With the hot weather upon us, we started to wonder ... how short is too short? Canadian designers are saying be brave and bare it all to beat the heat! Mini dresses are a must-have for the summer of 2008. Our suggestion-- if you can wear it, bare it! Noticing trends for this summer, I'd say that a lot of us are in agreement that there really doesn't have to be a time and place to hike up the hemline. From cocktail events to summer weddings, the mini dress is here all summer long. I love the little mini styles that are hitting shops this summer. And even better is to see that Canadian designers are staying competitive with their daring designs. Out of hundreds of styles, here are our top five favorite short dresses, from casual to cocktail, by five up-and-coming Canadian designers. Enjoy!
