Mini Skirts You Can Wear To The Office

VERSACE

Shrunken hemlines refresh the trouser-to-suit pairing. Here are the keys to this macro-to-micro matching.

ONE TRUE PAIR

Blazers and skirts in hues that match.

Jil Sander reinvents a classic double-breasted blazer with a tulip shaped hip, adding curves to an otherwise boxy silhouette. If you want a quirky option, Coperni’s version comes with a knotted breast detail instead of lapels. Another element to look out for: a split skirt that can take you from boardroom-to-beach in a snap.

CHECKED OUT

Start the season with a nod to the ’90s.

Created 27 years ago, Clueless’s Cher Horowitz’s plaid Dolce & Gabbana set was a striking fitted and abbreviated match. The 2020s rework has moved away from the body in an anti-fit that’s more cozy than constricting. See the checked pattern anew with Versace’s houndstooth iterations: a hot pink pattern clash between a macro blazer and a micro mini, and a fiery red pairing that has its graphic checks disrupted by fuzz, frays, and fringes.

BIGGER IS BETTER

Decades after its mainstream introduction, shouldered blazers still make for a dramatic entrance.

Grace Jones still got it right: sized-up shoulders are emblematic of power and boldness. The season’s constructions show off another take on the blazer dress: extra wide at Dolce & Gabbana, and fashioned into a shrunken trench at No. 21. The buttons are lost completely at Dion Lee, making for a clean and sleek front that emphasizes the look’s volume.
