A Vintage Maxi Dress For the Tall Girl Or the Short Girl

Can I get away with a long Vintage Maxi dress if I’m short? Yes!!! The cool thing about the maxi dress is that it looks good on every shape and height. The maxi dress is a free flowing loose dress that isn’t meant to show off your legs or waist. So keeping that in mind you can get the dress as long as you want it, it only depends on what you want.

Vintage dresses can come in an ankle length or floor length. If you are afraid of tripping over an extremely long floor length summer dress, try pairing it with a cute pair of wedge style shoes instead of a pair of flat flip flops. Using this trick can even give you the appearance of being much taller than you really are. The vintage maxi dress may not be the best dress to select if you want to show off your shoes. If you want to show of a nice pair of shoes you should wear a nice pencil skirt or a shorter knee length dress.

I know that if you venture out and try a vintage summer dress at either ankle length or even at floor length you will be surprised and satisfied. You should also be adventurous when selecting a print. There are lots of beautiful prints out there. There are floral prints, animal prints, tie dye prints, and much much more. So don’t be afraid to be daring with your wardrobe and especially your dresses. Remember in whatever you do, don’t be afraid to be yourself and go with what you feel and express yourself. Don’t be one of those people who are afraid to express their selves and standout in a crowd. Sometimes it’s good to let your clothing speak for your fashion sense. Just because you’re a short girl under 5.5 doesn’t mean you get step out in style with the longest hottest new styles.…
