Being a petite girl, I’ve always stayed away from Maxi dress because most of them drown me or act like my personal sweeper In the past I’ve had to either knot them at the hemline or wear 100-inch heels to keep them off the floor. So it’s no surprise that I literally had ONE maxi dress. That was before I found this beauty at Express. At a recent Spring outlet shopping spree, I discovered that Express petite maxi dresses fit me just right & I don’t have to be on stilts.
WHAT I AM WEARING
SHOP THE LOOK
Maxi dress is one my Spring must haves. They provide you more leg coverage than a regular dress (perfect for Spring) & you still feel breezy wearing them. So if you are a petite girl, keep these things in mind when you look for a maxi dress. Things that make this dress work:
HIGH SLIT: Sticking the leg out of the slit (a.k.a. the Angelina Jolie pose) exposes some part of the leg & makes it appear longer.
OFF SHOULDER: Showing off my decollete draws the attention towards the face & away from my petite stature
PRINT SIZE: The size print is just right for my frame. It’s not too big that all you can is the print & not too small/busy that it seems like I’m wearing a blanket.
The dress I’m wearing is unfortunately sold out but here are few of my under $50 favorites!
