Extended Style Notes

ASOS Petite One Shoulder Midi Length Dress – Size 8 Petite

What I loved…

  • Off the Shoulder - This has been one of my favorite trends of the past year because it looks fabulous on many different body types. I like incorporating the off the shoulder trend into a holiday dress because it looks sophisticated and elegant, but it's comfortable at the same time.
  • Fitted bodice – Another feature of this dress that I love is the fitted bodice because it highlights the smallness of my upper body and emphasizes my pear-shaped figure.
  • Draping – I love the faux draping effect of the skirt of this dress because it plays up how curvy my hips  are and allows me to show them off! :)
  • Midi Length – Even if you’re petite like me, you can definitely pull off a midi dress like this one! I recommend wearing heels so the length of the dress doesn’t overwhelm your short stature.
