Petite women should avoid wearing short dresses in this way


The dresses, the most democratic and simple garment of all … or not? The truth is to be short has its respective challenges when it comes to making any piece look perfect, because before the objective of gain inches in height or prevent legs from being shortened, selecting the right outfit can be finicky, even when it comes to dresses in their shorter edition.

But what had they not told us that any minivestido lengthen the legs? Yes, but there are fine print in that contract, they are the terms and conditions for using a short dress when you’re 1.60 or less and then we’re going to reveal them.

Wear monochrome outfits

Contrast your outfits between the colors of the short dresses you wear and your shoes.

Combine a minidress With shoes that are exactly the same color, it will not lengthen your legs at all, quite the contrary, you break the harmony of the look and you can even make it look dated. The advice to follow is to find shoes that generate a contrast interesting (like tennis or matching black ankle boots now that it’s fall). If you are classic and you like ballerinas, the nude ones they are your best allies.

Wearing the wrong extension with tall boots



Wear models that are positioned several inches above your waist.

High boots are in trend this fall and they can look great with short dresses if you are short, but check the extension of the garment very well. Yes, we know that a short dress is small by nature, but if it stays millimeters from your knees and with high boots, you will be able to visually reduce your size. It is better if you choose minivestidos that literally pay homage to the word ‘mini’, of course, without committing a misstep, As long as they rise about 4 inches above your knee, you are in no danger of showing more than you want.

Dresses that are too baggy reduce your size.

If you use short dresses that are very baggy and do not mark the lines of your silhouette, your petite body can get lost in a sea of ​​fabric and, therefore, you could look smaller than you really are (which is perhaps just what you want to avoid). You don’t have to wear an ultra-tight sheath dress if you don’t want it, just choose clothes that somehow mark your waist or the outline of your figure to style and look taller.

Downplaying the waist



Opt for dresses that mark your waist.

This point goes very hand in hand with the previous one. There are dresses that do not mark where the waist begins because its structure is uniform, but, if there is a type of model that you can cling to when you are short, it is the one that divides exactly where does the waist start, as it happens as with pants: those who are high waist, make you gain size. Do not underestimate the power of the dress size, it can bring you big surprises if you choose it in the right way.
