About Our Petite Dresses
Finding a dress that fits should not be a case of sleuthing around the web and the mall. Luckily for you, it isn’t anymore. Closet52 is a great resource for those 5’4” and under. We believe in body positivity and our designs regale and highlight your size and shape. Self-acceptance is the goal and at any size. You should be you. Our dresses not only fit properly but also accentuate and enhance your height and shape.
A-line silhouettes pack a powerful punch—and you will be the beneficiary! This is a dress silhouette that flatters your height. Choose one that falls to a few inches above your knee.
Dresses in solid colors from neckline to hem are big winners. Dark colors like black, navy or brown, create the illusion of a streamlined silhouette. When wearing a dress of one solid color, your frame doesn’t get broken up. Consider solids as your new style superpower. However, prints are a Godsend too! Prints also keep the line of your silhouette going strong. Smaller prints like tiny florals and dots, plus vertical stripes elongate the torso. If you prefer bold, splashy prints… great! They convey confidence. To be sure, all these looks should be in your fashion arsenal.
Another pointer? Look for loose dresses that come with their own belts or waist sashes. Not only do they instantly accessorize, and add a stylish detail to your dress, but most importantly, they enhance your shape. A few quick style tips: Take advantage of empire waist dresses. Now trending due to the popularity of the show Bridgerton. These dresses have a much higher waistline and give the illusion of a longer torso and offer an overall flattering look. V-necklines create a vertical line that fools the eye, while jewel and scoop necklines add a certain subliminal femininity to your presentation. Shorter dresses show more leg and give the appearance of a little more height. Midis and maxis offer comfort, fun and trend-savvy style.
Our overall message is to wear what makes you feel good. Feeling good makes you look good and that is truly empowering.
