We girls are sucker for fashion, aren’t we? But things get a bit jumbled up in case of the shorter girls. It is a common notion among people that nothing much fashionable would suit them—fashionable dresses, Indian or western, can be carried with élan only by girls with long legs and sleek body! If this is what keeps you from purchasing or trying out fashionable dresses, let’s break this stereotype! This article chalks all the fashion dos that shorter girls could follow to carry off simply any dress with confidence and style—
7. Girls, It’s Time To Bid Your Horizontal Patterned or Striped Clothes GOOD BYE!
Yea, we know that stripes are in big time, but we short girls do need to be a bit more conscious while making up our closet, don’t we? Just chuck out all your horizontal striped wears and fit in all your vertical striped and patterned dresses in your closet.
These dresses would go a long way to make you portray yourself leaner and taller than you already are! And, if you’re a petite person, don’t worry! It’ll simply end up making you apparently taller without making you look too thin!
6. Wedges and Platforms—Welcome Back!
You might be in love with your pencil heels, but for daily uses, we assure you that there’s nothing better than the trendy wedges and platforms.
If pencil heels and conical heels increase the oomph factor, then wedges and platforms, which are so “in” these days, increase the chic factor as well as make you visually much taller than you actually are!
5. Wear Your Hair Long!
Although the choice of hairstyle is absolutely one’s own, it is desirable for shorter girls to keep longer hair. This gives a leaner and taller effect to the whole body.
And, if you’re having frizzy hair, make sure you go through some smoothening treatment—frizz not only damages the hair but also gives a wider appearance to your entire body! Well, if you’ve a hair to flaunt, then you could go for curls too!
4. Bring Back All Those Shorts and Skirts Back!
Are you afraid of wearing short dresses, skirts and pants because of your height? Well, it’s time you take your height in your stead and go out to win the world! If you think that short dresses are only for those with never-ending legs, then think twice!
If Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman with heights much less than others can win the world, why can’t you? Confidence is the key to survive, my dear; height is just a number!
3. Maxi Dresses, Palazzos and Maxi Skirts Are For Thee Too!
One thing with shorter women is that most of them find nothing wearable which would suit them perfectly! In case of longer wears too, they mostly shy away! Chill, amigas!
Have you seen the poise and confidence with which Salma Hayek carries her floating dresses and gowns? Yes, she’s just 5’2” tall…so, you might as well try it!
2. Wear Well-Tailored Clothes
Wearing too loose or bulgy or balloon dresses or tops would make you look like fatter—and hence, shorter. However, wearing too tight a dress or a top might not always be a welcome option.
So, wear the dresses than fit you perfectly. Even if your size is unavailable, what are the tailors for? Get them altered to suit you, and see how great and adorable you look!
1. Chuck off those Loose Fitted Pants and Denims
Wide-legged and boot-cut pants and denims are so not “in” and so not for you, too! We don’t mean to discourage you, but the hipster pants and boot-cut denims which go tight half-way and just flatten up later on, somehow eats up your height!
It makes you look way shorter than you actually are! So, the next time you’re planning to buy trousers, simply steer clear of these. And, voila! You’re absolutely ready to rock the world.
