For those of you who don’t already know, I’m petite.
Technically 5’4″ and under is considered petite.
Did you know 40% of American women are petite?
I didn’t… until I looked it up on Wikipedia.
Hard to imagine we used to look stuff up in Encylopedias, huh?
So you are petite? It presents some challenges.
You have to hem a lot of pants and skirts.
Sometimes maxi dresses are too long, even with your highest heels.
‘Cute’ is a word often used to describe you.
But, don’t fret, you can still look amazing!
And, for those days you need to feel a little taller…
There are some simple tricks you can employ.
1) V-neck or Scoop Neck Tops
These will elongate your upper body
2) Vertical Stripes
Create the illusion of height
Hem your jeans and pants 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch off the ground…
to look as long and tall as possible.
4) Wear All One Color
Don’t break up the line.
Try wearing all one color from head-to-toe. You will look taller.
5) Long Necklaces
Will help elongate your upper body
6) High-Waisted Trousers & Jeans
Will make your legs look longer
7) Wear Heels
It’s a no-brainer, wearing heels can make you look taller. Try wedges if you struggle to walk in heels.
Chunky heels are also easier to walk in.
