How To Wear a Mini Skort To Work

Let's tackle a stylish challenge: How can you transform your beloved mini skorts into office-appropriate attire? It's no easy feat, especially when they lean toward the shorter side. But fear not, we've cracked the code on navigating the office dress protocol while incorporating mini skorts into several chic looks.

Whether you're savoring the final days of summer or eager to embrace cozy sweaters, smart style combinations are key to maintaining a professional edge with your mini skort ensembles. Consider incorporating timeless wardrobe essentials to complement the thigh-skimming silhouette. Think classic printed blazers, crisp button-down shirts, sweater vests, and chunky footwear ranging from loafers to Mary Janes.

And we understand that an abbreviated hemline might not be everyone's comfort zone, especially in a professional setting. No worries because we've gathered plenty of mid-thigh options that exude a polished, versatile vibe. If we could style activewear to the office, then we can also wear mini skorts to make them office-ready and exude a powerhouse style.

How to Style Mini Skorts for the Office

During the warmer spring and summer seasons, above-the-knee skirts can add both versatility and style to your work wardrobe. Yet, navigating their appropriate wear in the office might give rise to uncertainty. Hence, here are some tips to help you confidently incorporate a mini skort into your work attire.

Before anything else, remember to consider your workplace's dress code when selecting your attire. If your workplace adheres to a more formal dress code, above-the-knee skorts may not be deemed appropriate.

Show who's the boss in a blazer.

Layering plays a pivotal role in styling a mini skort for the workplace. Combine our Laureate Tennis Mini Skort with a blazer or cardigan to cultivate a professional and refined appearance because nothing else spells the "I'm-the-boss" vibe and a heightened level of refinement other than a blazer. Simply adding one works wonders. An eye-catching, oversized blazer can swiftly elevate your mini skort ensemble from casual to meeting-ready.

Balance out the proportions with an oversized hoodie.

Create a makeshift LBD.

Combine a dressy black top with our black Flyleaf V Crisscross High-Rise Skort, tucking the top into the skirt for a streamlined cinch, effortlessly turning the black-on-black ensemble into a makeshift LBD.

Keep it simple but sassy with a tee.

In the creative industry, dress codes tend to be more flexible than in other workplaces, offering freedom in attire. So who's to say that cropped tops or blouses are your sole choices for pairing?

A black or white tee can exude equal sophistication when paired with the Laureate 3" Bow Skort. Just remember to accessorize to elevate your look and steer clear of appearing too simplistic.

Go with a button-down top.

As much as the mini skort can elevate a casual tee, it can also bring a relaxed vibe to your staple office top.

Combine the Laureate Quick-Dry Skorts with a crisp white button-down to craft a laid-back yet refined outfit perfect for a coffee date or an afternoon shopping excursion with your friends.

Pair with similar shades to your mini skort.

Lessen skin exposure with slouchy boots.

Sporting tall boots with shafts extending beyond ankle territory might seem daring to some, yet the ensemble exudes undeniable chicness—particularly when paired with our Sustainable A-Line Skort. These slouchy leather boots provide a proportional balance to shorter hemlines, elongating legs and offering a modest yet stylish flair.

Wrap your legs with leggings, tights, or hosiery as an additional layer.

Baleaf Laureate Pleated Tennis Skorts

Wear leggings, tights, or dark hosiery underneath your favorite activewear mini skort to achieve a professional and polished appearance, maintaining a ladylike demeanor. This combination offers coverage, ensuring adherence to workplace dress codes, particularly in more conservative environments. Go for darker or skin-colored leggings sans prints or patterns for a discreet and sophisticated look when pairing with our Laureate Pleated Tennis Skorts.

Embrace chunky sweaters for fall and winter.

Baleaf Laureate High-Rise Pocketed A-Line Skort

Curious about transitioning your mini skort into fall and winter? A dependable chunky knit sweater offers added warmth and comfort while mixing textures ensures a captivating ensemble.

Whether you prefer an oversized silhouette half-tucked into our Laureate High-Rise Pocketed A-Line Skort or a more relaxed style with the sweater fully untucked, there are various styling options to explore. Consider a slimmer silhouette fully tucked in or embrace the trendy chunky sweater vest layered over a collared shirt for a chic alternative.

Pick the right footwear.

Baleaf Laureate 17" Straight Swim Skort

Select footwear that complements both your ensemble and the occasion. Choose closed-toe heels (three inches or lower), slingback kitten heels, or flats when pairing with our Laureate 17" Straight Swim Skort for a professional look at work. Avoid higher heels, as they may give the illusion of a shorter skirt length.

Rock Your Mini Skort to the Office

Although embracing the itty-bitty style of skorts might feel like a departure for those accustomed to comfort-focused wardrobes, contemporary interpretations of the mini skort are advocating for its inclusion in everyday wear. With a variety of styles and cuts available, confidently showcase how to wear a skort to your coworkers by exploring our Women's Skorts collection.
