20 Trendy Long Sleeve Mini Dresses For Fall

 

Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best mini dresses for women this fall! They're perfect for every occasion from date night to wedding guest season, holiday parties, wine tasting, hosting a dinner party, and that's just the beginning!

Mini dresses AKA minidresses are as popular as ever and are a must for fall. As a gal who is petite (under 5’4”) it can be hard to find dresses above the knee that actually aren’t midi length because of my stature! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered dresses online that I have to return because they are far too long. I wish that retailers would show how a particular dress fits women that are tall, regular, and petite. That’s my rant of the day! Thankfully mini dresses come in tons of styles, colors, prints, and price ranges and are perfect for every woman regardless of height. I purchased this long sleeve dress recently and I’m obsessed. I love the tie waist detailing – it’s so flattering, is above the knee, and a must for fall. 

Mini dresses are perfect for any occasion! Some are ideal for fall weddings, while others are perfect for wine tasting, a party with friends and that’s just the beginning. They’ll look great with your favorite ankle booties, mid-calf boots, knee-high boots, and over-the-knee boots! Mini dresses will also look great with strappy heel sandals, mules or slide sandals if the weather is still warm in your area!

Today, I’m excited to share 20 trendy long sleeve mini dresses just in time for fall! I also shared tips on how you can accessorize them with shoes, jewelry, and accessories.
