It was 1964 when the mini skirt appeared for the first time thanks to Mary Quant and André Courreges, the inventors of a piece of clothing destined to revolutionize the fashion and the role of women for evermore. This small piece of fabric, that become the symbol of women’s emancipation, for the spring summer 2019 is proposed in very short versions. Sometimes even too short, up to seems just something more than a belt that completely unveils the legs for a very sexy look.
The funniest variants for the summer outfits bet on colors and prints and could be combined both to casual t-shirts than to the tailored jacket for an unusual and bold style. Pastel colors, in tender shades that go from pink to lilac and pale yellow, are present in the catwalks of Blumarine and Blugirl, which propose draped models with sporty details. Among the neutrals, very trendy colors of this season, at J.W. Anderson the nude effect pink is made more particular with three-dimensional decorations, while the beige is chosen for the leather mini skirts of Emilia Wickstead.
