What would summer be like without miniskirts? You can’t go wrong with these; they’re a closet must. We really appreciate how useful these little ones may be during heatwaves, on trips, and on hot dates. And that’s not even mentioning how easily they can switch gears from day to night or between different szns.

In the swinging ’60s, when fashion designer Mary Quant popularized tiny hemlines, women everywhere began donning this now-iconic garment. In the 2000s, they made a strong comeback, but they were less A-line and more bodycon (of course, this is the era of the slinky slip dress). In 2022, there will be a wider variety of minidresses than ever before, from Cecilie Bahsen’s baby dolls to Faithfull The Brand’s milkmaid fashions. Furthermore, you can choose from a wide variety of crochet shirts, balloon sleeve tops, and puffball skirts. If you’re in the mood for something racier, try a Y2K-inspired ultra-mini like the belted Miu Miu skirt everyone is wearing on Instagram.

After years of wearing midaxi (also known as midi and maxi) hems, trying this trend may seem daunting. However, remember that the emphasis is on how the hem is styled. Although little black dresses (LBDs) are timeless and always appropriate for a party, if you’re in need of a piece that can be worn in a variety of settings, consider a slip design that can be done up with heels or underpinning with a t-shirt for added coverage. The best lightweight fabrics, such cotton and linen, are minidresses, which are perfect for the sweltering summer months.

Finding “the one” in a sea of short dresses might be a bit of a challenge. Because of this, we’ve gone ahead and done the legwork for you by picking out the top 5 currently available options.
