Just because summer is over does not mean you have to put away those dresses, because the truth is, it’s never not dress season! If you’re looking to add sophisticated dress silhouettes to your closet, a midi dress may be the perfect option. The only thing is that you’re hesitant to pull off this look because of your height.
Not to worry! With Closet London’s wide range of midi dresses, you’re bound to find one that will work with your body type. Furthermore, here are quick tips on how to style a midi dress if you’re short:
- Choose the right length
When selecting a length, it is best to choose one that is slightly above or at least below mid-calf. This gives you the illusion of a longer dress. Avoid midi dresses that end at mid-calf as this is usually the thickest part of the leg.
- Be selective with the fabrics
For fabrics, opt for airy and light fabrics to highlight femininity. Also, if you’re short and want to wear a midi dress, laces are your best friend!
- Consider dresses with a slit
Show some skin with a sexy slit. This is an excellent way to add length.
- Accentuate the waist
Another great way to add length is to draw attention to the waist. This also works with midi skirts. Stay away from tops that cover your waistline or those that end at the hip.
- Pair with the right kind of sexy heels
For shoes, make sure to style them accordingly. Petite women often opt for statement heels to add length to their look. However, note that not all heels are created equally. Avoid those with ankle straps as this cuts off where your midi dress rests.
