Trend Alert: Micro Minis

July 26, 2007 by SheFindsTara

What: Dresses so short you better get a Brazilian before wearing them.

Why: Cameron, Penelope, Jessica… these celebrities just can’t stop flaunting those great gams of theirs in uber-short frocks. If you have legs like theirs, then by all means, glam it up and strut your stuff in one of this summer’s hottest styles: the mini dress. But if you have a less than gorgeous set of stems, we’d advise to cover up a touch more and opt for a longer hemline. The same goes for mature women — there just comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to say adieu to all things mini.

If you really want to wear a mini dress before summer is out (WWD reminds us that this short style is also short-lived and won’t make it into the fall fashion lineup) go for a voluminous, empire waisted or babydoll style and wear it over leggings.

Below, find a selection of some ultra-hot, scintillatingly short styles that will look stylish and feel cool in the heat for all those ready to rock the trend.

P.S. Try not to drop anything and avoid wearing to dinner — this look is best for wearing dancing or mingling at a fancy lounge.
