FASH­ION SCHOOL THE MINI

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

Four steps to va-va-voom.

1. To qual­ify as a true mini, the skirt should hit about mid-thigh, four to

five inches above the knee. 2. Look for a mini that sits slightly higher on the waist to cre­ate a long, lean sil­hou­ette.

Avoid pock­ets, which add bulk. 3. Es­chew pumps. The mini looks fresh­est this fall when paired with an­kle

boots or knee-high stom­pers. 4. Keep the fo­cus on your legs. Cre­ate bal­ance by pair­ing a mini with a boyfriend blazer

or a turtle­neck—an­other es­sen­tial fall trend. Ali­cia Sil­ver­stone
