Women having delicate, petite and curvaceous figure need to prolong their body by using appropriate clothing style and minimizing their volume. Short women need to follow some tricks in order to cover some faults of figure. Main motive of petite or short women is to elongate their body. But at times they make fashion mistakes in terms of clothing which make them all the more short and petite.
Most common mistake done by women is that they use pieces of clothes as jackets and belts in the wrong proportions. Wearing blouses of different color with large and wide belts on top of skirts or pants cuts your body in two parts that retract everyone attention towards shortness of your figure.
Avoid wearing extra fabric around your waist as you already possess a good amount of fats in this area. Apart from this, its a big illusion that long skirts make your legs look long. But the fact is that very long and baggy skirts make your legs shorter. The skirts can make you look taller if they are straight and go down to the ankle level. You can also elongate your legs by wearing straight pants that cover your shoes. Definitely this trick will add extra inches to your legs. Monochromatic type of clothing is perfect for petite women which render taller and slimmer appeal. Always remember oversize t-shirts don't hide extra pounds instead they make one look shapeless.
Try to avoid thick fabric clothing as it adds extra weight to your figure. Vertical line pattern also helps you in elongating your body but dont overdo it as too many stripes may end looking like a zebra. One or two vertical lines are enough on a pair of jeans or pants and they will lend an illusion of a taller person. Avoid wearing clothing items with multiple vertical lines or mixing two garments with lines pattern.
Tight fitting clothes are risky and they can reveal the best of your body. Too tight means too bad for your body. Always wear clothes that cover and hide faulty areas of your body like your tummy. Never show an open view of these areas as this will draw attention to some wrong part of body.
Last but not least, petite women must always wear high heels. Matching stilettos with long and straight pants is the key which will make you look taller and slimmer in any situation. And finally, any fault of figure can be hidden by using the right piece of clothing.
