It is natural for every woman to desire to turn heads wherever she finds herself. However, women have different shapes and different sizes. Whatever fits your tall and skinny friend might not fit you because you are short and skinny.
Below are a few fashion tips for petite ladies:
AVOID BIG/OVERSIZED BAGS: Oversized bags are so big that they can seem to overwhelm short women. Petite women should select purses of medium size instead so that their bag will be in proportion to their smaller frame.
YOU SHOULD WEAR DRESSES THAT FIT YOUR BODY FRAME. Fitted or semi-fitted clothing looks better on petites than loose-fitting apparel. A petite woman should stay away from garments that have a lot of design ease because all that extra fabric adds bulk and can make short women look heavier than they really are.
SKIP THE MINI SKIRTS AND DRESSES: Although minis look great on women with long,slender legs, they don’t have the same effect for shorter women. The hem of a mini-skirt worn by a petite woman falls across a thick part of the thigh, making it more noticeable and making shorter legs look even shorter.
DO NOT WEAR ROUND TOE HEELS: sleek pointy-toe heels will do wonders for your legs.
MAKE SURE YOU WEAR ALL ONE COLOUR: Using color to enhance the illusion of height is a highly effective strategy, as it helps create a vertical line. While wearing head-to-toe black is the simplest—and eternally chicest—option, saturated hues work well, too. The trick to monochrome dressing: Keep each silhouette crisp and tailored.
PETITE WOMAN SHOULD WEAR HIGH WAIST BOTTOMS. High-waist bottoms when worn correctly, they can trick the eye into thinking you’re taller by elongating your lower body. Whether you choose skirts, shorts or skinny jeans, be sure to make the elevated waist visible by tucking in a tailored blouse, or opting for a slightly cropped top.
MAKE FRIENDS WITH FLATS: Since nobody can be expected to wear sky-high heels every day, petite gals should invest in a pair of pointy flats. Why? Because it’s a known fact that shoes with pointed toes lengthen your leg line.
PETITE WOMEN SHOULD WEAR SKINNY BELTS. Short girls should always opt for a skinny version of belts—it’ll define your natural waist in the most flattering way possible, but won’t cut you in half the way a super-thick belt can, which causes you to look shorter.
Every woman is beautiful.
