Must-Have Mini Trending Party Dresses

When it comes to trending party dresses, you can always count on mini silhouettes for an unforgettable entrance. For example, the Folky Affair tulle and silk-faille mini dress by Johanna Ortiz. Firstly this dress will dazzle under the lights thanks to the glitzy silver crystal embellishments. Secondly, the barely-there spaghetti straps and dropped waist bodice are right on trend. Finally, the ruffled hemline was made for dancing, it’ll also look incredible with silver heels to accentuate the 3D embellishments!


Meanwhile, if you’re all about brightly colored party silhouettes, we totally get it. We wasted no time adding the brocade Addison dress by Amanda Uprichard to our edit! This dress exudes a modern edge with plenty of 80s vibes thrown in. These appear courtesy of that sleek strapless neckline, seriously voluminous A-line mini skirt, and allover floral detailing. Not to mention the eye-catching shade of fuchsia that’s just as gorgeous now as it was then. Simply add heels for a party look you’ll want to wear on repeat, most likely for decades to come.
