17 Petite Winter Maxis and Midis That Are Begging to Be in Your Closet

I love maxi dresses as much as anyone. And, now that maxis are trending for winter as well as spring, there’s even more opportunities to wear them. But I’m, short, damnit, and brands seem to forget that! Nothing is more annoying than finding a cute dress that fits you perfectly—except for the fact that it’s too damn long. For all my shorties, there are petite winter maxi and midi dresses out there, and all of them want to come home with you.

Whether you’re just trying to look cute in case you see a hottie at Trader Joe’s or you’re headed out to a fancy work function, winter maxi and midis are the ideal outfit. Your legs are covered, but free, and you don’t have to pick out matching pants and a top. I’m not sure why more men don’t wear dresses, because they’re truly a lazy person’s dream. Maxi dresses require minimal effort while providing maximum style. If that doesn’t convince you to wear more maxis, IDK what will.

Of course, when you’re under 5’5″, anything that’s supposed to cropped becomes full-length, and anything full-length requires the skills of a tailor. Nothing makes me want to buy something less than having to pay more money just so that it fits correctly. I mean, come on. When I buy a dress, I want to wear it the next day. I don’t have the time (or credit card limit) to send all my freshly acquired clothes to be hemmed. That’s why I keep my eyes peeled for brands that sell petite clothing. It’s the least they can do to help out a short gal like myself.

If you’ve been avoiding trying the winter maxi and midi trend, stop. I’ve found 17 super cute petite maxi and midi dresses that you won’t have to have altered. Plus, a bunch of these dresses transition well into spring, so you really have no excuse not to try one.
