Regular Leopard readers will know that we are die-hard maxi dress fans. If that hemline isn’t wafting around our calves, it ain’t happening. But, we realise that not everyone shares our penchant for a below-the-knee number, so we’re breaking out of our comfort zone to bring you our edit of the best mini dresses around right now.
From 90s slips to flattering wrap fronts, rental options and sustainable indie brands to high street faves, there’s a mini dress to suit every style, occasion and budget. We’re almost tempted to try them ourselves…
That embroidered collar is giving us serious Rixo/Ghost vibes for a fraction of the price. £29, Simply Be.
This Rixo Celeste dress would normally set you back £255, but you can rent it from Hurr from just £37.
The spendiest style in our edit, but Sister Jane is the brand for Cecilie Bahnsen/Simone Rocha/Molly Goddard vibes on a budget. £155, DREAM Sister Jane.
- It’s Ganni. 2. It’s on sale. 3. There’s loads of sizes. 4. GO. £65, Ganni at The Outnet
When it comes to the environment, we know denim is one of the worst offenders. Thought’s pinafore is made with premium organic denim in a sustainable production factory and has the smallest carbon footprint possible. £89.95, Thought Clothing.
Another corker from our new favourite sustainable label. We’d style it with a white tee underneath. £30, Omnes.
Because is it even a dress edit without leopard print? £19.99, New Look Curves.
Puff-sleeved, star-print mini dress perfection. £42, Nobody’s Child at M&S.
Kitri’s Harlow dress has sold out once before and is so popular it’s on pre-order. Sign up, asap. £135, Kitri.
A classic dress with major Cher Horowitz vibes. £18, Asos Design.
Best worn with a Pina Colada. £80, Kai Collective.
That colour. Those sleeves. Name a dreamier dress. We’ll wait. £20, Asos Design Curve.
What can we say, we’re suckers for a statement collar. £40, Monki.
Sandals now, boots later – this is the ultimate transitional denim dress. £24.99, H&M.
