Trend watch: bright colored mini dresses

One of my favorite trends for the upcoming season is the bright colored mini dress. This spring and summer are all about color and the brighter, the better! The key to making the mini dress work for you is to make sure that the fit is right for your body. If your legs aren't your best asset, than choose a dress that has a slightly longer hemline.

Bright colors accentuate a tan and help to make your overall skin tone look brighter. Since the mini dress is such a statement on its own, make sure to pair the look with subdued make-up and nail polish. Because this season is so focused on elaborate jewelry, you can easily pair three bangles or chandelier earrings with this look without going over the top. In fact, neon yellow necklaces will be one of the most popular choices for jewelry as the temperatures warm up!

Solid Gold boutique in Austin has a great selection of dresses. The Alanna dress by Melissa Odabash is a short, pink dress that captures the perfect mini dress look.

One of my favorite looks is the Avril coral dress. It has gorgeous ruffle detail and an exposed zipper down the side. Coral is a fantastic color for the summer.

Another one of my top picks is a Walter by Walter Baker bright teal dress with floral applique on the straps and a sweetheart neckline. The draping along the bust ensures a more flattering fit.

Need a mini dress on a budget? Try Forever 21 in the Domain! They carry a lot of mini dresses for a reasonable price. I love the mustard colored strapless taffeta dress with a cinched waist.

Remember: Don't be shy, this season is the time to work the mini!
