Are We There Yet?

I find it maddening that after a particularly long and brutal winter, this seemingly endless streak of grey skies has basically robbed us of an entire month of summer. If and when the sun ever shines again, I can imagine that droves of New York women will don mini skirts and take to the streets to perform a Rockettes-style kickline in triumphant hallelujah. And if and when the day does come, you ought to be prepared to do your bit.

It's hard to imagine that with such little fabric, a girl can say so many things. Below, some must have styles, in the many languages of the mini.

The Sexy. I'm kind of over zipper skirts, but I'm in love with the bright orange zip on this paneled style. Grace Sun Banded Zipper Skirt, $165.90 @ Buy Definition (was $237).

The Chic. The tiny tiers create an interesting texture and the dark, graduated color palette makes for a sophisticated look. Plastic Island Tiered Skirt, $88.90 @ Buy Definition (was $127).

The Girly. This flirty, high-waisted, pleated style in a delicate floral print is so sweet. Steven Alan Boardwalk Skirt, $135 @ Jumelle (was $205).

The Denim. The All-American classic in a pencil fit is equal parts girl-next-door and saucy secretary. Try it in a different wash this year. I'm partial to this lovely blue. Corpus Mid Thigh Pencil Skirt, $138 @ Buy Definition.

The Casual. This American Apparel classic is surely a wardrobe staple by now, but it gets updated in new and exciting season-appropriate colors. Just as comfy as your favorite gym shorts and yet so much cuter. Melange Jersey Pocket Skirt, $30.
