Short, shorter, mini. Let’s get it going! With one of the most important trends for fall/winter 2018, we finally start off with a new Trendy Tuesday series called “Fall Feature”. So why will everyone wear miniskirts the upcoming months? It’s not only an ideal choice for the transition phase; it also comes as a statement for self-determination.
Why Miniskirts Have Been Revolutionary Until Today
Thanks to its popularity, it is quite obvious that miniskirts have already gone through several trend phases. Back in the 60s when It-girls like Twiggy used to wear them, they even caused a scandal among the older generations. Luckily, designer Mary Quant made sure that miniskirts didn’t disappear. At this point, let’s say thank you to all those women of the swinging sixties.
Hopping over into today’s western world, miniskirts hardly cause any problems anymore. Actually, they set a statement that was also important to the girls 60 years ago: with the hem ending above the knee, they not only stand for more legroom but also for feminine freedom. Both fashionably and socially speaking. So after the world was faced with anxiety and insecurity in the past few years, it’s now time for more liberty. And while women’s movements are fighting for more equality and acceptance, the fashion world sets a statement, too.
To The Versatility Of The Miniskirt
So it makes sense, why the miniskirt is praised in various versions for this fall/winter 2018 season. At Versace, it comes in a preppy plaid look, at Miu Miu it’s all about wintery wool and at Off-White it gets an outdoor update thanks to a quilted waterproof material. Isabel Marant even combined two major fall trends with her zebra printed miniskirt – a Trendy Tuesday about animal prints is coming up in the next editions.
Like this, miniskirts can be adapted to various situations, styles and moods. Whether you like it with a cool sweatshirt and sneakers or with a wrap blouse and slingbacks – a miniskirt will always fit the fall concept. Another advantage comes with this year’s summer trend of the micro-miniskirts because you can also make the even shorter versions ready for fall season. After all, the message stays the same: the fashionable way of wearing freedom.
