink outfit with multiple colourful pieces worn at once.

For a more casual ensemble, look to the Paris Fashion Week street style set. We love this beige Dior pleated mini skirt paired with the matching jacket and preppy loafers.
