Trend To Try: Micro Minis

When I really want to feel sexy, I always reach for leg-baring pieces. I mean does it get much hotter than a leg-baring ensemble with a pair of killer pumps? I think not!

With the 80’s trend slowly trickling in, the micro mini is making a major comeback. We saw fantastic leg-baring styles on the spring runways at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, Matthew Williamson, etc., and the leg-centric trend was even stronger at the fall shows.

Rock your mini with a boyfriend blazer for an androgyny chic vibe, with a floaty tunic for sexy yet demure stye; wear it with bare legs and killer pumps now and with opaque tights and a funky pair of booties come fall, anyway you slice it, this wardrobe staple is capable of upping the chic-quotient, not to mention the sex-appeal, of any look.

Check out some killer styles after the jump!

Hey. If you’ve got it, show it. Pairing it with leggings is always a good look.

I have a leather micro mini exactly as the one in the pic (without the zipper) from when I was in my early 20’s. Now I am 35 yo, and although I have a rocking body/legs, I would like to know until when it is hot to wear them without loooking like a shameful weirdo.
