#1 Sparkle in Sequins

Just because you’re not the tallest in the room doesn’t mean you can’t shine the brightest. Sequins are THE party go-to if you want to stand out in a crowd, and lucky for you we have all the glitter a girl could want with our petite party dress range. Cut and designed to fit your figure perfectly, sequins will help you shine bright without compromising on fit, so you can look party-ready – no alterations needed!

#2 Show Off Those Pins

Petite Pink Sequin Bodycon Dress £55

The golden rule of petite dressing is choosing outfits that flatter your frame. The easiest way to do this being, show it off! If you can’t display a little skin during the party season then when can you? So ditch the jeans and strut your stuff in a party mini dress, that also creates the illusion of longer legs! Try to stay clear of silhouettes that cut up your figure, opting for an above-the-knee cuts and dresses with a higher waistline to show off your slimmest part.

#4 Cinch in That Waist

Using tailoring or a belt to define your waist isn’t only silhouette0skimming 101, but it also gives the impression of longer limbs (and added height!) Not only is it one of the easiest ways to flatter a petite figure, a defined waist is also great way to highlight curves in a dress or jumpsuit. If you want to wow at your next party, cinching in your waist is a fail-safe way to show off your shape and complement your figure.

#3 Embrace the Jumpsuit

 Petite Black Glittery Jumpsuit £40

For something a little different, why not try a jumpsuit? A chic black all-in-one is always flattering, no matter your size. Opt for yours with a little party-ready sparkle, alongside a fitted top half and waist to help create the illusion of longer legs. When it comes to showing off that petite frame, cropped trousers or jogger styles are always a good choice. Plus just the thing for showing off those new brand heels – giving you a little lift in both the height and style department!


#5 When in Doubt…
