One advantage of being small is that short skirts which may scream ‘mutton’ on others can actually look quite respectable, indeed stylish, on us. There is no danger of hems skimming that fine line between decency and pornographic. For those of us of a smaller height, mini-skirts are never really off the table as an option.
Now clearly, I haven’t lost the plot entirely. I’m talking about a short skirt for winter. I mean one that would involve the addition of heavy opaque tights with boots or shoots. Complete preservation of modesty (and concealment of skin) at all times.
I’m talking about this utterly divine Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie leather skirt. What really won me over, are the pockets on both sides. This takes this skirt out of the dressier realm and immediately I thought of just how gorgeous it would look if paired with a chunky knit and biker boots. Or a denim shirt, opaques and Chelsea boots. Or a white tux blazer, opaques and shoots. The possibilities are endless.
