There are at least two kinds of people in the world: the ones who believe that the perfect dress for the summer is a flirtatious mini. And the ones who much prefer a chic soignee midi. Which team are you on? Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we decided it was time for a head-on competition. So, right here, right now, the mini takes on the midi (or maxi dress, if you prefer) for the best dress of summer 2020. It’s. On.
Is this the summer of the mini or the midi (or the maxi)?
With all of the urgent matters of the day swirling around us, here at Dandelion Chandelier we spent the weekend pondering a deep question of existential dimensions: is the mini dress or the midi dress the iconic silhouette of the summer of 2020?

As a nation – as a global community – are we feeling the need to cover up? To sweep into a garden party with our dramatic skirt swirling around us?
Or are we feeling sassy and chic? And ready to don what is essentially a tennis dress and wear all day every day all summer?
They say that hemlines tell us a lot about the zeitgeist and the state of our culture. Which sounds right to us, actually. And the fact that there IS NO agreed-upon hemline right now is just further proof that we are divided, uncertain, unable to commit to a plan of action. Or at a minimum, deeply ambivalent.
Happily for fashion mavens, though, this Age of Indecision leaves us free to choose.
