Is it just us or are there an awful lot of mini dresses in the shops at the moment? And have you noticed how the black mini dress devotees are out in full force on the red carpet too? Do people not realise it's still sub zero temperatures in Britain!? Well, if you can't beat them join them. Just with some style-savvy, winter warmers like thick black tights and tight tailored tuxedo jackets added to the little black dress mix!

Mollie King and Emma Roberts- we salute you and your practical yet sexy style in recent weeks. Both starlets worked the red runway in the smallest of little black dresses but wisely Mollie teamed hers with simple black tights and Emma opted for long sleeves, tights and boots. Girls after our own hearts in the winter mini dress stakes. Jennifer Aniston and Rachel McAdams however were not quite so weather conscious and flaunted their bare (and toned to perfection, of course) pins in black mini dresses on freezing January nights past. Jen was particularly daring, choosing a skimpy black bandeau mini dress which left little to the imagination and Team LBDs teeth chattering just looking at her. If you're in the market for a new mini dress, (which you should be because not only are there loads in the Sales at the moment but they are a top investment buy), we've got some fabulous frocks to share with you. And some tips for keeping warm in them till the sun comes out!

We've fallen in love with this 'furry' tinsel effect mini dress at Topshop, (Was: £250, Now: £80) not just because it's an absolute bargain, from one of our favourite high street brands and adorable, but because it looks so snug and might just keep us from catching pneumonia in all those nightclub queues come the weekend! Of course, to be on the safe side team this super-small mini dress with plain tights and a blazer. We've also spied this gorgeous floral number at Topshop, £36, which is guaranteed to make you feel like Spring is on the way despite the ominous clouds up above. Keep patterned black mini dresses like this fun and fresh with pale woolly tights and brogues or shoe boots and layer with a smart swing jacket and peep-toe heels for a grown up boho-chic look in the evening.

Valentine's day is fast approaching and the occassion really does call for a mini dress but that doesn't mean you have to flesh too much flesh. Our Quontum for LBD Boutique Mesh Sleeve Dress, £45, is perfect for your romantic celebrations and will keep problem arms, and those who feel the chill easily nicely wrapped up whilst still showcasing some leg. If you're looking outside the little black dress world for a Valentine's dress red is an obvious but classic choice. The Gabby dress, £65, by LBD Boutique's newest brand Hedonia, is just the right colour to make an entrance but its chic and sophisticated drape style, cowl neck and long sleeves will be getting you noticed for all of the right reasons. For more Valentine's themed dresses Team LBD have given their V-day seal of approval to this Print Heart Dress, £98, by Silence Beyond Syllables and Hedonia's extremely popular sweetheart neckline Binky dress, £30. Both will look great with a fur jacket or coat- see Urban Code's fabulous feathery cover-ups for some style inspiration.

With all mini dresses be them black mini dresses, short flirty floral numbers, dazzling diamanté encrusted or ravishing red, be sure to keep jewellery minimal so as not to look over-done and if skyscraper heels are your footwear of choice tone down the look with tights and a jacket. Add an oversized envelope clutch bag- great for squeezing end of the night flats and a jacket into- and your mini dress medley is complete.
