How to Wear a Miniskirt

How to Wear a Miniskirt
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

What’s the key to wearing a miniskirt with style?  As you show off your legs, keep your top half covered up so that you’re not showing off too much skin.  This holds true whether you’re a teenager or if your teen years are far behind you.  The rule of thumb is that the shorter your skirt, the more you want to keep covered up on top.  Here’s Omiru’s version of how to wear a miniskirt:

1.  Start with a miniskirt.  Structured fabrics are going to be your best bet so the skirt isn’t overly figure-hugging.
2.  Layer on a tank top and a tailored button-down shirt.  Notice how the button-down and tank work together with the two shades of blue.  We love how the bright blue knit tank will peek out from under the lighter, paler tailored woven shirt.
3. Finish off the outfit with a light silk scarf (don’t you love how the brown looks against the backdrop of the blues) and a pair of statement sandals.

Mix utilitarian style with urban sophistication for a look that’s all about effortless summer style.  Simply juxtapose a rugged chambray shirt against a feminine, brightly colored tank.  Here’s how to get the look of effortless summer style in a chambray shirt:

1.  Start with a bright strappy summer tank and a pair of white bootcut jeans.
2.  Layer on a chambray shirt, a preppy alternative to the long, cardigan sweater.  Doesn’t the blue chambray look fabulous with the bright yellow tank?
3.  Finish off the look with a pair of flat sandals and a messenger bag slung over your shoulder.
