Styling Hacks That Make Short Girls Look Taller
If you’re 5’4″ or under, you’ve likely discovered some serious advantages in life, like being able to sit comfortably in a car full of people or having an amazing selection of shoe options on the sale rack. However, a tiny frame presents a daily challenge when it comes to piecing together outfits that don’t overwhelm your small stature. We’re sharing seven styling hacks that celebrate your pint-sized proportions.
Petite women can wear short skirts and frocks without it looking inappropriate—something many taller women struggle with. Take advantage of the fact that you can pull them off and make your legs look longer by donning a short hemline. Tip: Wrap options or ones with slits are especially great at visually elongating the body.
