It’s nearly summer! The weather is heating up, and people are heading out, marking the return of leg-baring minidresses. It’s no news that the midi-dress has reigned supreme in recent years, and while love for longline dresses will not falter, it’s time to make room for shorter hemlines this summer. The spring runways featured fun and carefree mini silhouettes that felt lighthearted (not to mention heat-wave-friendly). The punchy, printed, and preppy iterations that graced the runways at Miu Miu, Khaite, and Jacquemus felt like an official stamp of optimism.
The best minidresses on the market are versatile and can be worn from day to night effortlessly. Where last year’s crop was mostly floaty, romantic, and a comfort-first reprieve from loungewear, this year’s include bold-colored bodycon and crocheted iterations, too. Simply swap a flat shoe like a sneaker or a sandal into something heeled, and you’re instantly party-ready.
Here, shop minidresses that will keep you looking and feeling cool all summer long.
