Ways to Look Taller and Slimmer

A petite stature has its advantages for instance, you always look younger than your actual age, and however there are some drawbacks. You need to choose clothes and accessories carefully because some combination can shorten your figure and private of all its gracefulness.


Let us follow on some advices I gathered from top stylists on how to accentuate a petite stature

  1. Tops and skirts

To look stunning you should remember about maintaining the right figure proportions. Your choice of cloths plays a significant part in this.


Wearing your top loose cuts your figure in half, making your torso look massive and longer and shorten your legs. It is better to wear the top tucked into the skirt as this will highlight the waist, lengthen the legs and make your figure slender and more fragile.

Another option is to wear a crop top and skirt set and you will notice a difference.

  1. Belts and shoes


When it comes to shoes, clashing colours or bulkiness can make your legs appear much shorter. If you like, wearing shoes or sandals that buckle at the ankle the straps should match the tone of your skin. In addition, you should avoid belts, a belt creating a visible horizontal line makes the torso look wider. Meanwhile vertical lines, a dress without a belt and lighter coloured shoes make you noticeably taller and slimmer.

  1. Jackets and blazers


Petite girls shouldn’t wear large or elongated jackets, suits or blazers. Visibly they shorten the legs and makes the silhouette blurred and unwieldy. Instead, choose jackets and blazers that are small and volume cropped and fitted up to the waist or slightly below. You should also choose your bags carefully, the shopper bags will make your overall image more cumbersome. The best option for a petite girl is a small bag of a width not exceeding 10 to 11 inches. If you prefer backpacks, they too should be small and have neat geometric shapes.

  1. Cardigans

Keep in mind that your cardigans must not be too bulky or have conspicuously large details such as sizable patch pockets. Long cardigans present an easy solution adding a few inches to your height without the help of high heels. Such clothing does a perfect job of creating uninterrupted vertical line, which visibly enhances your stature.

  1. Dresses


Voluminous dresses look best only on tall girls when worn by miniature beauties. They press the wearer’s figure down to the ground, shortening your silhouette and in particular your legs. Instead go with vintage sheath dresses, they suit petite women just fine, by giving them correct proportions and stretching the silhouette up well.

  1. Contrasts and monochromes

Contrasting colours in clothing such as a bright tough and dark bottom separate the figure in half, creating a horizontal boundary line that emphasizes your lack of height. In comparison, monochrome will noticeably lengthen the silhouette moreover, brightly coloured clothes look more voluminous.

  1. Jeans and tops

An ordinary t-shirt and jeans might divide your figure in half however, a cropped top is the perfect choice for women of small stature. Combining it with a high-waist jeans helps to lengthen your legs significantly.


Another option is to wear a crop top and skirt, try it and the results will leave you pleasantly surprised.
