Hey guys! If you don’t know already, I’m only around 158cm. I may not be able to change that fact, but I can pick out outfits that change the way I appear by knowing what not to wear. I’ve listed alternatives of what to avoid when it comes to shopping & picking my outfits:
- TURTLE NECKS instead of OVERSIZED SWEATERS
Sweaters are perfect to fight the cold with style, but baggy and long ones are a no-go for us!
- PLATFORM HEELS instead of ANKLE STRAP HEELS
Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about being taller than our dates with heels on. But, we have to be smart in picking heels that will elongate our legs, not the opposite. Ankle strap heels they tend to make our legs look shorter, so it should be avoided especially if it’s paired with a short dress. They’ll transform your look, but importantly, they’re more comfortable too!
- SKINNY JEANS instead of BOYFRIEND JEANS
Again, boyfriend jeans give off the baggy and loose vibe. In general, it will make us appear smaller or shorter. Unless you’re going for a chill afternoon look, fitted skinny jeans/leggings is the best option for us!
- SHORT FITTING TOPS instead of TUNIC TOPS
Tunic tops look elegant and fitting when you’re tall, but I think it lengthens petite sized upper body and shrinks our legs. To maximize your height, any midriff tanks or tops would be a better alternative.
- BOOTIES instead of MID-CALF BOOTS
Unfortunately long sexy and elegant boots just look unflattering for our legs. Dainty ankle boots with a little boost of height will not only make you appear taller overall, but also with slimmer and longer legs.
- SKIRTS instead of BURMUDA SHORTS
Not for us! We get away with wearing shorter shorts, so why not show a little more skin? If not, a tight fitted skirt will do too!
As much as I want to love some of the items above, my experiences have made me realize that other options create a better result for me. However, these are just personal opinions but let me know your thoughts and whether it was helpful for in the comments below J
