Twiggy. Jackie O. Spice Girls. Can you figure out what all these iconic women had in common? It was their wardrobe full of minis. While Twiggy was the first unofficial spokesperson for the mini skirt, Jackie O stood apart for wearing a short pleated Valentino dress down the aisle.
A rebellious fashion trend that started back in the 60s, the well-above-the-knee mini skirt was a bold experiment. It went on to be a style staple all the way through the 90s and early 2000s, only to disappear half a decade later on account of an unwarranted overdose. I remember noticing this as I was growing up thinking it was unfortunate. I mean, I was finally almost ready to start wearing them and just my luck- they weren’t ‘in’ anymore. So, imagine the joy I felt when I saw the runway swarming with mini skirts again.
Months later, sure enough, Bollywood celebs have stamped the seal of approval on the comeback of the long gone trend. Shilpa Shetty’s classic buttoned denim mini is doing its Insta rounds. So is Jacqueline Fernandez’s side button Balmain skirt and newbie, Disha Patani’s frayed hem style.
However, I believe that the wrap mini skirt is probably Bollywood’s favourite right now. Check out Shraddha Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra rocking theirs around town.
So, work those legs out, honey. Tone ‘em up to get prepped for mini skirt season - here are 8 very stylish minis you should wishlist right here, right now:
