Ruffle-Collared Dresses Are Officially Outdated - What To Wear Instead

While the ruffled Victorian-collared dresses had a lovely run, it appears they are well on their way out. And, if you weren't exactly a fan of the whimsical style, you may be pleased to hear that something more structured and modern is taking center stage: suit-style minidresses. The single-piece, tailored minidress has both sophistication and style. It lends versatility to slightly more formal attire, making it a great go-to for both business and pleasure. The fitted minidress suit is certainly reminiscent of Cher Horowitz's iconic yellow plaid skirt-and-blazer set in "Clueless," which is right on trend for the re-emergence of '90s favorites we've been seeing a lot of lately.

The short suit-style dress is effortlessly chic and feminine while commanding just the right amount of attention. Dressing for an important work lunch or a special dinner date is simplified with this elegant piece. There's no shortage of outfit inspiration when it comes to the suit-style minidress.

Sleeveless style

The vest minidress is somehow both carefree and polished all at once. With bare arms and an elegant V-neck, the suit-style minidress is ideal for evenings out on the town or long days in the office. A simple, muted neutral makes for even more versatility. Accessorize easily with heels and a high ponytail to suit the occasion. Get ready to nail your summer office look with this trend. 

Structured and sleek

Pastel dreams

This softer iteration of the suit-style minidress trend makes traipsing around Europe look even more dreamy — as if that were possible. Instantly done-up with minimal effort, the suit-style minidress simplifies the puzzle of getting ready and ensures you'll still be in tip-top shape. Pair it with cute sunnies and a relaxed updo for endlessly chic energy.

An asymmetrical hem
