How to wear a mini skirt:

There really isn’t much to it. You step into it (just kidding). If you want to wear a micro mini now, think heavier fabrics and dark colors, florals or sequins. If you want to make your legs look thinner, wear black opaques. That is my trick for pulling off minis. It has served me well. Come spring pair it with a little tee and a bare leg and go for it. The sequined version (which you can buy for a song now) will look great with a basic white tee and starry sandals.
