When most petite girls think of a fashion cheat to look taller, their first thought is high heels. However, there are many clever fashion tricks and ways you can appear taller.
The best part of styling yourself to create the optical illusion of being taller than your DNA allows is that most of the items you need are already in your wardrobe. Here are style tips for petite women to look taller:
High Waisted Trousers Or Skirts
When shopping for trousers or skirts, go for the ones with high waist (even your shorts should be high waisted). High waisted trousers significantly give an illusion of longer legs. This is one of the major style tips for petite women.
Maxi skirts and dresses are always trendy so you can hardly go wrong in this. Ensure your maxi is floor length in order to give your lower body a vertical look and make sure it is form fitting. Pair your long maxi skirt with stylish flats and you are good to go.
The most suitable print for petite women is vertical stripes. Whether it is a dress, skirt or trousers, always opt for slim-fit or with an A-line silhouette as vertical prints give you an appearance of someone tall.
With deep V-necklines, your neck gets a longer look and you get the illusion of a longer torso.
Accessorise With Longer Necklaces
Accessories come in handy when it comes to appearing taller or having a longer body. For instance, long necklaces create the illusion of height without breaking up the body.
Short Hair, Longer Body
As a petite woman, you should avoid long hairdos as it makes you look smaller. Shorter hair length makes you appear taller but if you love long hair, opt for a top knot as it would give you a taller impression.
