Petite women though attractive, need to choose their attire carefully and wisely. Dressing up petite women is all about creating the illusion of more and less i.e. more height and less bulk. So, the next time you set out for a picnic or an office party, make sure to follow these dressing tips to create magic with your own illusions.
Dress in a Single Color
This is the key to giving you a slender look and illusion of added height. Using a single color for dressing from head to toe makes you look taller since people will not differentiate between your body parts and notice how short your legs are or how small your neck is. Wear matching stockings or tights with the dress. Always prefer dark shades. Colors like black, burgundy, deep green; purple and charcoal make you look slimmer.
Check for Accurate Fit
Fitting clothes do not mean extremely tight clothes that almost look like second skin. Semi-fitted or fitted apparel go well with your structure and do not have unnecessary designs to make you look heavier than you really are.
Wear Garments with Vertical Lines
Clothes with vertical lines, not necessary striped can trick you into looking taller. You can count on vertical seam lines to bring about the effect.
Select Clothes with V or U Shaped Necklines
Whether it is a dress or top, V and U shaped necklines aid in creating the illusion of height quite successfully.
Mini skirts and dress frocks may look great on women with long slender legs, but for diminutive ones, it simply adds bulk to their look. In fact it makes the short legs look even shorter. So, ensure that you simply cut these off from your wardrobe list.
High Heeled Shoes & Medium Purses
These two accessories play an important role when it comes to make a petite woman appear leaner. High heeled cushioned shoes are the best and easiest option to add to your height. On the other hand, refrain from wearing strapped heel sandals. They make you look smaller.
Coming to bags, carry something medium in size that complements you. A large bag could be overwhelming for your small frame.
