The Season's Trends
Hugging the figure or flared, plain or patterned, the main thing is that it's short. The mini dress has been an inspiration since the Sixties in innumerable variations, cuts and colours. And what has made the mini dress so popular for more than 50 years now? It spotlights the legs, flatters the figure and makes a charming, feminine impact without going over the top. At the very top of the hit list are the sheath dresses and A-line cuts of the Swinging Sixties.
What to wear with mini dresses
The colours and patterns of a mini dress naturally play an important role in this Sixties trend. But that doesn't mean it has to be a bright flower-power pattern. Contrasting black-and-white prints, or subtle graphic designs in pastel colours like brown and rose pink, make a stylish impact that is not too bold. High platform pumps, wedge sandals or knee-high boots with a low heel go perfectly.
An extra tip
And if you really want to go for a bold look, choose single-colour items in the typical Sixties colours orange and yellow. But then it's advisable to show restraint with the accessories. Or you can turn the colour game around and style a mini dress in muted blue with a gaudy accessory, a bright yellow patent-leather bag, for example. That's the way to show off your fashion expertise without looking too flashy.
