Welcome back to jasminediane.com! First things first, tell me what you think of my new site layout? Feel free to comment below or tweet me @thejasminediane your thoughts. Now that that's taken care of let's jump into today's post... How to Style A Mini Skirt When You're Almost 30 Years Old. Before we go any further.... I'm only 24 but I couldn't help myself. LOL

Sis, I'm in love with this mini skirt and knee high boots combo because it says, "I'm grown enough to order a drink but flirty enough to play like a schoolgirl." I have always loved skirts, but this one in particular reminded me of my high school cheerleading days. #nostalgia

Below I outline what makes this look a complete knock out:

Minimal Skin Showing

I'm a sucker for modesty, yet love to show a little leg. The minimal amount of leg showing paired with a turtleneck gives this outfit just enough sex appeal without screaming inappropriate. I'm all for women wearing what they want, but I'm also an advocate for keeping somethings a mystery. Also, you could totally throw on a pair of fishnets or tights if you wanted.

Dark Colors

The dark nature of this outfit screams, "I'm a grown woman" NOT a school girl. I can't get enough of dark lipsticks lately. Pairing this olive skirt with a black turtleneck, black knee high boots and a black leather jacket give this look a biker girl edge. A woman should never be predictable, so why stick to a soft colors dress code? I say switch things up and often, especially during the fall/winter months.

Confidence

Confidence is a game changer. When you look great, you feel great. I was super self conscious of my body when I was wearing this mini skirt and knee high boots combo because I felt a little naked. I'm always wondering what people think when I'm dressed and if my thunder thighs scream sex. Sigh. My photographer did a great job of making me realize that I am a grown woman with curves and I can wear short things without feeling like a video girl. By the end of our shoot, I didn't want to change. That's the difference a good word of confidence can do.

Questions

  1. What do you think of this outfit? Yay or Nay?
  2. Where would you wear this outfit to? Date? Shopping?

Sis, thank you so much for reading. Please do me a favor and share this post with your friends. Also, follow me on instagram and twitter @thejasminediane. You won't regret it. Peace.
