How To Wear A Mini.
Sometimes the dress wears you.
We all own a couple of these frocks that defy my number one style rule:Wear the dress. Don't let the dress wear you.
This flouncy mini from Maurie and Eveis one such dress.
On first look it's a cool LBD.
But add the sleeves, the frill and neoprene and it's something else all together.
You're a hot minute from a midnight tango in a bar in Buenos Aires.
I was in Bondi but in my mind I was in South America.
Such is the power of a good mini dress.
This is a great seasonless buy which is appropriate for my vintage because the top is as covered as you can get without a jacket.
Which BTW looks love cover the top of this with the sleeve poking out.
If you have been looking for a mini skirt moment.
This is it.
The Watch List.
1: Watch The Wind: This is KEY. When wearing a short skirt you need to think about the fact that what's underneath could be visible if the wind picks up. So never, ever a g-string. Opt for full brief or boy leg underpantsin the same colour as the dress.
2. Watch Your Heel Height: Flats paired with a mini skirt are right for every age. Night and day. Stilettos and a mini skirt are for night only (and even then you need to one careful). Ankle boots - with a low block heel - are great way of taking the obviousness out of a mini skirt. I like them in the colour of the dress or in a neutral to match your skin tone. These are on sale now. Free. BUY IT: Spurr Nicole Ankle Boot, $55.95 from The Iconic.
3. Watch Your Proportions:When you're exposing a lot of leg, it's a good idea to show less of everything else. Sleeves and a high neckline will keep your silhouette in proportion by balancing out all the skin on show. That's why this dress is perfect.
