One of the most frequently asked questions I received in May was what to wear if you’re short or better said 5’3’’ and below. Of course not everyone is blessed with long legs, but there are plenty of advantages to being petite. You can wear any kind of heel height and pull off countless looks. Most short ladies don’t realise this as it’s often thought you should avoid maxi dresses or even jumpsuits. Let me first get one thing straight, you can wear almost any look you like as long as you keep these rules in mind.
Tip: Add heels. Aside from ankle straps which cut off your legs, any kind of heel is perfect for lengthening. From sleek courts to shorter kitten heels and elegant wedges, especially in a nude colourway.
Tip: If you’re partial to prints, vertical stripes are a great choice for stretching your silhouette.
Tip: Seek out a good tailor to take up the hem on styles that fall a little bit too long.
Tip: Take note of the neckline. V-necks and deep, round necks give the illusion of height.
