It's Going to Be a Minidress Summer—29 That Are So Chic

Micro hemlines are already trending hard in 2023, and I’m predicting that it will be a minidress summer. It was a major piece on the S/S 23 runways, and we’re already seeing fashion insiders lean into it heavily. Right now, knee-high boots are a piece the fashion set is pairing with short dresses, which I expect we’ll see more of as we head into the new season. Heels and flats will also be in the mix as we enter summer.

There isn’t one particular silhouette to invest in but rather a range of cool minidress styles that are popping up right now. From trend-forward pieces with cutouts and in bold colors to more classic styles like minimal ’90s-inspired silhouettes and simple strapless styles, there is sure to be one you’ll love. Ahead, I’m rounding up the cute minidresses I’d recommend adding to your shopping cart.
