It's a great time to be experimenting with clothes due to the wide array of clothing and shopping choices these days. There are various stores and brands that offer pieces in different sizes and styles, so whether you're tall, slim, plump, or petite, there are definitely a lot of options available to you.
Other people may think that dressing petite girls are very easy, but that's not entirely true. Sometimes there are also challenges such as finding the right length for a pair of pants, a dress, or even a top.
Nevertheless, with these styling tips for petite ladies, picking out clothes and dressing up will surely be a breeze for you.
Show your curves
Petite women are not only short and slim; they can also have a fuller body and be bustier than other petites. So if you're petite with a fuller body, the very first thing you need to do is to embrace and celebrate your shape. That means emphasizing your curves. You can do this by wearing empire waists or a fitted top paired with a high-low skirt.
Layer it up
For petite ladies who are slim, finding the perfect size can be tricky. We bet your heart has been crushed over and over again because the smallest size of a certain garment is still too big for you. Don't worry, though, because you can still get that piece if you really love it. Work around it by layering with a cardigan, sweater, or jacket. You can certainly pull this off especially during cold weather.
Cuff long sleeves at the elbow
Long sleeves can easily make petite women look like they have smaller frame, and sometimes the sleeves are also just a bit too long. What you can do, though, is to roll up your sleeves at the elbow.
Cuff long jeans
This is probably the most difficult thing about being a petite girl — finding the right length of jeans. If you have a pair that's too long, you can either roll up the hem or tuck them under.
Pair maxis with fitted tops
Yes, you can definitely wear that maxi skirt! But remember that you need to balance out a roomy cut with a fitted or tucked top.
