As the flirtier cousin of the denim trousers and the preppier sister of the shorts, the mini skirt has earned its right as one of the 'casual look' wardrobe staples. Heavily inspired by the space-age and futuristic trend of the '60s but still used a lot in this day and age, it's safe to say that this fashion piece isn't going out of style anytime soon. But how exactly do you ace styling the most daring hemline in fashion history? Leave it to our Clozetters to show you.
Met Gala theme and it girl collaborations
We've come to the end of another week, but it doesn't mean the fun bits of news from the worlds of fashion and beauty are stopping. Here are things you need to know right now.
Met Gala '19 Theme
The theme for next year's Met Gala has been announced, and, friends, it is "camp." Inspired by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on 'Camp'", the showcase will focus on how designers sometimes use humour to convey their messages through their pieces. If you're a bit confused, just think of Off-White by Virgil Abloh and Jeremy Scott's Moschino.
ZALORA x It Girls
ZALORA Philippines has collaborated with the country's top social media mavens — Georgina Wilson-Burnand, Isabelle Daza-Semblat, Liz Uy and Solenn Heusaff-Bolzico — on a fashion collection called the___edit. You can now shop the line, whose prices range between PHP999 and PHP2999, here.
Coffee To Go, No Syrup
Beauty and makeup make the perfect combination. And we're glad that Etude House agrees because they have just released the Coffee To Go, No Syrup collection, which includes an eyeshadow palette, lipsticks and blusher.

After creating what is sometimes dubbed as the Rolls Royce of hair dryers, Dyson has just released a new hair tool. The Dyson Airwrap is a styling tool that can give your hair curls, waves and even straighten it without the use of too much heat.

Piers are structures in a body of water, and they make the perfect backdrop for an OOTD. Visit your nearest dock and open lakes or rivers and you just might find the perfect shoot location. In this curation, the Clozetters show how charming piers are in contrast with their lovely fashion ensembles.
