Insomniac Sale Picks: Petite Printed Maxi Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Charlene requested a few picks for petite printed maxi dresses, so here we go:

7. Wallis Floral Print Petite Maxi Dress

Wallis Floral Print Petite Maxi Dress – was $78, now $63

This is a fabulously versatile print, in my opinion. The black and red mean it will transition into fall, but white, yellow, and green are also present in the print and can be pulled out to create spring-y and summery outfits. Plus I love those wide straps! Available in petite sizes 4 – 14.

6. Apt. 9® Geometric Empire Maxi Dress - Petite

Apt. 9 Petite Geometric Empire Maxi Dress – was $50, now $30

Or hop on the black-and-white pattern trend train with this surplice dress. Stick to black accessories for a classic look, or add red, turquoise, or pink accents to bring color into the mix. Available in petite sizes XS – XL.

1. Ann Taylor Petite Painted Herringbone Maxi Dress

Ann Taylor Petite Painted Herringbone Maxi Dress – was $138, now $71.99
With extra 40% off sale dresses (no code needed)

The simple, black belt and halter neckline on this printed maxi give it a polished feel. Add a white cardigan for a beach-y look, or dark blazer for a Casual Friday office outfit. Available in petite sizes 0 -12. (Sold out in size 2.)

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for petite printed maxi dresses:

  1. Wallis – This site has an entire section of petite maxi dresses! And most are printed!
  2. Macy’s – The longer I work on this feature, the more I’m convinced that Macy’s has lots of petite options. Including 70 maxi dresses.
  3. Piperlime – Although several of these aren’t sized as petites, they feature shorter hemlines and might work on some petite frames.
  4. QVC.com – Loads of solids, but cute prints, too, like this watercolor print.

    Sally,

    thank you for posting. I’m in love with the 1st one and the qvc. so I will be ordering those to try.

    Thanks for your your help.

    I’m an almost-petite (just under 5’5″ with longer torso & shorter legs) and just bought this maxi: http://www.landsend.com/pp/womens-pattern-slub-french-terry-tie-shoulder-maxi-dress~251816_59.html (in the regular size, although it’s available in a true petite & plus as well). Land’s End almost always has coupon codes so be sure to google first.

    I was surprised at how much I love it! Wide enough straps for a supportive bra and the elastic waist is surprisingly flattering in a loose-fit sort of way. I’ve found with my body shape that a lot of maxi dresses either overwhelm me (I’ve actually gotten one hemmed that I really liked, but it’s expensive) or make me look pregnant. This one does neither – huge winner! It may not be a traditional to-the-floor maxi, but it provides a very similar look/coverage. And no hemming required!
