I'm Not Short, I'm Petite!

The term 'short' is so unfair to describe someone with, especially girls; the most beautiful and delicate creatures in the universe. So remember, she is not short -she is petite, not small, not tiny -just petite.

Be true to yourself and embrace what you've got. Turn heads with how amazing you look in every event, gathering or shopping spree! We’ve compiled some tips you can follow to achieve the best petite look ever.

1- First of all, you need to search and find the best tailor for you because you will need him A LOT. He is going to be your savior. You might even put his number on speed dial.

2- When thinking of petite women, you might get the image of girly clothes, but that is not the case. You will need to upgrade your ideas a little bit and kick it up a notch to a grown-up level. Just remove the pink thoughts for now and enjoy the sophisticated fashion vision for future you.

3- One of the most important things that you must keep in mind is that not every print is suitable for you. There is a simple rule here; just go for more vertical than horizontal. It will elongate your body and make you look taller than you actually are.

4- Don’t go for pop colors like hot pink and neon green; just stay on the simple side. Pop colors will make you look very tiny and they aren’t even fashionable at all.

5- Fitted garments are the best choice for you. They will define your good curves and make you look taller and slimmer when you go for dark colors. Oversized clothes will make you feel heavy and unattractive.

6- Maxis maxis maxis! You will fall in love with every maxi piece you own because you will get compliments every time. They will make you look taller, slimmer and way prettier.

7- Go for short dresses, skirts and shorts because they will compliment your legs and make them look longer. Just remember not to go way too short or way too long with shorts.

8- Pants are a deal breaker for you -if you choose the wrong pair the outfit will be horrible. Flared and cropped jeans are the best for a casual look, while slim black pants for a morning meeting are the right way to go. Never, ever think of going for oversized pants -you don’t want to look like a potato sack!

9- Remember that it is best to tuck your T-shirt or blouse into your pants/skirt, because this will make you feel taller with a waistline as clear as sunshine.

10- Heels are your best friend! You will need every centimeter in this heel to make you taller. So pick the most comfortable and most practical heels to become your bestie for a long, long time. Go for simple black, nude or white heels that can work for any outfit and for any occasion.

11- Please ignore big lousy bags and stay with the small chic ones; the big bags will show how small you are, while small bags will show that you have a body that can rock any outfit.

12- And the last, most important tip of them all: CONFIDENCE. It is your personal weapon that can make you rule the world and rock anything you wear -even a trash bag. Just be confident and you will be the queen of your own world.
