Julia Roberts shows you how to style a miniskirt for your 50s.


Julia Roberts proves that miniskirts can be worn by anyone. The actress is busting the myth that you shouldn’t wear miniskirts after a certain age and showing us that they’re a timeless staple in any wardrobe. And we’re all for it! 

Roberts wore her timeless style to the SeriousFun New York City Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center earlier this month. Roberts was serious as she displayed her seriousness about having fun by wearing a chic outfit with stripes-on-stripes. 

Roberts wore a two-piece set consisting of a gray-striped blazer and a matching miniskirt. Under the blazer, Roberts wore a matching striped necktie with classic white buttons down. The actress finished her look with an oversized, striped jacket in gray and white as well as navy, navy, and a pop of yellow. 

Here are the four key elements to styling your miniskirt

At 55, Roberts isn’t afraid to bust traditional fashion trends. The skirt from her ensemble—a gray and white striped mini with a cuffed hem by Thom Browne—is showing us how to best style one at any age. These key elements will help you to be on-trend with this timeless classic.

1. Wear tights

Roberts chose to match her miniskirt with black tights for the cool November evening. This style tip is how Roberts shows us how to stay warm this fall while still being fashionable. We all have to have tights in our wardrobes.

2. Choose Structured Pieces

Another lesson from Roberts’ ensemble that works for any age is that by pairing the mini with structured pieces, you can bring an outfit to the next level. You’ll not only look ravishing in a fitted blazer paired with an Oxford shirt and necktie, but you’ll also sport a look that will prove to be sensible this breezy season.

3. Maintain the Top Modest

The Paradise TicketStar perfectly illustrated how to keep the miniskirt classic. A modest top is all you need. Roberts chose a simple top, even though it was stripes-on-stripes.

4. Trust the Pointy Toe Heels

The final key to styling your mini skirt ensemble is by ensuring that your shoes are on point—literally! By opting for a classic pair of pointy shoes that match your tights, just as Roberts did, you’ll enhance the original point of a miniskirt by keeping the focus on your elongated legs. The mini will remain the main focus of your ensemble.
