3 Celebrity-Approved Ways to Wear a Mini Skirt for Spring
One-shoulder tops, ruffle-trimmed rompers, and distressed white jeans are cornerstones of every fashionable warm-weather wardrobe, but there’s one bare-it-all piece that doesn’t get quite as much street style cred as it deserves: the mini skirt. The perfect separate to show off those sun-kissed gams, this above-the-knee essential can kick it as a coverup for a stint in the sand or serve as the centerpiece for a DDG date-night ensemble — it’s that good. This week, Three Ways to Wear is taking style cues from three sartorially minded celebs to show you how to rock the iconic bottom all season long.
