If you are 5 ft 4 in or under, finding CHIC clothes may be challenging. Don’t let your height challenge your ability to be CHIC. Short Girls Rejoice! Here are a few tips to make you look slimmer and taller in any style.
The first is the most obvious. Want to look taller? Wear heels. Heels are a must for the vertically impaired. High-heeled shoes guarantees that your legs will look longer and leaner.
Want to get on the boot trend for Fall/Winter? Make sure the hem of your skirt comes close to the top of the boot. This creates an unbroken line to help give a slenderizing effect.
If your not wearing riding boots, skirts should be slightly above the knee and always worn with heels. Below the knee skirts tend to make the short statured woman look stubby.
Watch your colors. Contrasting colors – Black Skirt/White Shirt – is not always the best idea. Sometimes wearing the same color from head to toe creates a continuous flow.
Learn to blend similar colored shoes and tights to appear taller.
These are just the basics, but remember, being short should not hinder your ability to be CHIC!
