I've never been into midi-length dresses and skirts because I'm a petite person. At 5'3" making myself look taller is always a factor I consider when getting dressed. I've always hated looking stumpy (as I call it, haha) wearing certain garments, so I always try to elongate my legs. I always preferred shorter skirts for this reason.Well my tastes have changed and my confidence as grown because now I love all things midi. In these shots I don't think my legs look short, so I think it all depends on the type of garment and achieving the right proportions. Since this dress is a tight one-piece, it elongates my entire body, even with flat sneakers on. High waist midi skirts would work for girls on the shorter side too!
I went with sporty vibes for this look adding my black bomber jacket and baseball hat. I try to dress casual as much as I can because I always have to dress nice or a uniform at my two jobs, haha. Does anyone else feel like this too?
Where are my other petite ladies out there? Do you try to elongate your legs in your outfits too? What's a go-to combination for you that makes you look taller?
