Mini and short dresses are not just a warm-weather look and can be styled as winter outfits when you pair with cold-weather accessories and apparel. For a casual vibe, layer on a chunky knit sweater or a fuzzy cardigan over a ribbed knit mini dress for a hot chocolate date with your girls. If you've got a dressy date night coming up, add on a faux leather moto jacket and tights to a sleek satin mini dress for an edgy-chic look. Windsor’s best-selling shapewear adds support under your short and mini dresses that can also provide an added layer in chilly conditions. For holiday parties, try a luxe velvet mini dress or a fitted short dress with ruched detailing and an asymmetrical hem that draws attention when worn under a long open trench coat or long sleeve duster. Short sweater dresses are a perfect option to wear as you ring in the new year outdoors by a fire. Get fancy and style up a fitted, long sleeve sequin short dress with an infinity scarf and thigh-high boots. Choose long sleeve tie front tops or cropped sweaters if you need added layers. Pick up knee-high or thigh boots to protect your legs from cold elements.
Are short dresses and mini dresses the same?
Short dresses and mini dresses have similar silhouettes but are not always the same. Short dresses can vary in length and fit depending on your body shape and height. Both can have a hem that falls on the thigh, but above the knee like with a skater dress. Short dresses can also vary in dimension when designed with side or front drawstrings or ruffle ruching. Windsor mini dresses are usually the shorter style and come in sexy designs with front slits, asymmetrical hems, or open backs and stylish necklines. If you need to choose between a short dress or a mini dress, it’s best to consider the type of event and where the dress falls on your leg. These quick tips will help you be in style comfortably and get compliments on your keen fashion sense.
Can short dresses be formal?
Short dresses are typically seen as less formal, but with certain attributes and features, you can totally wear them to a special occasion. Sequin, beaded, and heat stone embellishments elevate a short dress, as well as chic fabrics such as satin, velvet, glitter knit, and lace. Party dresses and skater dresses should be explored for special occasion events like homecoming, weddings, or graduations.
