What are short dresses?
A short dress is exactly as it sounds, it’s a mini length or above the knee and often mid thigh dress.
From the classic mini dress that Mary Quant invented in the 1960s to those skimming above the knee, short dresses have come a long way and are a firm fashion favourite that’s here to stay.
Who should wear short dresses?
Short dresses are not off limits to anybody, any shape or any figure - so don’t be put off or worried about wearing them. Every woman should have a short dress in their wardrobe, and love wearing them!
If you’re looking for an ever classic style then choose a black short dress that will always flatter. It can be dressed up or
dressed down, but the classic noir shade is one that is universally loved and
can look stylish however you wear it.
For those wanting to show off their shape, a bodycon short dress can be a great way to flatter the figure.
More petite figures look great when they embrace colour and printed styles, and printed short dresses should be a go-to wardrobe staple for everyday style.
When should I wear short dresses?
Short dresses are an obvious go-to in summer but they can work all year round too. When the weather gets colder they can be paired with tights in winter and even layered over a long sleeve t-shirt or polo neck for a great style (even when it’s freezing!)
You might think short dresses and the office wouldn’t mix, but they can be a great workwear staple. A classic shift dress style can be worn with ballet pumps for each chic or a blazer for a style that will look smart at even the most corporate of meetings.
Plus there’s also evening short dresses, dinner styles and going out short dresses for formal events, parties and awards dos and even at weddings. In fact, there isn’t an event that a short style can’t be worn at, so have fun and dress up your short dress wherever you want to!
How should I wear short dresses? What pairs well with short dresses?
The fun part of styling a short dress is that there are so many amazing ways to style it, which can create so many different looks that it feels like you’re never repeating the same outfit.
Pair a short dress with a leather biker jacket for an effortless rock chick style that looks great on a date night as well as on a casual weekend look. Yet you can pair your short dress with a lounge cardigan or a wrap cardigan for a simple look that looks anything but thrown together.
Short dresses can also look great with a classic pair of heels for an easy formal look as well as heeled boots for autumn style. Reach for flip flops or sandals in summer or trainers for a sweet daytime style.
