Your Body type

Petite Body Frame

  • You are well-proportioned.
  • You sometimes feel short and stubby and you're not sure why.
  • You are 5'3" or under.
  • You still want to dress just as grown as taller women but not be over-powered by the clothes.
  • You want a closet full of clothes that elongates your small frame.

How to dress Petite?

  • Blouses that go just past your waist are most flattering. If the top hits right at the hip, it lengthens the mid-drift.
  • V-neck and scoop-neck tops are fabulous basics.
  • Belted wraps and fitted blazers create that grown-up look.
  • Try to stay away from the big, over-powering prints and patterns.
  • The classic a-line or pencil skirt is a must for most professional or formal occasions.
  • Skirts with a hemline just above the knee are best.
  • For jeans, go for low-rise and fitted around the waist and hips. Boot-cut or straight are the best style for elongating.
  • For dresses, pick V-neck lines
  • Details on the bust-line lengthen and draw the eyes up.
