The miniskirt is having a moment right now, but for me, it's more than a trend. I love a good miniskirt and have been wearing them ever since my teens. They are classic and versatile and can be styled so many ways—and they're not just for summer! I love wearing miniskirts all year round. My younger self couldn't wait to grow up and wear miniskirts at my own whim; they have gone from a "daring" wardrobe piece to a classic staple. I saw them worn in the '90s by Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, who made them, in my opinion, iconic. You can now find a trusty miniskirt amongst most retailers. This & Other Stories style made from recycled fabrics is a "true" miniskirt length. Here are five sleek ways I plan on styling it this winter.
Style Notes: Stripe knitwear is a mainstay in my winter wardrobe; the more oversized and baggier the silhouette, the better! The idea behind this look is that the knitwear remains the focus, while the miniskirt acts as an accompaniment. For colder months, I'd layer this look with a coat, and yes, you can always add opaque tights.
Style Notes: This Arket knit works so well tucked into this miniskirt. I've gone double wool by throwing this & Other Stories wool coat over the top, which is the perfect length to tie and wrap around your legs if needed. The loafers give it a smart edge, worn with socks to make this outfit more appropriate for winter. Comfortable footwear is always at the top of my agenda, and these loafers do not disappoint; they require no breaking in. This is the miniskirt-and-shoe combination I wear most often.
Style Notes: This look is versatile and practical. (I hope you're starting to see a theme here.) This is a great outfit to wear to the office then to venture out after work. Add a beanie and a knit hanging effortlessly around your shoulders for added warmth and a cool "I've just thrown together" look. For me, an all-black outfit is always a winner; I then use my Celine belt and Sandro boots to create some contrast with the hardware.
Style Notes: My statement Totême coat is definitely the main character in this look; it's all about the cover-up. I like to wear a minimal outfit underneath, which, in this instance, consists of my miniskirt and a roll-neck top. Understated knee-high boots complete the minimalist look (and will keep your legs toastier in the process).
Style Notes: One of my favourite ways to wear a blazer is with trainers, and my trusty miniskirt and my Nanushka sweatshirt help pull this outfit together. This is a great running-errands ensemble. My ACNE Studios bag really elevates this look; black and brown styled together will always be one of my go-to combinations. You can tuck the sweatshirt in for more of a streamlined silhouette, but I also enjoy the relaxed untucked look, as it adds to the casual appeal.
