Mini Dress Shapes and Styles – Mini dresses are available in such a vast variety of styles that it is super easy for every girl to find her ideal look. Mini dresses can be found for all events and occasions from casual beach outings all the way to party nights and clubbing. Shapes from sleek and sexy figure huggers to rara style skirts to asymmetric sleeves, there is something for everyone. Be sure to choose the right style for the right occasion. Sexy figure huggers may look the part but will not be the most comfortable dress for the beach, why not choose a loose skirted mini dress instead? Keep the skimpy and saucy numbers for the dance floor as these are the perfect way to get your figure noticed!
#20- Geometric print mini dress. Loose fitting so great for beach wear. Match this with cute bangles and flip flops.

Ideal Accessories For Mini Dresses – Clutch bags are a winning choice for most dress outfits but even more so for the mini dress. Two small and simple items brought together to create a bigger and better image. With plain mini dresses you have a broader spectrum of accessories to play with so why not experiment with chunky necklaces or multiple bangles? Or even break colours up with a thin belt? If wearing printed and patterned mini dresses be careful not to over do it with too much bling as this can completely throw the style and can ruin your desired look. People sometimes overlook the use of hair accessories. Use these to their full potential. From simple hair clips to fully loaded headbands and bandanas, all hair accessories have the ability to completely change the look of an outfit for the better.

Footwear To Wear With Mini Dresses – Heels are every girls choice of footwear, especially when it comes to party nights. Heeled pumps, peep-toes, wedges, thigh high boots, ankle boots and t-bars are all fantastic choices when pairing shoes with mini dresses. Heels have a great way of making legs appear longer, and even more so when matched with short skirts. Thigh high boots are a great way to create the long leg look for girls who may not be as confident about their legs.

Some Final Top Tips – It is vital you wear properly fitted underwear as badly fitted underwear will show through your mini dress and leave ghastly bra and pant lines. Don’t shy away from stockings or sheer tights. These make legs appear smoother and can also give a subtle shine.

#4- Plain black mini dress with lace sleeves. Match with black pumps and contrasting red chain strap handbag.

#1- Cute and sexy plus size tartan mini dress with shoulder caps and collar. Little lace up sides create an eyecatching look. Platform pumps finish this style beautifully. Perfect for parties.
Some of these aren’t really styling recommendations so much as dress recommendations. Take #22, for example: ‘halterneck mini dress with shaped hemline and contrasting floral design. Perfect party wear’. This is all well and good, but that is merely a description of the dress. You’re not giving us any suggestions on how to wear it. Do we add a clutch? A hair accessory? Jewellery? We will never know. By not giving any actual advice about how to wear the mini dress, you’re not fulfilling the promise of the title. It also looks like you’re using filler to reach your target of 23 recommendations.
The other issue I have with this? You’re literally describing the photos. You’re not giving any advice that you can generalise to any other outfit. There’s not a whole lot I can apply to real-life unless I have the exact ensembles you’re describing.
Check out #8. You’re not even speaking in full sentences anymore: ‘Hessian tote bag and nude tone wedges’.
This article was promising but it was disappointing that a) not all of these points include direct styling advice and b) there is very little to generalise outside of this context. You may as well have just said ‘I describe 23 very specific mini dresses’.
