Six Stunning Minidresses Under $100

What goes with sun and summer?  The minidress.  It’s effortlessly chic–and perfect for warm weather.  We’re finding great minidresses featuring detailing from ruffles to embroidery, bows to painted prints.  Even better, they’re inexpensive (especially as compared to Fall clothes).  Here’s six stunning minidresses under $100:

Printed Hammered Lawn Ruffle Dress | $73 at Tulle
What we love: The gorgeous print and the pretty ruffle detailing at the neckline.

Kimchi Blue Silk Embroidered Neck Dress | $68 at Urban Outfitters
What we love: The vampy feel of this embroidered dress.  Though, it is Really Short, so you may want to wear something under it.  We’d wear it belted over dark colored skinny jeans.

Patterned Voile Neck Tie Dress | $58 at Tulle
What we love: The bright, sunny color and the adorable bow.

belted-painted-flower-dress2_080209
Belted Painted Flower Dress | $22.80 at Forever 21
What we love: The boldness of the painted flower print.  Again, you may want to wear something under this one so as to not show off too much leg.

Sport Tank Dress | $17.80 at Forever 21
What we love: The mix of casual and sophisticated with the tee-like tank and the pencil thin skirt.

You Said: Yes to Minidresses

nautical-stripe-dress_080209We asked: Would you wear a Minidress?

You said:  Yes to Minidresses, with a 54% to 46% vote.

Style tip? We love the minidress–it’s the epitome of breezy chic.  While it’s great for women with gorgeous legs, it can still work for those of us who don’t have a perfect bottom half.  If you’re looking to make your legs longer and leaner, try wearing tights underneath your minidress.  You’ll see an extra slimming effect with dark colored tights.  Another option for those of us who are less inclined to show off our legs is to wear the minidress over leggings or skinny pants.

Next question: The Tulip Skirt features gathers at the waistline and a slimmer silhouette at the hem.  And we’re seeing it all over.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear a Tulip Skirt?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!
