I’ve been asked this question a lot… can petite girls wear Maxi Dresses!? In fact yes they can! Maxi dresses are my element and I die for the them. I feel my best in a dramatic maxi dress, big statement earrings and some super high platforms – cause yes ladies you’ll need to bring those out of your tiny and petite like me. So, what’s the secret in making a maxi dress work for us petite girls, read the tips below and find out 🙂
1. Pick maxis that accentuate the waist (whether it be the empire waist or your true waistline). Empire cut maxi dresses with soft flowy skirts work best in hiding tummy bulges and giving the illusion of longer legs (more height).If you’re wearing a maxi that is belted on the true waist, make sure you wear heeled strappies with the long dress to make your legs look longer (and you taller).
Go with the flow and by that I mean flowy, like a chiffon
2. As you all know I love layering, so a jacket is must over a maxi dress. A jacket can help break up your maxi look, and make your outfit seem like, well, more of an outfit! I especially love the look of denim or leather with flowy materials for added contrast.
3. Please do wear the right shoes! Ladies, please don’t ever do a closed toe with a maxi! A sexy sandal is the way to go 😉
