You’ve got a lot of curves, but not so much height, so shopping for a dress can seem like a daunting task. Petite clothes are geared toward women with slimmer figures, but standard plus size clothes are too long, so it’s not as easy as just shopping in a certain section of the store. here are some petite fashion guidance for finding the best dress for you.
1. pick the best hemlineYou’ll drown in a floor-length dress, and tea-length hemlines will make you look even shorter than you are. What does work for you? Dresses best at the knee. Keeping your calves visible will elongate your legs, while covering your thighs will create sleeker lines in your figure.
2. keep it simpleMonochromatic dressing– one shade from head to toe– is always flattering. even if you want to add pops of color with your accessories , we suggest solid colors for your dresses. A single hue is a much more tailored look, while patterns and multiple colors will chop up your body and add bulk to the wrong places.
3. Watch your waistAn empire waistline will raise the focus to bust level, making your torso and legs all of a sudden seem much longer. Whatever waistline you choose, just make sure the dress has one. A trapeze dress is not for you, but a belted one looks fabulous.
4. Be careful with accessoriesYou can wear the ideal dress and completely ruin it with the wrong accessories. With a dress, we like the idea of a long necklace, which adds height, and bold earrings, which bring attention upward. We don’t suggest big bangles and bags, which as bulk and shorten your arms.
5. get it tailoredWhatever it is, it will look better after it’s tailored. Petite women tend to actually look much more put-together than their taller counterparts because they’ve learned the value of a good tailor. If the dress is a little too long or doesn’t fit quite best in a certain area, but you love it otherwise, go ahead and purchase it! A tailor can turn it into your dream dress.
