Petite Fashion: 10 Best Style Tips and Tricks for Women Who Are 5’4 And Under

114

If you are a woman who is 5’4 and under then you probably were called ‘petite’ many times. At the same time, petite women come in all shapes and sizes. And we in Nexter.org know how hard it could be to find something that suits you perfect – usually, even clothes of your size looks bigger or smaller than it should be. 

Also, sometimes we feel like we want to make us look taller or at least the ultimate look.

So, check these easy tips that will change the game if to use them correctly. And remember, clothes won’t replace the power of self-confidence and comfort, so love yourself because it’s the main thing that matters.

1. High-waisted bottoms are your best friend

From jeans to skirts, high-waisted bottoms create the illusion of longer legs by shortening the torso.

2. Vertical stripes change everything

Vertical stripes, in particular, are great for lengthening and creating an elongated silhouette.

3. Cropped tops

Wearing a crop top is easy, but specifically with outerwear, cropped jackets help create that rule of thirds by “breaking up” the proportions of your body into three.

4. Bigger not always better – choose small bags

A huge tote is cute, but if you’re short, carrying a big bag can be a little overwhelming for your outfit. So invest in a cute little purse that has just enough room for the essentials.

5. Monochrome color schemes

While I know it’s summer and bright colors are in, black and white are simple and easy color choices to style around—especially when colorful items from brands can be very limited to regular sizing only. If neutral colors are the only options you have, go all out and go monochrome with them.

6. Wear maxi with split

Maxi dresses will tend to have the effect of swamping shorter girls, especially if the sleeves are long.

A with a side split will counteract the blocky, frumpy feel these kinds of dresses can create, giving more definition and balance to smaller figures.

7. Your skirts should sit just on or above the knees

Take a skirt that shows a little more leg, and wear styles with more movement (flared or skater are best) to elongate your legs even further.

8. Avoid wide-leg trousers

9. Ankle boots, not knee-high

Because, let’s face it, anything above the ankle just cuts off your already short legs at unflattering places.

10. Use layers to fake a perfect fit

If an item is fine in some spots but too big in others, use layers to strategically cover the latter.

11. Cuff long shirts at the elbow

Flowy long-sleeved shirts sometimes dwarf smaller frames. Cuffed sleeves (and a quick tuck) can break things up and emphasize the shape.

12. Pair shoes and bottoms that are similar in color

The matched color scheme helps create the illusion of a longer line.
