For whatever reason that skirt in your closet is just waaay too shortmaybe it shrunk in the wash or you bought it a size too smallknow 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.

It's just one of those seasons where you just need a damn superwoman cape. ???????? @louisvuitton

You could always fly the superhero way. Take a cue from Kim Jonespair 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!
