What do you think of the mini dress trend? I love it but i'm one of those people who is always cold so i'll be happy to pair it with some leggings and snug boots come fall!

I have a very similar dress to the red one. I found it on sale at Victoria's Secret almost 6 years ago... It is probaly the most borrowed dress in my wordrob. Classic and sexy. I loved all the other styles you have in this post.
