Short thing – Esprit women’s miniskirts
No piece of clothing shows off legs to their advantage as elegantly as the miniskirt. This versatile
classic has long been scandal-free. All that remains is the attraction: thanks to their unlimited styling possibilities, miniskirts make them versatile and are an integral part of many a wardrobe: from the stretch mini in denim to playful flounces and elegant pleated skirts - have you already found your style?
One skirt – many variations
The miniskirt is a timeless fashion favourite. The classic shape is slightly flared and varies in length from the middle of the thighs to a maximum knee-length, usually ending a hand's breadth above the knee. Sufficient space where different mini skirt models can show their effect. We present you with our popular miniskirts.
The slinky miniskirt: a miniskirt in stretch fabric
Tight-fitting, this miniskirt shows-off your figure. Skirts made with stretch fabric move with you and always stay in shape. Especially complimentary are figure-flattering tops tucked into the waistband of the skirt. A pretty and fashionable style contrast.
The playful miniskirt: miniskirt with frills
On these minis, floral prints or animal prints create a girlish look. The frills of this wider miniskirt swirl around your legs, airy and light. This romantic design is further enhanced by the choice of material, as delicate fabrics such as chiffon or crêpe are often used for flowery miniskirts.
The cool miniskirt: miniskirts made of leather or in a leather look
A black short skirt made of leather or synthetic leather is one of our all time favourites. A black miniskirt combined with a statement T-shirt or a white oversize shirt and boots: it's all you need to look cool. The perfect outfit for a gallery private view, concert or bar.
The trendsetter: short skirts with elegant details
It's not only cuts and materials that create variety for miniskirts. Striking details are very much in vogue nowadays. Front zips or full-length zips, highlight the front of the miniskirt. Just like button flies. These designs are best worn with tops tucked into the waistband, so that eye-catchers can also show themselves off. Ornamental seams highlight pockets or sides.
How to style your miniskirt
You have found your favourite style. How best to style it? That depends on the occasion, of course. Essentially, you can wear a miniskirt any time. The important thing is that you feel comfortable in it. We have a few tips for you:
- Do the sitting test: Your miniskirt should not slide up too far when you sit down so as not to attract any unwanted attention.
- A miniskirt is usually enough of an exciting eye-catcher by itself. Avoid wide-cut tops or those that show too much skin.
- If the hem of your miniskirt ends where your thighs are thinnest, your legs will look longer.
Depending on which top and shoes you choose, you can make your miniskirt look feminine or more casual.
Perfect outfit for the beach
The miniskirt is the summer skirt. For the beach, the beach bar or the pool party you don't really need much - just your miniskirt, your bikini top, and a blouse or an oversize T-shirt that you knot at the front or on the side.
Casually chic for your leisure time
A jeans miniskirt is the perfect choice for a casual street style look, and so is a model made of sweat fabric. In summer you can wear a top or your favourite T-shirt. In the cooler seasons, your miniskirt can be worn with a sweatshirt or a hoodie. Of course, trainers are the right choice as shoes. This way you will get noticed when you meet your friends!
Classically feminine for special occasions
Combining black and white is always stylish and convivial: a black, simple skirt with a white blouse is the classic outfit. This will get you noticed at family celebrations as well as at the opera or when invited to dinner. Chic, but a little less classic is a miniskirt with a houndstooth check pattern worn with a tight black turtleneck pullover. Very chic and always very stylish.
Discreetly elegant at the office
Whether the miniskirt is suitable for the office depends on your employer’s dress code. You can definitely style it for the office, if appropriate. Choose a style that is not too short. It is best if your miniskirt ends just above the knee. It should fit well enough that you do not have to keep adjusting it. Pencil skirts and skirts with pinstripes are elegant business companions, especially if you combine them with blazer and T-shirt. Even a discreet stylish blouse or a plain cashmere jumper looks elegant and sophisticated.
The matching stockings for your miniskirt
Miniskirts are wearable all year round. Fortunately, there are plenty of chic stockings and leggings that you can wear with a short skirt in autumn, winter and on cooler spring days. The thickness of the stockings and their pattern depends on the season, as well as the material and style of the miniskirt. Slightly transparent stockings look nice with a dark blue Jersey miniskirt. Plain or with a subtle pattern, it is completely up to you. Winter styles like wool miniskirts or boucle skirts go well with slightly thicker wool stockings. They may also have a little structure.
Tip: tops also change in winter. Thin turtlenecks combined with short pleated skirts are recommended for colder days. Sweatshirts and knitted pullovers look good with denim skirts or miniskirts made of wool fabric.
