How Short Women Should Dress (9 Tips)

How Short Women Should Dress

Trying to find clothing that fits properly when you have a shorter stature might be a bit of a struggle. But that isn’t something that absolutely has to be the case.

Sometimes giving the impression that one is just a hair or two taller can help a person feel more confident.

Here are nine tips on how shorter women should style their clothing and look taller.

  1. The first and most obvious tip is that you should wear heels. They will give the appearance that you are taller than you actually are. If you can’t wear high heels, go with kitten heels.
  2. Pair your short skirt with a pair of pointed shoes or boots. This type of footwear might give the impression that the wearer has slightly longer legs.
  3. Put on a lengthy coat. When you have a leaner, more streamlined appearance, people will automatically assume that you are taller.
  4. Show your waist. For example, wear a belt with a blazer.
  5. Go tonal. This is an excellent choice for women who are shorter. If you wear the same color from head to toe, you may direct the viewer’s attention all the way down. The use of contrasting colors might draw attention to a shorter torso or legs.
  6. Wear pants with high waist. By drawing attention to your waist, the high rise creates the impression of having longer legs.
  7. If you want to give the impression that you are taller than you actually are, one trick you can use is to wear cropped, fitted jeans and reveal some of your ankle.
  8. If you want to pull off the oversized look, choose just one piece for the top half, such a cropped jacket, and a piece that is more form-fitting on the bottom half, like leggings.
  9. Be sure that the pieces you buy are tailored to your body type. The challenge is in finding a good tailor in the event that you purchase an item that is too long or too big for you.
