12 Iconic Mini Skirt Looks to Inspire Your Style

by Millie Richardson, Copywriter

Outshone in recent years by its longer sister, the midi, the mini skirt has started to take over wardrobes and subsequently our Instagram feeds again.

Yep, thanks to its prominence on the spring/summer 21 catwalks and the TikTok-led revival of Y2K fashion (where micro minis reigned supreme), the mini is reclaiming its staple status.

We couldn’t be happier about the comeback, of course. As, not only are minis incredibly cute and adaptable to any occasion, but they’re perfect for the fast-approaching bare-leg season.

So, to truly celebrate their return we’ve rounded up 12 of our favourite celebrity mini skirt moments – mini-spiration, if you will. Take a look…

Kate Moss wearing a grey mini skirt and Naomi Campbell wearing a tartan mini skirt

1. Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, 1993

Our fave 90s models redefined best friend goals when they both stepped out in mini skirt meets platform heels ensembles. And whether you love bright prints or glamourous details, there’s something for everyone to fawn over in this iconic image.

Halle Berry wearing a leather look mini skirt and sequin top

2. Halle Berry, 2001

This 00s Halle Berry look is giving us all the inspo we need for our next night out-out. After all, nothing says ‘party time’ quite like leather-look and sparkles.

Britney Murphy wearing a satin mini skirt, pink jacket and heels

3. Britney Murphy, 2002

Another 00s mini skirt moment we can’t help but be obsessed with. Seriously, look at how well Brittany Murphy coordinates her heels, jewellery and jacket to her satin mini. Consider your next drinks-with-the-girls outfit sorted.

Victoria Beckham wearing a brown mini skirt, white t-shirt and heels

4. Victoria Beckham, 2004

Even in 2004, Victoria Beckham was teaching us how to style neutrals, pairing a brown mini with a white tee and tan accessories for a casual-chic look.

Kylie Minogue wearing a sparkly mini skirt and metallic knee high boots

5. Kylie Minogue, 2002

Festivals, please hurry back, we need an excuse to rock a Kylie Minogue-inspired diamanté mini skirt. And oh, if only we could swap muddy wellies for metallic knee-highs

Claudia Schiffer wearing a silver mini skirt and matching jacket and boots with pastel knitwear

6. Claudia Schiffer, 1994

This Claudia Schiffer ensemble might date back to the 90s, but style stars including Alexa Chung are still copying it to this day. Softening the head-to-toe metallic with a pastel knit is simply genius.

Mariah Carey wearing a denim mini skirt and logo tank top

7. Mariah Carey, 2001

It doesn’t get much more 2000s than this Mariah Carey combo of a denim skirt, logo tank and strappy heels. Also, how amazing is it that she’s holding a CD player as if it’s the latest Gucci bag?

Kylie Bax wearing a black mini skirt and strappy cami top

8. Kylie Bax, 2001

Kylie Bax’s red carpet outfit from 20 years ago looks like it was taken straight out of Bella Hadid’s wardrobe. From the ruched mini to the strappy cami, the ensemble has ‘made for Instagram’ written all over it.

Patricia Arquette wearing an animal print mini skirt in True Romance

9. Patricia Arquette in True Romance, 1993

Turns out, Patricia Arquette was wearing cow print before it was cool – well, at least her character in True Romance (1993) was. Her bright blue accessories and matching bra really makes the print pop.

Paris Hilton wearing a denim mini skirt and blue crochet top

10. Paris Hilton, 2002

Paris Hilton was a huge player in tiny denim skirts dominating the 00s. Here, she wears one with Instagram’s favourite: a crochet top.

Christina Aguilera wearing a denim mini skirt and barely-there top

11. Christina Aguilera, 2002

It’s fair to say Christina Aguilera was also partial to a denim skirt in the 00s. But, as the cool superstar she is, she pairs hers with a chain belt and barely-there top.

Alicia Silverstone wearing a patterned mini skirt in Clueless

12. Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, 1995

One of the most iconic mini skirts of all time has to be Cher Horowitz’s check number in Clueless (1995). Cher is the reigning queen of preppy dressing - sorry, Blair Waldorf - and soon, our number 1 source for back-to-the-office outfit inspo.
