6 Style Tips Every Petite Woman Should Read
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Are you under 5 foot four inches and looking for some style inspiration? If so, you’re in luck, as we’re offering helpful fashion advice to complement your tiny frame. Whether you’re a size 00 or a size 16, read our six style tips that every petite woman should read.
Balance Your Bust
Are you a petite woman with a big bust? You might find it difficult to find the right style of clothing for your body shape. You will, however, be happy to learn that there are styles that can highlight your beautiful body shape. For example, empire waists can be the perfect fit, as they can nip beneath the bust-line, while a fitted top can be perfectly combined with a stylish high-low skirt. Try to balance a fitted base with an outer layer, which will highlight your shape rather than detract from it.
Discover the Perfect Shoes
One of the best things about the kids’ section is the affordable footwear, right? You can often find the best sneakers and flats for a fraction of the adult sizes, which can save you a considerable amount of money. However, you might find it difficult to discover a stunning pair of heels, ankle boots or sandals in your size. You will, however, be happy to learn that there are shoes to complement your size. Visit Pretty Small Shoes to discover beautiful footwear for your petite feet.
One common fashion complaint is that some clothes fit perfectly in some places, but not others. Layers are therefore a petite woman’s best friend. You can utilize layers to cover any areas that are little bit too big on the body, so it’s a great way to fake the perfect fit.
The Best Maxi Dress Style
Do you long to wear a maxi dress? Well, there is no reason why you can’t. However, we recommend you avoid a roomy cut that features a lot of material. Balance a voluminous maxi dress at the bottom with a top that is either fitted or tucked. It’s the perfect style for the summer season.
Turn to a Tailor
Wear the perfect fashion for your body by turning to a professional tailor, who can help customize an outfit, jacket or coat to your exact body shape. While it can be a little more expensive, tailoring classic pieces will ensure you look stunning year after year, so it’s certainly a worthwhile investment.
Cuff Your Sleeves and Jeans
Don’t dwarf your petite frame with long-sleeved shirts. Instead, cuff the sleeves to add texture and style to an outfit, which will also enhance your body shape, so you’ll stand out for all the right reasons. The same goes for a long pair of jeans, too. Instead of allowing them to hang over your feet, cuff your jeans or tuck them in for a trendy style.
