FASHION GUIDE FOR PETITE WOMEN – 5 TRICKS TO LOOK TALLER INSTANTLY!

APPEAR 10CM TALLER WITHOUT WEARING HEELS!

Asian women are generally smaller in physique, and if not being careful, could be made to look visually short and fat. Are you constantly envious of people who are tall or lamenting that you need to put on heels to look taller? Actually, being short isn’t such a big problem; the key lies in choosing the right clothes and coordinating them skillfully to visually elongate your body. Here are 5 must-have items for petite women to look taller, artfully demonstrated by celebrities no taller than 5 foot 4 (approximately 1.62 to 1.63m)!

1. HIGH-RISE PANTS / SKIRTS

For petite women, low-rise pants of the revived Y2K fashion trends this year may not be their cup of tea. Meanwhile, high-rise pants or skirts can visually lengthen the lower torso and make one look taller. Emma Roberts and Victoria Beckham, being just 1.56m and 1.63m in height respectively, are fond of wearing high-rise pants to make their legs look longer. Emma Robert’s black slim-fit jeans make her legs look longer and also slimmer, while Victoria Beckhams’ green, high-rise flared trousers, paired with a thin black belt, further highlight the curves of her legs.

2. SHORT JACKETS

One way to make your waist look shorter and legs longer is to wear short jackets. Sydney Sweeney and Megan Fox, both around 1.6m tall, wear short jackets and crop tops showing their midriff to draw attention to their upper torso. If you are not too confident about your body, you can wear a one-piece dress paired with a short/cropped blazer to highlight your waist.

3. VERTICAL STRIPE CLOTHES / PANTS

Some people say that horizontal stripes make one look fatter, while vertical stripes thinner. This saying seems aptly valid when applied to the topic of how petite women should dress to look tall and slim. Being only 1.55m tall, Vanessa Hudgens uses tone on tone styling, matching her dark blue crop top with light blue vertical stripe flared trousers. The coherence in color creates an elongating visual effect, making her look taller on the whole. Chloe Grace Moretz, who is 1.63m tall, wears a vertical stripe suit paired with a simple white shirt, creating the perfectly neat smart casual look.

4. MINI SKIRTS / SHORTS

Mini skirts or shorts with a cinched waist design can raise the waist line and highlight the legs, making them look long and slender. Emma Roberts wearing the black suit with mini shorts demonstrates this effect nicely. She adds a long coat to create layering without covering her gorgeous body. Jisoo, 1.62m tall, wears a tight-fitting black mini dress paired with lace-up sandals to highlight her beautiful and lithesome legs.

5. NUDE SHOES

Nude shoes are said to be the savior of petite women. The saying “Nude is the new Black” equates nude with the classic black to become the must-have staple for modern women. Nude shoes increase the exposure of the legs and seemingly become the extension of them. Kim Kardashian, 1.6m tall, wears a pair of nude strappy sandals when going out, which not only makes her legs look longer, but also emphasizes her slender feet, creating a sexy look on the whole.
