Perfect Party Dresses for Your Figure: Petite Figure

Tips for Dressing Petite Figures:

-Choose a strapless style to show off a great upper body!

-Nipped in waists and pencil skirt styles create curves.

-For petite girls, choose a shorter hemline (a couple of inches above the knee) and stay away from tea-length styles as they tend to make you look shorter.

-Wear a great pair of heels-the higher, the better!

-Petite figures can pull off ruffles and embellishments really well so go crazy!
