Calling all petite women out there! Thanks to the taller-than-usual sized models that we see flaunting the latest trends on ramps everyday, which more often than not has led us to wonder if a certain style would suit our petite (remember fabulous) body type. So, we’re going to save you from any self pity that you might be harboring, and to ensure that your attire is most suitable for if you have a short height, we bring to you our coveted style secrets:
CINCH YOUR WAIST
Invest in a trendy jumpsuit or long tops (our desi Kurtis look equally chic!) that cinch at your waist lending an accentuated look to your overall attire. As by adding dimension and depth to a look, we can create a more flattering perspective for ourselves.
AVOID ALL-BAGGY EVERYTHING
Learn the art of maintaining balance, folks! If you’re wearing baggy lowers, pair it with a fitted top and vice versa. But for the love of fashion, do not step out of the house dressed in a loose top paired with loose pants – goodness, no.
CROP FITTED DENIM IS A YES
The power of cropped denim can never be overruled! Go for faded blue (our favourite) ripped jeans that end just above your ankles drawing attention to your legs this way and also creating an illusion of an extra couple of inches this way.
Don’t we all love that ‘Legs For Days’ look? Alas. There is though a way to cleverly recreate the illusion through high-waisted trousers. Pair it with a cute top that’s worn tucked in, and let your legs do all the talking for the day!
WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR SOLIDS
Perhaps our favourite trick of all, is to wear solid-coloured separates that are a such a breath of fresh air when one finds herself stuck amidst a storm of printed fabrics in every corner. You can choose your pick from an endless array of colour, and let your monochrome outfit make you appear taller (and no less than a supermodel).
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HEELS
When the occasion calls for it, embrace the magic of a nice pair of heels and rock it like a true supermodel! Invest in a pair that lends you a few extra inches without compromising on style nor comfort. With it, also comes the added benefit of a super-straight posture (heels give you that).
