Celebrity Style: Best Ways To Wear Your Next Minidress

June 2, 2014 • Celebrity Style, Magazine


Nothing says fashion like a stylish minidress. Solid-colored or in a print, embellished or bulked up with accessories, minidresses are a great way to ease into an ensemble for any event – whether it’s a stroll around town or an evening affair. Celebrity fashionistas love a good minidress, and know how to style them well. Just look to celebs like Kerry Washington, Ashley Greene, and Julianne Moore for example. The four celebs below showcase the various ways to wear a minidress this season – in their beautiful and ultra-glamorous style.

Black Mini – Gwyneth Paltrow 

It’s not surprising to see a celeb in a black minidress, but it’s how they wear it and what they wear with it that makes all the impact. In this case, Gwyneth Paltrow looks striking but subdued, in her black mindress with a conservative silk neckline. What stands out about this dress is that it’s age-appropriate but still makes an impact – thanks to the layering of a boucle jacket and bold ankle boots.

TIP: When in doubt, layer with a jacket or add bold accessories.

Embellishment – Amanda Seyfried

Another LBD at its finest on Amanda Seyfried, but this one stands out for another reason entirely. There’s nothing like beading and embellishment to take an otherwise ordinary minidress from whimsy to wow factor. Amanda’s dress is decorated with beads and the zipper on the skirt adds a cool touch.

TIP: Embellishments can be everything to an outfit.

Popping Prints – Miranda Kerr

Where Miranda Kerr is concerned, the power of the minidress should be the power of the print. She looks trendy, classy and delicate in this patterned silk-organza Erdem dress with neon embroidery at a Kora Organics event in Sydney. Prints certainly liven up even the most ladylike frock.

TIP: Never underestimate the power of the print.

Sparkle – Jennifer Lopez

Never one for subdued dressing, Jennifer Lopez welcomes the wow factor with low cut ensembles, slits, and lots of sparkle. In this case of this KaufmanFranco number worn at the American Idol finale, she certainly packs a punch, even with a lighter hue. JLo reminds us that minis come in all shapes, sizes, and textures – and sparkle is most glamorous for a night on the town or a lavish event.

TIP: Sparkle is one of the best ways to easily oomph up a minidress whether going for a fancy dinner or a special night on the town.
