Why Wear A Mini Dresses?
Gone are the days when mini dresses were strictly for summer – thanks to ‘70s and ‘80s fashion trends, they’ve been making a comeback for quite some time. The fun, flirtatious feeling that comes with a mini dress is timeless, and its low necklines and elastic waistbands make it the perfect choice for the casual Friday or day date. Plus, they’re great for air-conditioned environments (which is a rare find in this sweltering weather) and perfect for making a statement at a summer wedding. Plus, they’re the easiest pieces to wear from day to night – no need to layer an oversize blazer or a sweater with the dress to really make it work as an evening outfit. They’re as easy and functional as your favorite yoga pants or leggings, so when you’re busy, you’ll still be working with style.
The Best Time To Wear Mini Dresses
One important thing to keep in mind about wearing mini dresses is that you should always make sure they are part of your overall outfit. A mini dress is a great opportunity to mix in the accessory you have, get comfortable in a hot summer dress, or try a new trend in an easy and comfortable way.

And while you can wear them year-round, some of our options have shorter hemlines, more lightweight fabrics, or thicker stockings, so they’ll give you a little more coverage and a slightly different look. Choosing the best mini dress for your body type can be tricky, as each body type is a little bit different. But one great place to start is with our seven body types – figure, petite, curvy, tall, short and slim. From there, look at the shapes of the dresses below.
The Most Popular Mini Dress Styles
There are loads of choices when it comes to mini dresses, from timeless favorites to trendy styles. The number one style has always been the maxi dress, a must for any summer look, and a must-have for any cool-weather look. To be perfectly honest, most women would admit that they love a maxi dress for summer (it’s less bulky than a miniskirt, less restrictive than a dress). For the holidays or autumn/winter, try a chiffon mini dress, a loose-fitting dress like this floral one from Anthropologie or this one from The Limited. If you’re looking for something a little more clingy, try this one from Ann Taylor. Now that the weather has cooled down, you may be looking for a little extra color, texture and pattern in your mini dresses.
How To Find The Perfect Mini Dress

Every woman has a different body shape, and clothing sizes are based on a chart based off your height. Some women are tall and some are petite. Some women are pear shaped and others are more hourglass shaped. And even if you’re a little bigger or smaller than your body type, there is a perfect dress out there for you. Take into account your weight, whether you’re petite or plus size, and most importantly – your shape. If you’re a high school student, there is a size that will be perfect for you, but for the rest of us, there are hundreds of styles in every store. So, narrowing down your options is the hardest part. Luckily, we’ve got you covered.
