Rock a petite dress and sleek shoes in your 30s. The 30s is a time to begin establishing your personal fashion style. Once you determine your style, it becomes easier to select a flattering dress and sleek shoes to wear with it.

Petite Reese Witherspoon gets it all right by choosing to wear a dress in a rich purple that looks good with her pale complexion and blond hair. She has a rectangular shaped figure, but you'd never know it because she cinches her waist with a black belt. Her dress is just a few inches above the knee, a workable length for most women in their 30s. Finally, her sleek black shoes feature peep toes, a top style for petites.
