Make A Statement In Short Summer Dresses

These short summer dresses are so stunning, you’re guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. Firstly, in the asymmetrical floral mini by Hemant & Nandita. Its summery, one-shoulder neckline and individual long sleeve are absolutely gorgeous and perfectly unique in style. Additionally, it wows with a deep shade of fuchsia decorated in a brightly colored floral print. Meanwhile, this dress instinctively highlights your figure thanks to its flattering belted waist. This is balanced out perfectly with a structured shoulder and a voluminous ruffle hemline. Style this dress with heeled sandals for cocktail evenings and dinner dates.

If you’re looking to make a truly unforgettable entrance and exit, choose Magda Butrym’s Ruffled crepe mini. It’s structured throughout for an undeniably elegant fit. What’s more, its barely-there halter neckline keeps the silhouette chic without distracting from its crowning glory. That is, of course, its dramatically oversized, 3d silk flower artwork displayed on the front left-hand side of the dress. Prepare for all eyes on you as you grace the entrance of your next summer soiree.

Short Designer Dresses For This Summer And Beyond

When it comes to short designer dresses, we always recommend investing in silhouettes you’ll wear for multiple years and occasions. Like the lace insert button through mini dress by Asos Design. It has a stunning, fitted silhouette and a structured, bodice-style sweetheart neckline. Additionally, its puff sleeves provide the perfect amount of volume whilst subtly adding to how seriously cute this dress is! Style its versatile design with heels or flats depending on your plans. We’re already excited to wear it again next summer!

You can never go wrong with a cute floral mini dress in the summer months. That’s why we know we’ll always adore the Lydia floral-print mini dress by Nicholas. As perfect for breakfast and brunch dates as it is for picnics and beach strolls, this will be a summer-long favorite.
