Miniskirts Are Back for Winter—These Are the 6 Best Shoes to Wear With Them

Miuccia Prada succeeded in her mission to revive the noughties miniskirt after its brief hiatus. It’s been one heck of a year since Miu Miu debuted the teeny micro mini, and it still remains the skirt style on everyone’s hips. With its increasing popularity, ultra-small skirts from denim to A-line to pleated variations continue to have a moment in the fashion world, even despite the best of the leg-baring weather being well behind us. The miniskirt as a concept is all well and good, but once you slip into one, one of the biggest dilemmas is assessing which shoes to wear.

School uniforms might have us believing that ballerinas are the sole shoe option for the short skirt, but there are many contenders to pair with teeny styles. Prada demonstrated this best with a playful element and balance of proportions: styling its miniskirt with chunky loafers and mid-calf socks to offset micro inches. The miniskirt has since been styled with every type of shoe, including thigh-skimming boots, Converse and slip-on mules. French women are a shining example of how best to wear the miniskirt trend. They’ve inherited the micro mini as part of their uniform, preferring to wear it with loafers and slingbacks and proving that you can integrate classic shoes with risqué styles to create a look you can wear with ease during the day.
