Petite elegance

Let’s talk about better living! Our new interactive family corner aims to expand our lifestyle horizons with practical little pearls of wisdom from the editor and input from our readers.

Being on the petite side in no way means you are short on options when it comes to finding clothes. A petite lady ends up with a distinct feeling that most clothes just do not fit right and that clothes makers are catering to a taller-than-average shopper. You can feel sexy and confident by following these  tips that will make shopping easier while rocking the latest summer trends.

Opt for the right size print
Avoid very large-coloured prints; they can overwhelm your frame. Prints should make a statement without being too overwhelming.

Go for V-necks
Keep your eye out for v-nick tops or dresses. They lengthen your look and flatter your petite frame.

It’s all about proportion
Remember, you can wear almost anything, as long as it’s the right proportion to your petite frame. You have to pay particular attention to where things fall on your body. Make sure the tops of sleeves sit on your shoulder, that skirt lengths do not fall on in the mid-calf region and that sleeves are not too long.

Combine high and low
The high-waisted look elongates the frame and looks great on petite girls. Pair it with a top tucked in and you will look fabulous.

Wear all one color
Wearing everything in one colour helps create a vertical line and can look super chic.
