How to Look Good in a Mini Dress

Mini dresses have a different fan base. There is something so incredibly freeing about swinging your bare legs in the summertime and being able to dance all night without worrying about stepping on anyone’s toes. It can also be very intimidating, however. Never let the fear of revealing too much skin or not having the "correct body" stop you from wearing what you want! Like anything else, there are tricks to make a mini dress work for you! 

Do not forget that you can still look good wearing your mini dresses even if you are not quite ready for a makeover or even a basic style change!

Look for an A-line mini dress!

Whether you are trying to find something to wear for the night or a brunch with friends, there is no better way than wearing a mini dress. When it comes to choosing the perfect dress for you, one thing is certain, A-line dresses are the way to go.

The flared skirt can fit anyone and look flattering on any body type (even if they are not curvy). Since they are not tight around the waist, they won't make you feel uncomfortable during your day-to-day activities.

If you are petite like me, then pencil skirts may not be ideal since they can make us look even shorter than we already are! That is why we prefer A-line dresses because of their flattering nature, as well as how easy it is to walk in them!

Choose a fun pattern or a solid color

The first step to looking good in a mini dress is choosing a pattern that matches your personality. There are many patterns to choose from, so pick one that reflects who you are and what makes you stand out. If you are an animal lover, try going for something with stripes or floral prints. If you love the ocean like we do (and if you want to wear a strappy black dress), maybe try going for something with sea creatures on it!

You can also stick with solid colors when choosing the pattern of your mini dress, allowing more emphasis on how flattering it is—no need to compete with other elements on top of that! Solid colors work well no matter what shade they are; whether it is light pink or dark blue, these will pair well together because they complement each other nicely. It's important not just because it helps draw attention away from areas where we do not want them but also because it shows off our style too!

Wear the right shoes


You want your outfit to look complete, so do not forget about your shoes. You can wear any shoe you like (as long as it is not black, grey, or brown), but if you want to make sure that your ensemble feels cohesive and looks beautiful, here are a few tips:

  • Wear a pair of shoes that complement the color of your short dress. No matter what color your dress is—whether it's bright red or more muted like khaki—you should be able to find something in another shade to go with it! This will help create an overall look that flows together nicely without being too matchy-matchy.
  • Make sure they are the same color as one other thing on you. If all else fails and there is no other object in sight that matches well enough, try not to wear something excessively bright or flashy because those colors not only clash more than most others but also distract attention away from whatever else is going on around us.

Now you know how to look great in a mini dress! You can show off those toned legs, and have fun with this cute style. Minis are perfect for any occasion: date night, hanging out with friends, or a party. Just remember to keep it classy by making sure your dress hits above the knee. And always wear shoes that flatter your figure. With just a little practice and some careful planning, you will be able to look amazing whenever you are wearing a minidress!
