Shop the Trend: Mini Skirts

When it comes to wearing a mini skirt, we’re slightly reluctant. Suddenly, it’s a whole lot of skin on show and we panic, unsure of how best to style it, while keeping things classy and banishing self-conscious thoughts.

However, the recent street style pics have us yearning to try out this bare-all trend. The best way to approach it? Strike a?balance by keeping the rest of your look pared back. By rule of thumb, if the legs are out, the shoulders should be mostly covered.
