You Said: Yes to Minidresses

August 3rd, 2009


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!

    I just don’t know if I can handle tights in the summer….

    As someone with a va-va-voom set of curves, I fear tulip skirts … but have to admit I’ve never tried one on!

    I absolutely love this dress – I actually sometimes wear spandex shorts underneath just to prevent any flashing of underwear but the dress with the tulip style skirt is so flattering on so many people (in my opinion!). And the nautical themed top is perfect for summer.

    I love the minidress. My legs are my favorite thing to show off and so I always wear a mini when I can! This Foley dress is one of my current favorites! It is on sale too—

    Comment on tulip skirts. Fab. Avoid on full hips, though. :) Anything that pegs or tapers in can make hips heftier.
