Back in 2022, designers from Fendi to Versace, revived the micro miniskirt. Miu Miu stole the show on the spring/summer runway, debuting a utilitarian take on the mini with teeny-tiny proportions not much thicker than a wide belt. The references to Y2K were strong, and although the micro miniskirt has divided opinions, even now booming sales are evidence of its popularity. I predict 2024 will see the micro mini makes waves like never before, with more designers and high-street retailers offering up styles for all tastes and budgets.
The years 2000 to 2003 were the heyday for micro miniskirts, with pop culture icons such as Christina Aguilera, Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford being captured out and about in styles no wider than a few inches, give or take. The era was synonymous with female empowerment, expressed through playful styling and barely-there clothes.
