MINI DRESS

A shorter hemline shows more skin, which creates the illusion of a longer leg. It's all about keeping the right proportion in mind. Of course, if you’re wearing a mini, make sure it’s not offensively short—let’s keep it chic. You can have lots of fun when it comes to color (bright summery colors), shape of neckline (V-neck, U-neck, off-the-shoulder) and prints (floral, polka dot, geo prints), so don’t be afraid to express yourself!

MIDI DRESS

It’s hard for petite girls to wear the midi dress length: sometimes they make you look shorter and stout. But what if we tell you that if you wear it right it is possible to rock a midi? Follow our two golden rules! 1. Opt for a high waist midi and draw attention to your waist, for example, cinch in the waist with a belt; 2. Select a length that is just above or below mid-calf where the leg is a little slimmer.

MAXI DRESS
Petite girls are always advised to not wear maxi because they make them look shorter. However, there are pieces that just make you feel great. Keep the shape straight. Have a beautiful neckline so that the focus is more on the upper body than on your height. Accessorizing maxi with a belt or necklace will also make you stand out!
