Dress Outfit Proportions
Dresses are really easy to wear for petites as long as they are not too long (ending just above or on the knee), anything longer unless it’s a maxi dress will not be great for you unless you want to wear high heels. Dresses provide one long proportion, not cutting up the body in the way the individual top/bottom outfits do.
- Keep necklaces short (the easy rule for petites is to think: Short legs = Short Necklace, Short top/jacket, Short skirt/dress)
- Wear low vamp shoes so your legs look longer.
- Don’t break up your body if you are an O shaped proportion, with any horizontals and work the longer line cardigan too which creates two long elongating verticals through your body
