As of now, you are feeling great about your body frame then we should talk about how we can look stylish and flatter our body frame.
Dressing tips and tricks:
Though petite doesn’t mean short and skinny, you can be short and have any figure type such as curvy, hourglass, pear, apple, inverted triangle and rectangle etc. Therefore, you need to understand your body shape and dress accordingly.
For example: If you are blessed with amazing curves than you need to balance your outfits. Try to wear v necklines and vertical stripes. All over patterns will balance out the whole frame.
Meantime, if there are times when you do not want to flaunt your curves then make the black colour your best friend and shake hands with layering style. You can also try your hands on refined minimal, tailored styles.
Other hacks for petite body frames are:
-> Even if you selected the smallest size of specific cloth and it’s still not fitting you well then you can try layering to fake the perfect fit or do some alterations at home as per your convenience.
-> Either focus on your legs or on the torso which means either wear a crop top and high waist bottoms or wear above the knee length dresses and so on. This trick will flatter your body frame.
-> Hunt the petite-friendly brands because nothing can beat the clothes which are made to fit you.
-> Tuck in your shirts and tops as it makes a significant change.
-> Invest on the minimal accessory like slim belts, medium to small sized handbags and delicate jewellery. Keep your self away from bulky belts and oversized bags.
-> Get your hands on some beautiful heels which comfortable too. Opt for the pointed toes as it looks great on a petite frame. Invest in neutral tones as they go with almost any outfit and the nude one gives you the elongated frame.
-> Opt for the dresses which either ankle length or above knee length, calf length clothes do not flatter the most petite body type.
-> The monochrome outfit is your best friend as it adds grace to your body type.
Clothes you should wear if you are a petite:
High waist jeans:
In case, you do not want to wear heels, wear straight fit or slim fit jeans. Also, fold from bottoms if needed.
Whenever you want to wear heels, palazzos are the perfect outfit pick for that mood. In case, of “no heel today” mood you can try cropped flares or tailored trousers.
Instead of oversized layering try perfectly tailored clothes for layering.
In footwear, ankle boots suit the petite frame better than mid-calf boots. Also, instead of ankle-strap heels, try those who have a low-cut vamp.
