5 Rules For Petite Women

1.Wear Monochrome
Monochrome is big news for spring/ summer 2014 which is great news for you! Wearing one block of colour can really elongate the figure, and black and white work best. Try to avoid wearing lots of different shades all in one look as this will have the opposite effect.
2. Opt for high-waist
Many smaller women feel that high-waist trousers and skirts are out of the question for a shorter frame, but they couldn’t be more wrong. A high waist creates the illusion of longer legs and elongates the silhouette.
3. Avoid cropped trousers
Cropped trousers that finish just above the ankle can actually make your legs look thicker and shorter. Elongate pins with longer hems that cover the tops of your shoes.
4. Get the fit right
Smaller women should choose clothes that fit and sculpt the body rather than drown and overwhelm them (this can make you appear bigger than you are). Think of Kylie – her petite frame is always at its best in sculpting dresses.
5. Beware of belts
Belts are a popular way to cinch in the waist, but beware of wider styles that cut your body in half and ruin any chance of elongating the silhouette. Skinner belts work best if your outfit does need a bit of definition.
