When it comes to warm (read: hot) weather dressing, less is definitely more. Itty bitty tube tops, daisy dukes, slinky slip dresses — if it can keep me cool, I'm into it. Taking this into account, summer 2019 mini skirts are currently topping my shopping list thanks to their uber short hemline and breezy nature. Paired with a lightweight crop top and some comfy sandals, they'll keep me looking and feeling chilled out all season long.
It's worth mentioning that current mini skirt offerings are also really, really good and will make any outfit trendy AF. From denim offerings boasting tie-dye patterns to animal print galore to silky floral options, the range of styles is mindbogglingly rad. Plaid is also having a moment right now, so channel your inner Cher Horowitz and snag yourself a checked mini. I'd suggest getting a few styles with killer prints to pair with those white and black tees you already have in your closet for effortlessly cool dressing, as well as a standard denim option to wear with literally whatever. Below, I rounded up 20 of the best options on the market right now in every cut, print, textile, and style. They bring a whole new meaning to short and sweet.
