A mini dress is an absolute must have item in your wardrobe. However, it is not enough to own one, you actually have to know how to wear it to make it look great on your body. There are a few tips you can use to help you style and wear your mini dress. Keep these tips in mind when you get ready for your next big event.
The Whole Look
First, a mini dress is so short and shows so much skin all over your body, that you have to think about the whole look you are putting together to make it work. For example, try on your mini dress in front of a full length mirror to get the full effect. The trick is to make the dress look balanced from your head to your toes. You can achieve a balanced look by choosing the right accessories and shoes.
A Strapless Mini Dress
If you have strong, gorgeous shoulders, then you may want to choose a strapless mini dress. This look is perfect for going to clubs or out on dates. However, you will be showing a lot of arm and leg in this dress, so be sure to choose shoes that match that theme. For example, a great pair of heels with a peep toe design would work perfectly. You can even add bracelets on both wrists for some added arm coverage to keep you from looking too bare. Choose lots of clunky bracelets for more coverage.
If you are wearing closed toe shoes with your mini dress, then you must think about wearing tights with your mini dress as the perfect accessory. If your mini dress is a solid color, you can add a pair of bold, colorful tights to add visual interest to your outfit. If your mini dress already features a lot of colors or bold prints, you can choose basic black tights. If you want a really modern look, choose a pair of tights that features a print on them. For example, you might choose tights that feature cute hearts for a fun look. The opportunities with tights are endless.
A Small Bag
When you wear a mini dress, you have to choose the perfect bag to go with it. You cannot wear a large or bulky bag with a mini dress, or the bag will steal the show and detract from the dress. It is a better idea to choose a small handbag. One idea is to choose a sequined handbag in a color that contrasts the dress just to add a pop of color to the outfit. One other cute idea is to choose sparkly nail polish that matches the sequins on the bag for a cohesive look that shines.
Don’t forget to stand up straight and hold your head up high when you wear a mini dress. This look requires a lot of self confidence because you will attract a lot of attention. Also, smile in the spotlight!
