If you’re somewhere around the 5’3″ mark, then you’re no doubt used to being in dressing rooms trying on laughably long jeans or dresses that make you look a foot shorter than you are.
Well, those days are over, my petite friends.
There are some hacks you can deploy to make short shopping a breeze!
Just follow our simple guide…
Cinch in your waist
Wherever you can, make sure to cinch in your waist. Whether you use a belt or a waistline to do this, it will elongate your frame and give you that gorgeous hourglass figure.
Wear pointed shoes with your short dresses or skirts
There’s just something about a pointed-toe shoe or boot that draws the eye down, making your legs look a mile long!
Opt for cropped denim
While it might seem counterintuitive to wear cropped items, the high-waisted, fitted cut and a clever flash of ankle gives the impression that you are taller than you are.
Good tailoring is super important
Perfectly fitting pieces are the key to looking taller and generally more put together so there is no reason to avoid suit pieces as a petite girl – as long as they are tailored!
Even small heels make a difference
Saving the most obvious for last. Of course wearing heels will make you look taller. And if you can’t bear a high heel? Fear not because comfy block heeled mules are so in!
