So often we hear from girls and women that they are too short to wear a maxi dress. But why? You do not need to be a model to wear a long dress and look fabulous. Look at the celebs like Miroslava Duma (150 cm), Aimee Song (163 cm) or Lucy Williams (165 cm). And how tall do you think our model (on the picture) is? She is only around 165 cm, so what we would like to tell you is that maxi dresses are for everyone, you just need to know a few tricks on how to make it work for you.
We guess you already know our first tip – heels and again heels! You cannot get around those wearing a long dress, especially if the event is formal. Important is the comfortable height, 7-8 cm would do. And do not forget to wear them a few times before the event, no one needs to suffer :o
If your figure is light and slender we would suggest a dress that sits tight on your figure as that would help to elongate the silhouette. It would be as well beneficial to have a dress with a deep neckline, as again it will visually make you seem taller. As to the colour, it would be best to go for a solid one and not to experiment with the prints too much.
On the other hand, if you are petite and have some curves, the A-line or empire dress might suit better. In any case, the dresses that would allow more space for the hips are preferable. You can as well play with the accessories, like a thin belt to visually elongate the bottom half. Solid colour or some kind of vertical print would be a better choice.
And if you think that maxi dresses are not comfortable, that can be if you are not used to it at first, but for sure it will be compensated by the fact that all eyes in the room will be turned on you!
