Dress You Up! Mini Dresses

For those who have legs and know how to use them, this is your time to shine. You've been living under a rock if you didn't notice that mini dresses are hot hot hot for Spring. This week I'm all about Dress You Up! and getting you all prepared for the dress surplus of the season.

You will notice my picks are solids with details like rosettes, trim, volume and pockets. I think the classiest way to wear a mini is with dignity; keep the pattern simple and modern and let your legs work it. Just my opinion but when sporting a raised hemline, the most stylish way is to be subtly sexy. One of my mottos is: if you've got it, flaunt it. So lucky leggy gals, these are for you.

Shift Dress with Rosettes by 3.1 by Phillip Lim, $368.

A few more,

Vivienne Tam Candy Apple Eyelet Mini Dress, $295.

Splendid Heather Pocket Tank Mini Dress, $122.

AKA New York Empire Button Dress, $255.

I'm in love with the first and last dresses. So much that I'm looking online to find ones that are similar but with lower price tags.

i saw this post recently on jamie-lyn sigler (meadow from the sopranos) where she was wearing this uber-cute black off-the-shoulder mini dress. whiplashgirlchild posted a more affordable version that i would even venture to say was cuter. can't wait to get my paycheck and buy it -- i'm all about this mini-dress trend. and yes, jamee ro, i too am petite (5'1") and think it will be a flattering look. most regular length dresses leave me swimming in them. now if i could just find where i left my motivation to go the gym (and assemble my bike) to work off those winter pounds so i can wear these darn things....

agreed with the "Just Say NO to rosettes" comments! i just can't dig them. but i absolutely LOVE the Splendid Heather dress. the thing that sucks is that if you have big ta-tas like mine, they won't fit (unless you want your boobs spilling out!) or they cut you off in the middle of the chest. :(

I totally disagree with you, JustMe21! I think they're perfect for us petite gals! Most trends swallow me up (I'm 5'2"), so I think the mini dress is so flattering! And hot heels/wedges are definitely in order... The best things in life are free. The second best are expensive.

They're ok. I think these dresses are only made for the tall slender short folks would look rediculous in them.

I have seen so many in big bold prints. I am just not a large print gal! I think a solid in a beautiful color would be great.

I agree, Wicked. I've seen much cuter ones than this particular selection.

I like mini-dresses but if I ever see another rosette I will die. (Angela from Project Runway's fault)
