Wardrobe Tips for Petite Women

When you're a short woman, sometimes shopping for perfect clothing items isn't easy. You probably tend to make adjustments to your pants because somehow any pair you buy ends up too long for your height, and shopping for blazers can be a nightmare too. However, when it comes to the rest of the wardrobe, petite ladies can stay carefree because we have a few tips that will make dressing up much easier in the future.

Vertical stripes to visually elongate you
The goal for every petite person is to make their figure visually longer and appear taller. Vertical stripes are the perfect way to do it. Therefore, the next time you go shopping look for dresses, trousers and pants featuring vertical stripes. Furthermore, if you're also a bit on the plumper side, vertical stripes will visually slim your figure, offering you double benefits. Aside from wearing vertical stripes, you should also try to create vertical lines with your clothes. Open jackets and cardigans will help you do that flawlessly, and if your cardigan and dress are the same length, you'll create vertical lines flawlessly. Sleeveless vests will also look great on you so be sure to have one in your wardrobe. To create vertical lines with button shirt dresses, go for those that stop just above or at the knee.

Choose dresses wisely
Dresses are petite women's best friends. However, you should still choose wisely because not every dress will help you look taller. Wrap dresses are a phenomenal choice because they are universally flattering. Whether you want to create an illusion of the curves or emphasize your curvaceous figure, a wrap dress will be the right pick. Check out a wide assortment of trendy dresses online and you'll certainly be able to find a fashionable Realisation Par dress to fit your figure.

Another type of dress perfect for short women is fit and flare dresses. They'll look great on your small frame and perfectly conceal your tummy if that's some of your troubled areas. Fit and flare dresses that hit 3-4 inches above your knees are the best choice. Empire waistline dresses will create the illusion of much longer legs because their waistline is high and sometimes it is placed just below the bust line.

High-waisted pieces for better proportions
To create the illusion of height, opt for high-waisted pieces, such as high-waisted pants. Instead of short trousers and pants that stop at the ankle, opt for high-waisted pants that you'll match with heels and you'll create a long vertical image. Match a cropped top with high-waisted trousers and your legs will instantly look longer. A high-waisted skirt that falls just below or on top of the knee will also visually elongate your legs. A tucked-in top will also look amazing if tucked in wide high-waisted pants.

Wear different types of heels
An obvious choice of footwear would be any shoe with a heel. However, even though you want to look taller, it doesn't mean you should go for too high heels. If you wear heels that are too high, your body will very likely look out of proportion. Slingback kitten heels would be a good choice as well as wedge sandals. A pair of clear or lace-up heels will also create the illusion of longer legs.

Dressing up when you're short isn't always easy, but fortunately, you can pick up a few tricks that will help you look taller than you are. From matching cropped tops and high-waisted bottoms through wearing wrap, fit and flare and empire waistline dresses to making sure you add some height to your figure with heels, there's an array of hacks that will create the illusion of tallness and make you feel better in your own skin.
