Shop vertical stripes
Just like horizontal stripes make you look heavy, vertical ones can make you look taller. While thin stripes are better, thick ones when worn well work just as well. Choose t-shirts, shirts and jackets which have vertical stripes on them.
Ankle straps are a big ‘No’
Again, by the same logic ankle straps also tend to make you look shorter and stockier and do your petite frame more harm than good. If you like strappy sandals, say hello to heels.
Ditch the shirt dress
These maybe comfortable but they are the least flattering outfit for your body type. Shirt dresses owing to their lack of distinguished and sharp silhouettes tend to give you a square shaped look, which you obviously aren’t looking for.
Wear deeper necklines
A deep V neckline can elongate your frame and make you look taller. However, for short busty women this could pose as a problem too.
Invest in maxis
If you like wearing maxis, go right ahead and wear them. Just make sure than they are the right fight. Maxis than narrow down at the bottom are the best kinds for a short frame.
