A minidress is arguably the easiest throw-on-and-go outfit in the Summer. (OK, aside from like, denim shorts and a t-shirt.) You probably already know that your minidress fits you well and, when you bought it, you immediately pictured it with specific accessories that you already own. But what if we challenged you to switch it up this season, so that your minidress outfit doesn’t look just like everyone else’s? We rounded up ideas from our favorite fashion people so that you can still maintain that easy, carefree wardrobe, but also pull some tricks out of your sleeve that happen to get you noticed while you’re walking down the street.
With the help of waist bags, scarves, cowboy boots, heck, even hair add-ons like barrettes, you can transform your look completely and take it to the next level. Our personal favorite examples include Gabi Gregg’s breezy white shirtdress and hoops, Courtney Quinn’s colorful belt hack, and Nicolette Mason’s unexpected mint bag and shoe match-up. While some of the combinations below are perfect for date night with your SO, others are just laidback enough for running errands in a really sweet print. Scroll to get inspired and give your minidress the new life it deserves.
