Skirts have kind of fallen off the radar lately in favor of pieces like culottes and leather dresses. But there’s been a resurgence, thanks in part to the popularity of the midi skirt, and now minis are making their way back to the forefront too.

Ariana Grande recently posted a ‘gram of the most versatile mini skirt there is — the knit skater skirt. You know it — it looks like a bandage skirt but wears like your most comfortable pair of pants. And it’s a total workhorse when it comes to your wardrobe; you can wear it all year round and as high or low as you want to. If you’re sold on this style, read on to see how you can style it for work, weekend and date night.


You can go for a longer length here (or even just shimmy your shorter one down as far as you can take it) to satisfy any workplace dress requirements. Leave the blouse out over the skirt for a more modern look, and add blue and gray accessories to the black and white base for a cool yet neutral outfit.

You can wear this look with or without tights, depending on what you like (try an olive green, brown or even plum color if you do!). It’s a super textural look, with the knit skirt, suede boots, velvet top and faux shearling jacket — it’ll have your date wanting to touch you without even knowing why.

It’s a surprising way to wear this skirt, but in a good way. Match a skater skirt (with tights if you need to) with a ribbed and colorful turtleneck, and add some shiny kicks and an interesting necklace to top it off. Grab a functional backpack for weekend window shopping to keep the look practical yet stylish.
