Go tailored

If denim mini skirts feel a little junior, embrace a high hemline in a traditional suit material instead. Alexa Chung makes a case for working the trend in the form of a tailored two-piece by Stella McCartney.

Make it high-waisted

Take your cue from this style maven and opt for a mini skirt that sits much higher on your midriff, rather than at your hips. It will avoid you tapping into that 'belt skirt' trend that haunted us in the Noughties.

Even though Giovanna Battaglia is wearing girly pink hues and heart-shaped sunglasses, she's still managed to make her mini look all grown up. Take your cue from her and dress it up with statement heels and an on-trend jacket.

The ditzy print on Emily Ratajkowski's floral mini skirt makes it look ladylike and elegant. We'd pair ours with a cable knit jumper and a pair of brogues.

Team high hemlines with high necklines

Make like Topshop's latest catwalk collection and go for legs over boobs by pairing a mini skirt with a polo-neck jumper or a high-necked T-shirt, rather than something more low cut.

Channel your inner cowgirl

YSL's SS18 collection was all about the high octane minis. While some of the pieces were definitely more night-time glamour, the house also made the trend work for the day with a western feel by teaming with chunky knits, oversized jackets and knee-high boots.
