What dress to wear for short girls?
If you are a fan of long dresses and long skirts, you must choose something with a slit. These type of dresses are not only super sexy, but they definitely elongate your figure and make you look taller. Eva Longoria is one of my favorite petite women who always manages to amaze me with her looks. The black color makes the dress even more elegant and stylish.
Straight satin dress
The Y2K style continues to make the buzz this year and in this context, the satin slip dress is all the rage on the web. But if you are looking for a summer dress that lengthens the figure, it is better to opt for short models. Combine it with sneakers, lace-up sandals or high heels depending on the occasion. It’s as perfect with a basic white t-shirt underneath as it is with a sweatshirt on top. You can accessorize it with a belt or enhance it with a hair accessory such as a satin scarf for example.
Long knit dress
Light and super practical, this summer dress is ideal for your daily walks in the city. It’s perfect for travel, so don’t forget to pack one on your next vacation. Another advantage is the vertical knitting which visually adds a few centimeters to your height. Pair it with platform espadrilles or with flat sandals and you will be ready to go!

You can pair it with so many things, but I suggest go with a simple white T-shirt and a pair of ankle cowboy boots.
