Paris Hilton once proclaimed that “skirts should be the size of a belt” – and committed to this look all through the early-aughts. While the look is not for everybody, we are welcoming the return of the miniskirt with open arms.
Since its advent in the ’60s – popularised by British designer Mary Quant – the miniskirt has always been associated with women’s liberation. Today, the message remains the same. For so long, the pandemic has confined our activities indoors, and our lives revolved around security and comfort. But now, we’re ready for a little more excitement.
For adventurous fashion seekers, the runways were filled with a multitude of super sexy micro miniskirt references. Case in point: Donatella Versace, who got us reminiscing about the 1997 romcom Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion with her take on the matching glittery miniskirt and cropped top combo. Over at Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, known for his signature body-con fits, cut a thigh-high slit into an already tiny skirt.
