Maxi dresses will always be summer staples thanks to their cool and comfy personalities. But the silhouette isn’t completely effortless when you factor in hems dusting dirty sidewalks and the tripping potential — especially if you’re petite. So we’re opting to embrace its shorter cousin: the minidress.
Minidresses can be just as breezy as maxis with the shorter hemlines allowing you to feel the wind on your bare legs and show off your warm-weather footwear. Anything from platform sandals to pastel shoes to white boots work with a summery minidress.
