And yet it happens we completely forget about it or consciously decide to overlook this rule when we see a beautiful skirt hanging there in a store. How not to? But will we be able to wear a mini skirt for the office the next day? Well, only if we buy it today.

I know, you must have said: “WTF is a smart mini skirt”. Yes, a smart professional mini skirt is a thing. And yes, a business mini skirt is the skirt I’m wearing in these photos. The tweed skirt.

TWEEDY MINI SKIRT

Gabrielle Chanel knew well that there is a power in the tweed or “two-threaded” fabric. This remarkable material makes any piece of clothing looks chic, fashionable and moreover sophisticated. Fit for office as well as the street.

Honestly, I can’t think of any other clothes that would need so little styling to achieve a chic, modern and smart look, then anything tweedy, right now.

Obviously, the easiest way to wear the mini tweed skirt to the office is to combine it with a simple silk shirt (mine is from Iris&Ink – buy here).
