How to wear a dress that’s too short

I guess you have a dress that you got for a present that’s cute, but just not the right length for you. Or in some strange state of mind, you bought a dress that crosses that fine line of tasteful short hem. We’ve all been there. That’s why I gathered a few tips on how to wear a dress that’s too short and still look great.

Some time ago, I ordered this black dress from Shein. I like its simple design and casual style. But it turned out to be a bit shorter than I am comfortable wearing. I do like short skirts and dresses, but the loose pattern of this dress makes me kinda look like I forgot my pants at home. Anyway, I wanted to figure out the way to wear it. So this is what I figured out when I was trying to style that dress.

 

HOW TO STYLE A VERY SHORT DRESS?

 

  • Tip #1: MAKE IT EVEN SHORTER

If you want to wear a dress that’s too short, it must not look like a dress that’s too short. So you need to shorten that hem some more. You’d like to achieve the look as if the dress was meant to be a tunic. The easiest way to do that is to put a belt or a scarf around your waist or hips. You can pick one in the same color, or opt for some bold contrast and make your outfit eye-catching.

 

  • Tip #2: DON’T FORGET YOUR PANTS

This is the obvious one. You’ll need to wear the dress with something that covers your butt. Choose jeans for the casual look. Pencil pants also go well with the tunic-like dresses and are a great choice for a more sophisticated look. Here I wear the dress with the black jeans, but I also wore it with this black and white shorts. Also, don’t be afraid to pair it with a skirt. Find out what works the best for you, but make sure it is flattering for your body shape.

 

  • Tip #3: PUT SOME HEELS ON

Unless you are very tall, you’d want to wear some shoes with heels. The reason is simple. The tunic-like dress will hang somewhere around your hips and visually elongate the whole upper part of your body. If mother nature didn’t gift you with super-long legs, high heels should achieve the balance.

 

So, what do you think about those tips? Have you ever been in the same situation and have you come up with any other solutions?

YOINS ripped denim skirt review

Hi, guys! Long time no see! But I’m back now with a recommendation for a new place to shop online. Also, I will give you the discount code, so stay tuned.

 

YOINS fashion brand

Today I want to present you another fashion brand that sells trendy clothes at affordable prices. YOINS is one of those big brands whose goal is to offer such a huge range of clothing items for us to shop online. They sell everything from clothes, shoes, accessories to lingerie, swimsuits, and activewear. There is also a very generous offer for ladies that are plus size. They have the whole section of men’s clothes, too.

Basically, the idea is that you can shop there anything you need. So, their site is worth checking out because the chances are that you’ll find there that special-occasion dress that you need or a new jacket for fall or – well there are a lot of things.

 

ripped denim skirt from YOINS

I ordered this denim skirt because firstly, it’s cute and secondly, you can never have enough denim skirts in your closet. I like it because it’s so flattering on the body. I mean, if the booty looks good in it, then there’s nothing to think about.

But as you can see, it is not quite the same as in the picture on the site, right? It’s less ripped, less bleached, the waist is not that high, and the denim is not as solid as it appears to be. However, I didn’t expect a very thick denim as they state the material is polyester and denim.

I know I have to be cautious when ordering online because what you see is not always what you really get. So, I always read. If you want to find out some more tips on online shopping, check out my previous post. Anyway, I am happy with the material of this skirt because it has some stretch to it and it’s really comfortable.

 

My experience with YOINS – the YOINS review

This was the first time I ordered something from this site. Is the item the same as in the photo? Nope. But I can say that my overall experience is positive. The fit is good and also is the material. The skirt is trendy and easy to style. I especially like that the hem is longer in the back. The design is classy with an edgy twist. I’m sure I’ll wear it a lot.

 

YOINS discount code! Yay!

So if you like this skirt (the one that I’m wearing, as that is what you get), you can shop it here. Do check other stuff they offer here. And you can use the code BLOG15 for the 15% off!

IS SHEIN A SCAM?

 

When it comes to online shopping from brands that sell trendy and cheap clothes, you might be wondering about many things. Will the garment look the same as in the photo?  Will it be of a satisfying quality? Am I going to waste my money? Is that brand a scam?

Shein is the big, worldwide shipping online clothing store that offers really affordable on-trend clothes. You’ve probably already heard about it or shopped from it. I did a few reviews of their products in some of the previous posts. This post, however, won’t be the standard review post. As someone who has experience with shopping at Shein, I want to share with you tips and tricks on how to choose clothes from Shein and how to get exactly what you’ve ordered.

 

TIPS FOR SHOPPING AT SHEIN

 

  • Tip 1: TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS

Don’t be lazy on this one. Measure tape should be your best friend when ordering from Shein. Don’t even think of relying solely on size marks like S, M, L et cetera.  Sizes are not standardized. Which means that different models of blouses, for example, won’t be the same size in cm, even if all labeled as XS.

Also, the size you usually wear might differ from one that will fit you when ordering from Shein. Their clothes are from China so they may be made to fit primarily Asian body figure. Measure yourself precisely and compare that to the detailed sizing chart in the Size and Fit section next to each clothing item.

When trying to pick the right size, also notice the fabric the garment is made of. Which brings us to the second tip.

 

  • Tip 2: PAY ATTENTION TO THE MATERIAL

The quality of the garment depends immensely on the material it’s made of. The same thing can be said about the price. You cannot expect high-quality natural fabric if the price is $10. That being said, you can still pick wisely.

In the Description of the item, take a look at Material and Fabric. Is there a note 100% cotton or 100% polyester? If you want to buy a blouse or a dress, both could be OK. But if you are looking for a coat, it just won’t look as good if it is made of 100% polyester rather than 100% wool. And if it doesn’t have a lining.

So read the description carefully! Also, read if the fabric has a lot, a little or no stretch? That can help you imagine how the item will fit you and pick the right size.

 

  • Tip 3: DO THE RESEARCH

If you want to make sure to get what you see, put a little bit of your time in researching. You can find users reviews for many items on Shen site. Read them all. Look at the photos of bloggers styling that item, if there are any. Maybe even try to find the blogger’s reviews of that particular garment on the Google.

It happened to me that I liked some items from their site very much, but when I couldn’t find any review or even the photo of the model in that garment, I just gave up on ordering them. I only order items that have good reviews and which fit is clearly showed in the photos.

By following those rules, I’ve only had good experience with Shein so far. Of course, you can always take a risk, but if you do, don’t get disappointed if what you got isn’t what you imagined.

 

  • Tip 4: PREPARE TO BE PATIENT

You finally placed your order, and you can’t wait to get and wear your new trendy clothes. Well, you will have to wait for some time. The items are shipped from China, so the shipping time depends on where you live.

Visit the Shipping Info page on Shein site and find out about how it takes for the package to arrive in your country. If you need clothes for some set date or for a vacation, make sure to order in time. You can also pay some extra money for the express shipping if you don’t find the fee a bit pricey.

 

  • Tip 5: SAVE SOME MONEY

Shipping time can differ from country to country, and also does the shipping fee. For the USA it’s not much ($3.99), but for other countries, it can get much higher. Learn about shipping fee for your country on the Shipping Info page.

However, Shein offers a good deal – shop over $50 and get the free shipping. You might think, “I don’t want to spend $50 on clothes now, I just want that cute shirt.” And I get you. But you can gather a few friends of yours, and if each of you orders one or two items, there you have free shipping.

Follow the tips on shopping at Shein, and it’s highly likely that you will be satisfied with this brand.
