How To Style The Mini Skirt In 2022, According To Celebrities

It’s time to join the mini skirt revival.

Originally Published: 

As dopamine dressing and Y2K fashion continues to rise, the mini skirt is one of the biggest trends of 2022 and celebrities are already taking this popular garment for a spin. (That comes as no surprise since the mini skirt was a favorite among the famous set in the early 2000s.)

Megan Fox was one of the first to join the recent mini skirt revival, opting for a bright blue version from British designer Supriya Lele while heading to her now-fiancé’s concert in Los Angeles. Bella Hadid once wore a micro-mini skirt as a swim cover-up in Miami beach (and has worn plenty more in a variety of outfits since then), while Rihanna made an appearance at Complexcon in 2021 wearing the same style in red patent leather.

The coveted “going-out” garment also made its return on the runway, garnering plenty of buzz from Miu Miu’s Spring 2022 collection, which featured the micro-mini skirt with preppy pleats and midriff-baring tops. Sure enough, we’re giving the trend a try now that the weather is warming up — and we’ll be sporting the look well into the fall months, too.

As you plan your mini skirt outfits, why not take some ideas from the stylish celebs who are already showing them off? From monochrome looks to embellishments and statement prints, find out how to style the mini skirt according to the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Willow Smith, and many more.

Mini Skirt Outfit Idea No. 1: Monochrome

A monochrome ‘fit is the easiest way to give the now-trending mini skirt a modern-day update. Take style tips from Rihanna and go for a bold hue like red, which she mixed with different shades, textures, and prints.
