Now that summer is upon us, we are ready to bare some leg with one of our favorite standbys: the mini skirt. The trick to wearing this wardrobe staple at any age? First, look for options that hit at an appropriate length (no revealing butt cheeks, please). Timeless silhouettes, like a wrap shape or perfect A-lines, are a must. Fabric choice is incredibly important, too. Always go for something with a little structure, like a tweed or crisp cotton. And when it comes to denim, make sure it is clean and simple — no heavy distressing or trendy embellishments. Follow these simple steps, and you will be sure to nail the mini skirt for the office.
