Emma Roberts's Maxi Dress Trick Is Perfect for Short Girls

Emma Roberts has been hitting a lot of sartorial home runs recently. Her latest look featured a familiar piece: Roberts again wore the Ralph Lauren striped maxi dress that she wore for the brand's most recent show during NYFW. This time, the star kept it simple and paired it with colorful slides.

We couldn't help but notice that the 5'2" Roberts made a certain adjustment to the maxi dress to make it more suitable for her petite frame, opting to hem it to midi-length, which in turn made her look taller and kept the long dress from dragging on the floor. This trick is the perfect method for making a maxi dress wearable and flattering for shorter girls, and a quick hem is an easy adjustment for a tailor to make.
