Mini Dress Fashion Statement Takes Front And Centre

If it's spring then it must be mini dress season, and 2009
is no exception to this rule. Regardless of how warm,
cold, rainy, or sunny the weather might be, celebrities and
stars are embracing the newest mini dress looks both on the
red carpet and in everyday life.

The recent Costume Institute Gala held at New York's
Metropolitan Museum of Art was a dress lover's paradise,
with tons of the world's best known stars showing up in a
huge array of mini dress fashions. From the simple
classics to the ultra modern, there was no shortage (no pun
intended) of "above the knee" dresses populating the red
carpet arrivals.

Actress Anne Hathaway harkened back to the 1960?s with her
combination of retro hair and a mini dress of lush purple
taffeta. The skirt was balloon-like rather than straight,
a fashion statement that few people could have pulled off
so successfully. Although the dress was certainly not the
kind to suit everyone's taste, Hathaway looked lovely

On the other end of the spectrum was Madonna. The
so-called "material girl" wore a dress that quite frankly
looked like a shrunken pair of pantaloons left over from
the Elizabethan age. The colour was not quite turquoise
but not quite green, instead falling somewhere in between
in a shade best described by the word "blah". All in all
the outfit just didn't work on any level, but there is a
bright side: Madonna?s fashion disaster offers a great
lesson to others who want to participate in the mini dress
trend without making major fashion mistakes.

If you want to wear a mini dress then you absolutely should
"go for it", as long as you have a good sense of what works
and what doesn't work on your own body. Unless you have a
huge amount of confidence and a picture-perfect figure it's
best to stay away from the modern/strange looks and instead
opt for the modern/classic looks. Choose a mini dress
that's about mid-thigh in length or slightly shorter, but
never so short that your bum hangs out the back or you
can't sit comfortably and modestly. If you?re looking for
a splash of colour consider a mini dress with a fun and
trendy print to it, like polka dots (big or small),
distinctive floral, or an all over bold colour like red,
royal blue, emerald green, or the like.

Of course, most of us simply want a mini dress that's
comfortable, stylish, and practical for everyday living, so
don't be afraid to shop around for more casual mini dress
styles. Jersey knits, cottons, linens, and rayon are all
great fabric choices when you're looking for a mini dress
to wear at work, while shopping, or just for casual comfort
and style.
