Let’s begin from dressing.
Every petite woman should wear dress all in one color from your top to your shoes. Sticking to tops and dresses in one color make you more stylish. It will help you tolook smart and leaner. And also match your tights and stockings to your outfit too.
Avoid wearing a lot of different colors and patterns.
In darker colors one’s look slim so choose darker shades like black, navy, dark green, purple, burgundy or charcoal. You can also choose colors that compliment your complexion also helps to create a more stylish appearance.
Select clothes with vertical lines.
Vertical stripes will elongate your figure which can be flattering for petite women. Avoid clothing types with large prints although small prints are a creative way of adding style and color to any look. Wear V shapes or U shaped necklines in tops and shirts that will elongate your neck which works best for a petite woman and these necklines styles also aid in creating the illusion of height.
A petite woman must wear tight fit garments.
If you want to wear a belt, match them to your outfit and keep belts slim. Wide or contrasting belt will cut your figure in half and break up the vertical illusion that we want to achieve to look longer and slim.
Wear high heels which is easiest way to add height to your look.
Heels are the best option to make legs appear longer and slimmer. Avoid shoes with ankle straps at all cost, it creates a shorter appearance. Select shoes with comfortable high heels.
Select medium sized purses.
Select medium sized purses so that your bag will be in proportion to your smaller frame. Stay away from huge handbags. Oversized bags are so big that they seem to overwhelm shorter women. As a petite woman you have to be more conscious of the most flattering styles to create a more stylish appearance.
Wear jeans and pants with straight legs.
Avoid tucking your pants into your shoes. This has an ankle shortening effect. Try wearing a long pant that will hide your heels and make you look longer. To keep a slim line, choose pants without cuffs and bulky pockets. Keep in mindthat dark colors have a slimming effect to help make you appear taller, so choose pants in dark colors are always advised.
Avoid miniskirts and mini dresses.
The hem of a mini skirt worn by a petite woman falls across the thick part of your thigh and makes it more noticeable and makes shorter legs look even shorter.
