For whatever reason that skirt in your closet is just waaay too short—maybe it shrunk in the wash or you bought it a size too small—know you won't have to bid it adieu forever! Below, we list down a few prime examples of how to style your way around a micro-mini dilemma (and not accidentally flash anyone).
Tip 1: Tuck it.
A relatively new favorite trick of street style stars: toss your tiny skirt on top of a longer shirtdress and let the tails peek out. An instantly longer hemline!
Tip 2: Pair it with trousers.
Okay, so Liz Uy's dress isn't particularly short, but you get the idea! Throwing a pair of wide-leg trousers under a risky frock is a fresh way to go.
Tip 3: Layer it.
In case you were also wondering how on earth a girl is supposed to wear a totally sheer midi skirt, wear one over or under microscopic mini like Irene Kim! That's two styling problems solved in one go.
Tip 4: Go cape crazy.
You could always fly the superhero way. Take a cue from Kim Jones—pair little leather skirt with a high-necked cape top and let it flow behind you. The play on lengths will balance things out!
Tip 5: Slip on those jeans.
Got an intricately-embellished minidress in your wardrobe? There's no need to save it for nights out dancing: layer yours over straight-cut jeans for an interesting daytime look.
Tip 6: Revive your tights!
Tights are back in a big way, girls. If you're not (yet) willing to pull on the brightly-hued versions on the runway, try out someone fun yet neutral like opaque white!
