How to Wear a Dress That is too Short – Three Easy Tips

Do you have longer tunic-length tops or sweaters that you’d like to get more wear out of, and style as a dress? Depending on your height, you can get more wear out of some of those shorter dresses or tops and feel more modest, comfortable and stylish.

What do you put under a dress that is too short?

Tip 1: Lace Slip

I know what you’re thinking, like a grandma slip? Lol, no! These slips can feel modern and add dimension with a stylish look and feel. I bought these three pack from Amazon and you’d be surprised at what you can pair underneath them! They’re great under sweater dresses, tunic flannel shirts, and looser-fitting, tunic-length tops.

Tip 2: Biker Shorts

Maybe you’re on the short side or feel confident wearing the short dress, but need a solution when transitioning from sitting to standing. A biker short can give you all the confidence you need! They come in all sorts of colors so even if you want to wear a nude pair under a white dress – it can work!

Tip 3: Heel Height

Sometimes if you have a taller heel it can sometimes make the dress feel shorter. I recommend taking out the heel and instead wear a lower heel or flat for a more modest feel.
