Actually, there are so many styles of petite cocktail dresses that can enhance your appearance.  Petite ladies can go for solid colors and smaller prints because petites can get completely lost in the boldly printed petite cocktail dresses. There is nothing more flamboyant than a petite lady covered with a single solid color from top to bottom with minimum jewelry and natural makeup. Then, another ideas for petite cocktail dresses; empire waist dress. empire-waist dresses are very flattering for petites, because the waistline hits right beneath the breast, your torso and legs appear longer. Empire-waist dresses create an illusion of height and can hide many lower body flaws. The flowing fabric seen in empire-waist dresses is both figure-flattering and comfortable. Always go for tailor made clothing and avert overmuch fabrics, frills and bouffant sleeves. In addition, we cannot move ahead without mentioning the A-Line petite cocktail dresses. These dresses add fullness to a petite frame and give it a prominent definition. They concentrate a lot on the hips and the bottom, rather than the waist. An A-Line dress skitters the hips and gets wide at the bottom. Never wear dresses that concentrate at the middle torso ’cause they only make you look shorter. After you are done with selecting the dress, rather than relaxing, search for the matching fashion accessories!
