Petite women every where know, all too well, the struggles of finding a dress that is equal parts sexy, as it is flattering. It doesn’t help that there are so many covetable maxi and mid styles, because most often than not, they just don’t fit the same for the five feet and below crowd. Which is why when we do come across the perfect dress, it’s all the more special. By perfect I mean one that makes you feel like a woman in control – even if, like me, you’re totally not – and like a lady who is in-tuned with her body, and proportions. A quintessential robe (French for dress; also, yas foreign language courses) like the wrap number featured here is sadly a rare occurrence for me. Can you imagine the shock and glee (see below) when this calf-length sweater dress made my 4’11 frame look like an average height gal who has never had an issue rocking one?
There exists an unadulterated moment of delight, and I finally had one with a wrap dress, thanks to this Forever21 mustard piece. The length is just right, the hue is a vibrant variation of my favorite color, and it’s a great option for the last days of summer. But, this dress also easily transitions into fall – add socks or tights, a light layer, and it’s an autumn party! Petite gals, this dress is for you. Did I mention it’s only $22? Outfit details below.
