How short is too short? That’s the question always popping in my mind whenever I am about to buy a new mini dress or skirt. I’m usually a midi dress kind of person, but this cute little one stole my heart. I’ve seen so many different polka dotted dresses this summer that I thought I should add one to my wardrobe. It might be the shortest dress I own, but somehow it was too cute to let go. Not having a problem with minis, but due to my skin problem, I am not able to wear certain things. However, during the weekend I fully embraced my flaws and stopped thinking of folliculitis. It’s not as bad as it used to be, in fact 80% of it is gone after following an IPL treatment. Anyways, besides the above mentioned, some of us don’t feel comfortable wearing minis after a certain age. Why so? Probably because they don’t seem appropriate anymore, or they look childish etc. The reasons can vary from person to person, but today I thought I should share three fail proof tips on how to make them look more appropriate.
1. Shoes matter
Opt for sneakers, flats or a pair of low heeled shoes. Don’t go running after your sky high heels, chances are they will look bad together.
If you are baring your legs, covering your arms will help balance up the entire look. Go for a long sleeved mini dress instead of a short sleeved one.
3. Style it with a small bag
Mini dresses and mini bags might be a match made in heaven. Style your mini with a micro bag and you’ll thank me later.
Those are the three fail proof rules I always follow when wearing a mini dress and I really hope they will help you too. How would you wear a mini dress?
