Unfortunately for the short folk, maxi dresses are in. I'm 5'3" (shortay) and I've always wanted to pull off a maxi dress.
When style queen, Carrie Bradshaw, was seen in Sex and the City sporting a maxi dress oh-so-fabulously, there seemed to be hope but then I remembered I don't work out three times a day like she does and have the ittybitty waist with the curves, which makes her look taller than she really is. [not fair] Some shorter women look beautiful in maxi dresses but I look completely awkward and shortened. Is it just me?
There is hope! The sheer maxi dress can lengthen any height if worn properly. For example, a high-waisted sheer maxi skirt can make your legs look longer and your waist look smaller. The sheer material gives you less of a shortened appearance since the material is see-through and flowy. The fabric also shows off those legs! With high wedges or heels, the sheer maxi dress will look elegant and sexy....and not to menion, elevate us! Sheer maxi dresses are also perfect for beach trips and tropical vacations.
