Mini dress over jeans isn't a look for everyone

Although I don't know anything about her music, I think British pop singer Lily Allen is a quite pretty and adorable girl. And she's not a stick figure. Here she looks sweet in her swing mini, but for some reason her legs look like tree trunks, which is not an attractive look on anybody, curvy or not. She really should've ditched the jeans and just gone bare-leg or cropped leggings. Jeans worn under a mini dress is a tricky look because they add volume. For curvy girls don't need extra volume. For skinny girls, I still only recommend extra skinny jeans to put more emphasis on the bellow-y mini.

Hmmm. I think I might have to agree with you. If you're going to do the jeans under a dress thing, you have to do it with skinny jeans. I think Lily Allen is kind of adorable, but she does look a bit shlubby here.
