Mini skirts are a fashion item that seem to have stirred up a lot of controversy and emotion (among other things) over the course of time.
Even though mini skirts are not a new style, and we live in an era where Shoppinggirls should be free to dress as they wish, reactionary opinions, sometimes self-inflicted, may still influence a Shoppinggirl’s decision on whether or not to wear a mini skirt.
There are excellent reasons to embrace the mini skirt as part of a Shoppinggirl’s Summer wardrobe, and there are so many styles and options that it is now easy for anyone to enjoy the benefits of this fashion item.
As every Shoppinggirl knows, mini skirts are fantastic wardrobe staples during the Summer
They are cool….
They are light and airy….
They are easy to move in….
They show off your Summer-glowing skin tone, whether you are deeply bronzed, sun kissed, or perfect-as-you-are….
They are easy to pack for a beach day, weekend trip, or to the office for going out after work….
They can be feminine….
Or just plain fun.
Mini skirts can be worn by any Shoppinggirl. So-called “rules” about what age, size, shape or whatever else a Shoppinggirl “should” be in order to wear a mini skirt are nonsense.
The critical factor in what you wear is your understanding of yourself, your personal sense of style, and your activities and practical requirements from your wardrobe.
Besides, there are so many mini skirt variations, you aren’t limited to just one vibe. Lengths vary, starting from longer skirts that are only a few inches above the knee, and up from there to the micro-mini styles. There are all kinds of looks for all kinds of Shoppinggirls, from demure to sporty to nerdy to wild.
Summer weather calls for being cool as well as fashionable, and layering isn’t much of an option in hot and humid conditions. A mini skirt has a certain presence that offers a lot of style in a small package.
Summer activities are often playful and free in spirit, and mini skirts highlight this mood. This is probably the best season to cut loose and wear a skirt with a fun element, such as a pattern or detailing that winks at your day’s outing to a zoo, aquarium, water park, or other recreational venue.
It’s also a great season to have fun with fads or something you wouldn’t usually wear. Because it’s easy to find Summer fashion bargains, you won’t have to expend a lot for a quirky addition to your wardrobe that you might only wear for a few months. But those kinds of seasonal purchases can be just the thing to keep your wardrobe fresh and exciting to wear and enjoy.
So, embrace your Summer self and add a mini skirt to your wardrobe. Remember, women in the past actually engaged in protests for the right to wear mini skirts, it’s a Shoppinggirl’s right!
