This is one of my favorite dresses. The silhouette is commonly flattering because it is form fitting in your upper body exactly what we need as short girls but it is also more forgiving for your lower body. They are especially recommended for women who do not want people to focus on your lower body, such as the pear body type. Wrap dresses are one of our favorite dresses for short women of all time. Diane Von Fursternberg invented the legendary wrap dress inthe de that made her a fashion icon at the age of Today, it is hard for us to imagine the times before wrap dress was invented.

Over 40 years have passed, we can still barely find another dress that is so versatile, convertible, workplace appropriate and great for day-to-night. I have to admit I am an official addict of DVF wrap dresses.

The empire waist is a dress where the waist line is high, and sometimes it is placed just below the bust line. Because it raises the waistline to above your natural waist, it effectively creates the illusion of shorter torso and longer legs. This high waist line followed by the skirt of the dress will create a perfect illusion of length and will help to camouflage your midsection or bottom if that is your concern if you are a petite woman with apple or pear shape.

For instance, petite apple shape women may be self conscious about their mid riff and do not want people to notice their stomach, the best dress for them is a petite skater dress with empire waist de.

The Juliana dress is a perfect example. Because the waistline is elevated and the flare starts just a little under the bust line, it completely camouflages the stomach area. Needless to say, since the elevated waistline is above your natural waist, it makes your bottom half looks longer and optimizes your body ratio to the maximum.

Speaking of best petites dresses, we must mention dresses with a belt is high on our list. A belt can totally change the perceived ratio of your body. Ever heard of rule of thirds and the golden mean ratio? Our body ratio looks the best when it is divided by the thirds instead of halves or quarters. That is a universal law applicable to all height, and it is especially critical to us short women. We can totally use this rule to improve our body proportion and elongate our legs.

That is when a belt can come into play. The key is to make sure the belt is positioned high enough to make your torso look shorter and your legs look longer. The best color of the belt is one to blend with your dress. That way will avoid making your body look like cut in half while still adding subtle texture and interesting dimension to your outfit. Dresses with a belt also help those of us lacking a defined waistline to have more waist definition, such as the petite rectangle shape or petite apple body type. Sure, most stylists advise us to go with short skirts, because that is the most logical way to make our legs to look longer.

That is true to some degree.

Wearing short dresses above or at the knee is one of the most obvious ways to lengthen our legs and look taller than we are. However, wearing a long dress is another way of effectively extending our frame and thus could be very flattering to petite girls.

For the new season, we recommend these maxi dresses in petite sizes from Anthropologie. Of course, there is no cut and dry answer to what is considered smaller print and what is not.

It is all relative, and the important thing is to keep them in scale to your body. If you are petite and skinny, go with tiny prints.

On the other hand, if you are short and curvy, prints too small might make you look bulkier than you are. Normally I do not recommend petites to go with midi length. The reason midi dresses hardly make it to our list of best choices for petites is because the hem ends at your calves, which may make your legs look like cut in half. Dresses with slide slits are also flattering to petite women because they show some skin of your legs, especially when you are walking or sitting down, which compromises the drawbacks of the midi dresses. Finding the right dresses for petite women is not easy, and a lot of times it depends on your personal preferences.

Petite women come in all different shapes and sizes, and there is hardly any set rules on something that absolutely will look good or bad on you. Fashion is what each of us use to express our own individuality.

Dresses with vertical patterns or vertical des are tried and true most flattering dresses for short women as well. Short women need to create length in what they wear in order to look longer and taller, and the most obvious way is to go with vertical patterns and des. Stripes are the easiest choice of vertical prints. If you have a small body frame, going with something subtle is better than something loud and busy.
