Jeans and maxi dresses are too long
Jeans, jumpsuits, wide-leg trousers and maxi dresses or too long. If you are 5 feet like me even petite maxi dresses don’t fit you everytime.
Finding the right skirt length
The most important styling aspect petite women need to take into consideration proportion. In this sense, you need to avoid clothes and styles that cut down on your height, making you look smaller than you already are. Hence finding the perfect knee length skirt, midi skirt or even mini skits are a big challenge.
Making tops with large sleeves work for your body
What would be worse than tops with large sleeves making you look short. Wearing tops with large sleeves are almost a no-no for petite women who don’t want to appear smaller than they already are. Large sleeves look good on tall girls and being petite it’s almost not possible to wear them without being consumed in it.
Wearing fluffy sweaters being petite and curvy
I love fluffy sweaters as they keep you warm but fluffy sweaters, coats or jerseys, and ponchos or tunic tops create too much volume in the upper body area, adding volume horizontally will only diminish your height and make you appear smaller.
Layering clothes without looking bulky
Excess fabric and too much layering definitely make petite girls like me bulky. This is a big challenge for me however I think choosing the right fabric can help you layer without looking bulky. You can check out my layering tips here.
