What Shoes to Wear with a Mini Skirt

While miniskirts have never fully gone out of style, they have had their ups and downs over the years. Following a viral resurgence at Miu Miu, super-short hems dominated the Fall 2022 shows so you may be wondering how to add this look to your closet? 

How to Wear a Mini Skirt

You don't have to go full micro Miu Miu to partake in the mini skirt's current resurgence, and contrary to what you may think, minis aren’t just for petite women or those under the age of twenty five.  They can look chic and polished on anyone. While the micro-mini reappeared in Miu Miu’s S/S 2022 collection with models in cropped white button-downs and navy sweaters paired with mini skirts barely wider than their belts, keep in mind there are many different styles to choose from. 

There really is a mini for every style and occasion, whether it’s ruched, low waisted, belted,  cutout, wrapped, tweed, or knit, the mini skirt is versatile and varied.  A structured mini that balances fit and flow, is a great choice for a professional look, or try a vegan leather style that can easily go from day to night.   

In the winter, pair a mini skirt with boots and a long coat, tights and a big cozy scarf. Short skirts and long jackets are an exceptional match as the combination of a trench coat or duster and a mini gives the illusion of additional coverage without actually covering up your legs. A good styling tip for petite gals is to reach for a monochromatic layer that accentuates the leg and completes the mini skirt ensemble.  Or try layering an off-white knit over an off-white skirt to help lengthen your torso and ensure your proportions look good despite a high hem.

High heels can look super sexy with a mini dress or skirt, but for a casual day look they can be less functional. Flat shoes, brogues or boots, with a low heel, are a stylish alternative to a pair of stilettos.  Not only is a lower heel easier to walk in, it’ll also help keep your proportions in check. It doesn’t matter if you opt for Chelseas or a lace up ankle boot, these options will show off some leg without throwing off your proportions.

Effortless and chic, our Hatter boots come in neutral hues and fun prints like plaids and florals. Forever classic, our Brick Lane brogue boots have all the features and fun colors that make wearing them with a mini skirt easy. Knee-high boots are also a great style to pair with a mini; choose a boot with a flat sole or low block heel and enough structure so it doesn’t slouch down or cling to your calves, such as our stylish Rubix.  

And finally why not consider brogues, a classic addition to any mini skirt that is certain to add a little prep to your step. Like our Brick Lane Boots, our Brick Lane leather brogues have all of the traditional features like punched holes and wingtips and are fully leather lined for all-day comfort. They’re also available in a range of fun colors, including our signature teal leather.
