In the fashion world, styles come and go every few years. Bell bottoms, platform sandals, and high-waisted jeans to name a few. One style that has made its way back on the fashion radar is the mini skirt. It’s comfy, cute, perfect for summer, and we’re hoping this style doesn’t go anywhere fast.

English fashion model Twiggy 1960

Beginning in the 1940s, the midi skirt was the epitome of elegance and grace, but by the 1960s, styles got shorter and fashion took an edgy turn. These daring hemlines were loved by one person in particular: Twiggy. A style and fashion icon.

From here, the trend exploded and showed up on runways, music stages, videos, and in magazines. It stuck in a big way. Fast forward to the 2000s, and we’re seeing the leggy mini skirt embraced by some of the most renowned designers like Gucci, Dior, and Giambattista Valli.
