A (very) low-rise, super short mini skirt from Miu Miu basically broke the Internet last month—it even has its own Instagram account—and folks from all over are freaking out over a Walmart dupe. Often out of a desire to recreate the runway look, several fashion influencers have paired their micro-minis with just-as-short sweaters with preppy collars. Make the aesthetic your own by choosing a cropped cardigan with a fun pattern—the one below has pastel mushrooms.

Add some bling to your mini skirt by pairing it with a chain belt. Since it will likely be the focal point, make sure the rest of the look is understated (minimalist jewelry, neutral hues, and so on) so not to take attention away from your hero accessory.

Polished and Preppy
