One Piece, Five Ways: The Mini Skirt

It’s beginning to dawn on us that our bare-legged time has a time limit. The days are already noticeably shorter and our minds are already shifting to heavy tights and masculine trousers as we prep our wardrobe for fall. That said, we’re taking full advantage of wearing some of our favorite mini skirts while the time lasts.

Since it’s really been the summer of dresses, our skirts haven’t been receiving that much rotation as of late. As such, we figured now’s as good as a time as ever to pull out these flirty little numbers. Here, we’ve curated five outfits featuring our mini skirts that can take you from the office or classroom to happy hour just like that.
