Petite-Friendly Maxi Dresses at Anthropologie

Anthropologie Petite Tamsin Maxi

Tamsin Maxi Dress via Anthropologie

Zara Petite Denim Jacket
Dress: Anthropologie (I'm wearing an XSP) | Jacket: Zara (current season's) | Hat: F21 (similar here andhere) | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Shoes: Ann Taylor | Bag: kate spade new york (similar here) | Bracelet: David Yurman | Watch: Michael Kors

I adore maxi dresses (and think they can definitely work on petite frames), but it's always a challenge to find petite-friendly ones that don't require alterations or four-inch heels. I've had some luck with Anthropologie's maxis lately, and I appreciate that they always list the length of the petite v. regular versions in their product descriptions. (Another tip: I take a look at their model photos--if the dress ends at their model's ankles instead of at the floor, the petite version will go to the floor on me).

The dress I'm wearing in these photos is their Tamsin Maxi. I sized up one size because I've noticed that this particular designer (Puella) seems to run pretty small. With our warm spring temperatures here in Denver, I've been able to wear it already with a jacket, but I think it'll be a great dress for summer.

Hope you had a great weekend!



  1. What a lovely dress. I want to try some maxi too this summer. Weather here in Portland is still way too cold to even wear sandals or go tight-less. I complain that time goes by so quickly but one thing I do want to arrive ASAP is warmer temperature :)

  2. So pretty! It's good to know that Anthro offers petite maxi dresses because I always have issues at stores. Love the hat on you too!

  3. Great dress, I may have to check this one out :)

  4. I am 5'2" and finding petite maxi dresses always seems like an impossibility. I found one that worked alright on my frame (from Ross of all places), but it isn't as flattering as some of the ones that are too long for me. I will definitely check this Anthro version out.
