Dresses

I really want to get some cute summer dresses to wear with my cowboy boots but the problem is that Im only 5'2.  whenever I put on a dress it makes me look really short and fat, then add boots to that and it isn't good.  I would love to wear a maxi dress but long dresses are even worse.  It seems like a dress has to be above my knees or it is just a train wreck.  Any suggestions on what type of dress I should try?

Try one that is cut with the new Hi-Lo style.....make sure it's above your knee and maybe add a belt that will coordinate with your boots. They look really cute with cowboy boots...the short in the front and long in the back highlights the best of everything !!!! I found some adorable one on "Zulily" for hardly nothing....Good Luck :))

American Eagle summer dresses are super short. It may be the right length on you :)

something fitted at the waist that's wider on the bottom. 'frilly' if you will.
