I love a long, floaty dress in the summer (who doesn’t?) but when you’re a petite lady, these can be pretty tricky to come by. If you’re struggling to find THE ONE, I’ve got some suggestions that might help.
Luckily, there are now more petite choices than ever when it comes to, well, all clothing! But I always approach the annual long-summer-dress hunt with some trepidation because every year, the perfect maxi or long floaty dress has always been such a mission to find.
You can guarantee that every year I’ll find myself wanting a (new, obv) long dress for something or other. Holiday, garden party, or just because. And as I vow to eliminate as much black as I can from my wardrobe, this year I’m also lusting after colourful prints and pretty colours. These year they seem to be around in abundance!
I’ve really not had any road blocks this year with long dresses as I think so many brands have started to cater for us 5ft3 and under ladies. Sure we still have some way to go, but this is a huge improvement in choice compared to previous years where I’ve given up entirely. ASOS have a seriously great choice at the moment in the Petite section and I snapped up this beaut floral maxi dress the week before last.
I’ve been doing A LOT of swishing and swooshing around in it.
I’ve also popped some of my favourite other petite picks below…can I have them all?? This year I’d seriously recommend ASOS, Missguided & River Island for some seriously awesome petite dresses.
