I have always been truthful about how tall I am, 4’10 and proud! My petite frame can make things harder for me when it comes to fashion. There are styles that we are told would not look great on us, styles we should avoid altogether. Midi style for example will make a short frame look lost or so they say!
Since I am a rebel, I follow no fashion rules. I like to make my own! I have figure out how us short girls can rock a midi look.
Go for length below the knee or no longer than the beginning of your calf. Also, don’t be afraid to visit your tailor. This dress that I am wearing isn’t a petite midi dress, I took 4in off in length and it fits me just right!
Go for texture, rather than solids. I find it easier to look lost in a solid midi style. Adding a little texture changes the look up a bit. I went for a summer floral print in this dress and I honestly love it.
I prefer either an A-Line style, wrap skirt or bodycon, because they create an hourglass look. An hourglass look makes us look longer and more polish.
I picked my strappy nude heel for this look. Nude heels makes your legs appear longer than what they are. Plus, adding some height with heels always helps.
If your going for a A-line look, I strongly suggest adding a belt. Whatever midi style you choose, always define your waist.
Show off your shoulders
Okay I’ll admit, this one is more for me ha ha! I love anything off the shoulder 🙂
Do you have a petite frame? What are some styles you were told are don’t work for your frame?
I always believe in confidence to wear what YOU want! If your tall and like mini skirts go for it, curvy and like bodycon… get it girl!! There is always a way to make a trendy style work for everybody type.

I’m short too, Mel so it is harder at times for us!! But this dress is perfect on you, and I think the shape of the midi can help!!
