Petite Evening Wear

Are you looking for petite evening gowns? Dressing for a special occasion can be stressful for any woman, even more so for the petite woman. Getting an invitation to a formal event, wedding or otherwise, is exciting but comes with a little ping of stress when you realize you have to find something to wear. Some tips to consider on how to choose the right evening dress so you’re fully prepared anytime the occasion arises.

A Line Dresses

Keep it simple and elegant with an A line dress. Pick either a pearly white shade or something in sea green or coral. You can go for three fourth sleeves or a sleeveless dress. Accessorize with dangler earrings or a heavy stone statement necklace. A gold cuff bracelet would also go very well with colours like sea green and coral. Wear stilettos or peep toes with this one!

Maxi Dress

A maxi dress is another great option for those with a delicate frame. You can choose a colour like black, shimmering gold (make sure that it’s not too flashy!), midnight blue or ox red. Go for necklines such as sweetheart, V neck or high neck. If you have slender shoulders, the Queen Anne neckline would also look fabulous. Team it up with a big stone ring and stiletto heels

Asymmetrical Dress/ Skirt

Asymmetrical skirts and dresses are quite the fashion statement these days. Whatever colour you choose, make sure you pick a sweetheart neckline or a simple round neck sleeveless top as these two necklines are the best options for an asymmetrical style of dress. Pick wedges with this one and accessorize with a snazzy clutch.


Pick a knee length pleated skirt of a dark colour and wear it with a turtle neck, full sleeved top. Wear ankle boots and carry a studded clutch for a funky look. A pencil skirt or a tulip skirt are also hot favourites for evening wear. A tube top with either one of these skirts would be ideal. Wear pumps and pull your hair up in a casual bun with some loose strands of hair. Pretty, indeed!


If you have been thinking that jumpsuits can only be worn during the day, here’s some good news for you – are you the type who would rather wear jeans to parties and who is uncomfortable with skirts and dresses? Well then the right kind of jumpsuit is just the attire for you! A black jumpsuit with a gold necklace or cuff can never go wrong. You can also accessorize it with a funky belt. You will find jumpsuits in numerous styles, all you need to do is pick a colour for the evening and a style that suits you best. Leave the rest to accessories. You can also wear an embroidered net jacket on op. Wear Pumps or stilettos and carry a shimmering clutch.

Remember, if you’re going for a plain and simple dress with minimal designs, accessorize yourself with embellishments such as statement necklaces, bracelets, heavy earrings and belts. Keep it simple if it is a glittery dress or if it has extravagant designs on it. Don’t fret too much on the hairdo. Just let your hair down into loose curls. This will work for all the above mentioned outfits. Keep the makeup minimum and just focus more on the eyes. Good luck!
