FASHION SCHOOL THE MINI
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
