#TargetStyle: Maxed Out

For us petite girls it's all about the knot...

Let's be honest, if you're under 5'7" it's pretty much impossible to find a maxi that won't have you falling flat on your face. Also, for most casual cotton maxis it seems a little silly to get them tailored. That's when I say go for the knot; it saves you from making a fool of yourself and even shows of your shoes a bit! Wore this maxi dress for a weekend date with my sister and it was perfectly comfy and cool!

  1. I love this causal look. Great idea to tie up the bottom, although I have the opposite problem and can never find them long enough.

    1. Maybe I should send the extra fabric on my maxi dresses to you! :-p At 4'11". Needless to say, I definitely make frequent trips to the tailor or employ the knot method.

  3. Love this dress on you, Ashley, looks superb (even with the knot!).

    I tried this on about a month ago or so and of course (ugh) was not long enough for me (opposite problems!). #wahwah

  4. This dress is insanely beautiful! And I'm 5'5" so I totally hear you on the length of many maxis!

  5. I love this maxi dress! I'm only 5'2 and always have to get maxi skirts and dresses hemmed. i love how you tied it at the end.

  6. I love this dress! My friend (who is 5'7") was just making fun of me for doing this the other day! Glad I'm not the only shorty in the world that relies on this technique!
