It’s a fact: Post-August temperatures taper off and dip below leg-baring levels if you live anywhere that’s not sunny So-Cal, but that’s no excuse for not owning — and sporting — at least one mini skirt this season. How convenient for you that I should choose three favourites to feature. Pair with tights and sky-high platforms or well-heeled boots for the most long-legged effect.

1. Thakoon — A sweet and unique take on the mini, Thakoon’s feather-seamed skirt is cold-wind ready with a strong and thick jacquard print. Besides the fabulous feather-inspired pattern, this mini also boasts feather-shaped satin piping.

2. Derek Lam — First, he’s a genius. Second, this skirt is so costume-y, and I LOVE IT. For real. Who ever knew that felt — not silk, not satin — could be so super glam, what with its fantastical tiers, banded waist, and tonal topstitching?

3. JCrew — Though I’ve never been a prep-school, Birkenstock-wearing kind of girl, lately JCrew has impressed me by branching out into more wearable — non-college — fashions. This cashmere-infused, patch-pocket mini sits low on the waist and has a slight A-line shape to hide any fuller-figure mishaps. And it’s affordable. Go figure.
