Hi there, I’m model Jaimie Hilfiger. Today, I’m at Pistol & Stamen in Hollywood, California. Many times, when invited to a formal event, we ask ourselves the question, “Is it appropriate to wear that cute little short dress that’s been hanging in my closet that I’ve been dying to put on?” Today, there are so many different formal wear options for women, but this question still remains, especially for short women. The answer is, “Yes,” and a woman’s height really doesn’t matter. You just have to make sure that your short dress is formal enough. Today, I have some options from Terani Couture that are short dresses, but they’re appropriate enough to wear to a very formal event. See how this dress has the added plumes on it, and it has all the intricate detailing and beading up top. It would be perfect for even a black tie affair. Next, I have this other dress with this large bow and the jewel detail, and the material is fancy as well, so it would also be okay. And also, this dress that I have on would definitely work for a formal black or white tie event as well. So, there you have it: Some short dress options that are appropriate to wear for a formal event. Also, remember your height doesn’t matter. Thanks for watching today. For eHow Style, I’m Jaimie Hilfiger, and I’ll see you next time.
