The Petite Party Dress: A Faux-Wrap Mini

"I love a modest silhouette in a splashy in color and this faux-wrap style hits in that perfect spot, right above the knee." - Sarah Wasilak

2 Holiday Party Dresses That Look Amazing on Petites - Oh, and They're $58 or Less

If there's one dress style that always flatters petite women, it's the minidress. These thigh-grazing styles have leg-lengthening effects and are a particular favorite of ours for the holiday party season. Naturally, we just had to design a couple of playful minidresses for our latest POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's, including this POPSUGAR Surplice Mini Dress and POPSUGAR Printed Mesh Dress, both of which cost $58 or less!

Pretty and playful, these affordable minis stray from the expected shimmer-and-shine dresses we're accustom to seeing this time of year, though in that fresh-feeling way that's unexpected and stand out. Sequin dresses? We've been there! Our fiery fuchsia wrap (with a subtle sheen) and leopard-print mini (with sheer mesh sleeves) are spot on if you're after an alternative party look. But the best part? They're ultraflattering for petite shapes whether you're for styling one with glittery heels and tights or luxe-looking boots and a mini bag.

To illustrate just how flattering these minidress are on a petite frame, our 5'1" fashion editor Sarah Wasilak put both styles to the test. Ahead, witness her refreshingly festive looks starring affordable dresses from POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's. Then, shop her exact pieces (plus some affordable alternatives) to get yourself party-ready for December.
