That one length that is an enemy to us short girls - midi. Trust me, anything midi length just does not look as good as it does on tall girls.  Fear not my fellow short babes - because although this type of length is not on my must-have list, I have a few tricks that I use to pull off a midi dress.

1. Bodycon // Lengthening is key for any short fashionista, so when it comes it midis you have to make it look like you're taller than you really are. Because midis cut you off at the calf, a boxy dress will make you look stumpy and even shorter. With that said, choose a bodycon dress vs a loose fitting dress to make your figure slimmer.
2. Show Skin // Opt for a dress or skirt that has a slit. Showing more leg will make your legs seem longer, hence giving you a taller look!
3. Heels // I totally failed at this one for this outfit and would've definitely used my leather heeled booties, but always always go for heels when wearing this type of dress. Wearing heels or heeled booties will heighten your posture and will illude anyone to think you're taller than you really are.

These are just a few tips that I use when wearing midis dresses, so I hope this helps anyone who was on the fence about buying anything midi. Don't let this length stop you from buying what you want! Happy midi shopping loves!
