One of the paramount rules of fashion is to dress according to your body type. Trends will come and go, but the trick is to understand what best suits your body structure and implement that by giving it your own twist. Today, let’s focus on the style do’s-and-don’ts short women should follow because let’s face it, most things, especially clothes, are not designed keeping short people in mind. How many times have you been excited to try a new trend and stood in the dressing room in something oversized and disappointed?
Well, worry not! Here are a few tips you can follow and trends you can avoid to make sure your style game is on fleek and you are always looking your best!
A shift dress is a short girl’s best friend. Anything with a high hemlines is perfect, as it focuses on and accentuates your legs and makes you appear taller.
Anything high-waisted, be it pants or a skirt, is an absolute must-have! Proportions are extremely important and a garment with a high-waist helps give the impression of a lean silhouette. Avoid palazzos, culottes and anything that ends below the knee.
A-line skirts are another great option. Not only are they extremely cute, but comfortable and perfect for your day-to-day clothing. Maxi dresses and skirts are not preferable, but if you absolutely want to, go for one with a high slit.
Opt for vertical stripes as compared to horizontal stripes, which make you appear broader. Choose tops with a deep neckline as it will help focus on your torso and give it a lean look.
Comfort flats are always the best option. However, if you prefer wearing heels, you cannot do without a pair of wedges. Wedges are the most comfortable thing ever. You could probably wear them the entire day with no sore feet. Perfect, aren’t they?!
