The short dress – a timeless classic.
One hundred years ago, dresses that covered only half of the thighs were considered to be inappropriate and provocative. But today these kinds of dresses are an indispensable part in the wardrobes of mainly young women in the Western world. In the 1960’s, the mini dress literally triggered a revolution
in fashion and was (in classic A-line
and without a deep décolleté) a symbol for the zeitgeist and life style. It was still provocative but that was exactly what made it much more interesting for many women. Today, there are many different varieties of mini dresses: tight-cut, fluent, with peplum or without, made from all different kinds of materials and in various cuts.
Always well-dressed – wearing little.
Here at Ana Alcazar, short dresses are also an important part of every collection. If you wear size 8
, you can’t actually go wrong with a mini dress. Short dresses amazingly emphasise beautiful legs and they are, especially when it’s really hot outside, absolutely indispensable
. Still, it’s always important that dresses (particularly ones with only little fabric) are well-styled; so, you are well-advised to for example refrain from a deep neckline, in order to always be dressed well and appropriately. More mature ladies and women beyond size 10 don’t have to be afraid of short dresses, as you can also wear them for instance as long top with leggings
or skinny jeans underneath. Furthermore, in this case it’s advisable to rather choose a lightly flowing and figure-flattering piece, instead of a tight-fit one. If this is still too daring for you, why don’t you take a look at our section for knee-length- and midi dresses
The short dress: a real all-rounder.
The mini dress is a particularly welcome guest on the beach and thus it is often to be found in our category of beach dresses. On top of a bikini, a mini dress is a simple and pretty outfit for a relaxed day on the beach. The perfect accessories are sometimes only a pair of cool sunglasses and sandals
: what a laid-back, smooth look! And also at fine cocktail parties, short dresses, combined with noble shoes and a nice jacket are always a great choice. You make your legs appear longer, an effect you can even enhance by wearing high shoes: Voilà – an elegant and sexy outfit! In a sequined mini dress you will definitely make heads turn with your elegant and glamorous look when you’re having a night out at a bar or a club. Even in winter, a very short dress just looks great if you combine it with woollen stockings, a nice scarf
and boots. If you are not quite sure, which cut and length will suit you best, you can always contact our customer service. We are more than glad to help.
