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 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. Soon enough, we’ll all be giving the trend a try once the weather warms up again.
Until then, why not take some outfit ideas from the stylish celebs who are already showing off their mini skirt wardrobe? From monochrome looks to embellishments and statement prints, find out how to style the mini skirt according to the likes of Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Willow Smith, and 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.

Or go for a classic print, like plaid, but in a punchy pink hue, as seen on Zoey Deutch, who teamed her jacket and skirt with just a bra top.
Mini Skirt Outfit Idea No. 3: Add High Boots
It’s all about proportions when it comes to styling a mini skirt and its super short hemline goes nicely with a pair of tall boots. Kendall Jenner gave this trick a try with a black leather skirt and matching pointed boots.
