If you are a woman who is 5’4 and under then you probably were called ‘petite’ many times. At the same time, petite women come in all shapes and sizes. And I know how hard it can be to find something that suits you perfect usually, even clothes of your size looks bigger or smaller than it should be.
Most of the times ladies end up custom making most of their dresses and clothes that they need.
Also, sometimes we feel like we want to what makes us look taller or at least the ultimate look.
So, check these easy tips that will change the game if to use them correctly. Remember, clothes won’t replace the power of self-confidence and comfort, so love yourself because it’s the main thing that matters.
Do high waists trousers
From jeans to skirts, high-waisted bottoms create the illusion of longer legs by shortening the torso.
Wear maxi with splits
Maxi dresses will tend to have the effect of swamping shorter girls, especially if the sleeves are long.
A dress with a side split will counteract the blocky, frumpy feel these kinds of dresses can create, giving more definition and balance to smaller figures.

Buy skirts that are either above the knee or on the knee
Take a skirt that shows a little more leg, and wear styles with more movement (flared or skater are best) to elongate your legs even further.
This choice of skirts helps to accentuate your body and makes you look less shabby. Midi and maxi skirts can be really tricky to wear if you’re a petite girl, as they’ll only serve to make you look shorter.
Do more of ankle boots
Let’s face it, anything above the ankle just cuts off your already short legs at unflattering places.
Ankle boots give the illusion that you got long, sexy legs.
Avoid wide-legged trouser
If you’re naturally small then big, baggy fabric is going to swamp your figure. If you can, find well-fitted petite trousers, like these from Next, which will be tailored much better to your needs.
If you can’t find a petite style you like, go for a tapered, cropped trouser which you’ll find will fit you like a full-leg trouser.
