Rock a petite dress and sleek shoes
in your 20s. The 20s is a time to have fun and experiment with fashion. If a mini-skirt looks good, it's also a great time to wear one, but minis are never a must-do at any age. The choice to wear a mini-length dress depends both on age--minis are more appropriate for younger women--and on the woman's size and shape. A slender petite woman with slender legs can pull off this look. Those with thicker thighs will be better off skipping the minis.
Here petite Vanessa Hudgens celebrates her youth with a trendy metallic mini-dress and neutral skin-tone high heels. I'd like the platforms better without straps so that the leg line wouldn't be interrupted, but since the shoes are a light neutral, the effect isn't as stark as it would be if she were wearing dark shoes.
