Mega skirt alert: the mini is back! Oh we see you *gasping* while throwing your hands in the air and planning a customised chop on all your midis – the feeling is so mutual; this is big. After a short (lolz) hiatus, the mini has been given a new season update, ah-mazingly refreshed by Louis Vuitton's CD, Nicolas Ghesquière. And the woman to illustrate this new look? Miranda Kerr, who srsly did it justice at a LV Monogram event in New York this week. So what's the deal? Well, it's all about keeping your skirt as short as you dare, high-waisted and slightly flared. Metallics, suede and granny-curtain patterns in ghastly 70s shades are hot right now, and look out for detailing, like a ring-pull zip running down the front. Can't wait any longer? Check our best minis below.
