The mini dress comes in and out of style. The first fashion brush with this style was during the nineteen twenties when flappers made the first of the short dresses really popular. Although they showed up on the scenes in the nineteen twenties they did not quite reach the heights that they did in the nineteen sixties. There are some styles that are favored above other styles. The baby doll dress is considered one of the favored styles. The first time these styles made the scene was in the nineteen sixties they were worn primarily in floral patterns and psychedelic patterns. These styles and patterns are back in style again.
