Between the domination of high knee boots and the equally strong early aughts obsession, is it any surprise that the huge trend for fall would be, well…a mini one?
The mini is flaunting its way into this season with all new patterns and textures, as well as some old favorites. Here at SLHer, we’ve got the short and sweet of this trend, with 20 fun and flirty options to infuse into your fall wardrobe.
Ready to get your mini on?
Let’s start with one of our Editors favorites. This black floral mini from The Kooples features the chicest little white-and-red flower pattern on a go-with-everything black background. The versatility of this mini lends itself to a variety of knits, blouses and tees. It’s all around ruching also makes it ideal for just about every body type…plus we just love the ruffled bottom hem which gives this skirt extra flirt as you sashay your way into fall.
Looking for that staple piece to bring your Barbiecore look together? Look no further than this fab fuchsia beauty from Windsor. With its high waist and generous side slit, this satiny mini can shine all on its own, or go full BC with an equally bold hot pink boyfriend blazer.
Here’s something just for our fellow high-low skirt lovers. Meet the high-low mini from the Parisian minimalist brand, Equipment. Made of 100% silk, the soft-hued, abstract garden pattern play extremely well with this season’s bold colors and bright sweaters. And we’d absolutely pair this with our stomping-est, biker-inspired boots.
