Get This Look: Spring Skirts & Dresses For Short Girls

As a petite woman myself, I can empathize with all the other short girls out there who often find themselves having a difficult time with clothes.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve changed out of an outfit because I felt like it shrunk me and don’t get me started on maxi dresses. I’m still hopelessly searching for one that doesn’t sink to the ground.

Thankfully, there are some petite girls who have mastered the art of choosing clothes that compliment a small frame. Luckily for us, some of these girls don’t mind sharing their knowledge.

One of our favorite fashion bloggers, Jean, is the author of Extra Petite. Just under 5 feet, Jean can relate to the various short girl struggles and has found many ways to counter them. Her blog is described as “a fashion blog that provides styling ideas and shopping information with a focus on professional attire. This blog also aims to share suggestions and solutions for those who may be shorter than the average woman, yet still want to look stylish and feel confident.”

Now that spring is here and the sun is making its way out, we’re itching to wear skirts and dresses. So which ones match our frame? Check out these spring looks from Extra Petite.
