Frilled, fierce, and oh-so darling, the coquette aesthetic is everything we love in a minidress. With summer's arrival — it's here! It's here! — we're all about positioning warm-weather staples center stage — hello, short sleeves, skinny straps, short hemlines, and airy fabrics. But because trending aesthetics have a hold over us time and again (sorry, not sorry), the coquette look is precisely the energy needed to kick off our fave season.

Now, if you need to become more familiar with this vibe, let us break it down. Basically, we're talking about minidresses oozing with femme features like floral prints, frills, bows, ruffles, lace, and pastel shades (obviously pink is a signature!). If you live for Bridgerton's iconic romanticism look, this aesthetic is for you. Likewise, if you're known to favor a bit of old-world-level dramatics, consider this your melodramatic sign. Cue all the fainting and pouty little stomps, and grab your pearls, hair bows, elegant handbags, and charming footwear — they're the ideal finishing touches to the 13 coquette-style minidresses ahead.
