Who said the little dresses are only for young girls, moms can as effortlessly pull off little fit and flare dresses. Take inspiration from celebrity moms like, Victoria Beckham, Nicole Richie, Beyoncé and Miranda Kerr who love flaunting their little ensembles.

For a party with friends it’s a good idea to let your LBDs, LWDs, LRDs do the trick. If you’re a little hesitant wearing a small dress, pair it with your basic leggings and the right heels to go with your dress.

If you think the dress draws too much attention keep the cuts and necklines elegant. A halter neck or long sleeves can just add the right amount of mom-appropriate element to your dress.
Keep a bit of blush and some dark lip color in your make up and a loose or messy bun for your look to be completed.

  • Hi Gurkamal, I just wanted to say how much I love your blog. The variety of blog posts keeps me coming back for more. I particularly related to this article as my wife (over 40) is always concerned about how much she reveals when going out on the town. I definitely love the ‘Little Something’ over anything more formal. I’ll send her over to your site so she can get a better idea when considering a clubwear and a mini dress. Thanks.
