We often find that curvy petites have trouble finding clothes that flatter their body type. We want to give them some tips on how they can look slim and tall for their body type and still wear the latest trends.
It is not always what you wear, it is how you wear it. A lot of people believe that the way to make oneself look taller is by wearing longer garments. However, this can be a misconception. Here are a few tips on how to make yourself look taller in clothes.
Wear Fitted Clothes
Curvy petite women should avoid wearing clothes that are too loose or too tight, which emphasizes either your curves or lack thereof, respectively.
Instead, they should wear clothes that are fitted but not baggy, drawing attention to your curves in a way that makes you look slim and tall.
Choose these types of dresses to look slimmer.
Wear Lighter Colors
Lighter colors will help make you look taller because it will be easier for others to see your figure through the color of your clothing.
Wear heels 👠 that match your skin color. It helps elongate your body making it seem like your legs go from the tip of your toe rather than your ankle.
Wearing nude shoes can help you feel more confident. It seems like you have average proportions rather than a Curvy Petite proportion.
You can wearing high heel pointed toe pumps to create visual longer line down your body. This also works with nude flats.
High Rise Jeans
You should choose high waisted jeans because they are more comfortable than low rise denim.
Second, they can make the wearer look taller and slimmer because of the way they accentuate curves.
Finally, high waistline jeans give women a waistline for all kinds of curvy petite body types.
You can also choose a mid rise jeans rather than high rise jeans instead if your torso is shorter and the high rise jeans come right under your bust.
Another great tip for curvy petite women to look longer and leaner, is wearing a monochrome outfit.
A lot of people choose black because that’s the most universally flattering. But, you can easily wear monochromatic clothes in other colors.
I really like wearing all white especially in this summertime. Wearing the same color pants and top can make your legs look longer.
Choose your favorite color and wear a monochromatic outfit. It doesn’t have to be an exact color match. In fact, it could be just a tones of the same color.
Off the Shoulder Tops
An an off the shoulder top is a great way to draw the eye up and make your neck look longer. Showing off your shoulders and your neck area make you look taller and slimmer.
It also adds interest to your outfit while still being flattering on most body types.
Belted Shirt Dress to Look Slim
Another great tip to help you look longer when you’re curvy is wearing a belt with a shirt dress. I love like the super fun stretchy dresses, but my shape gets lost in these straight dresses.
Wear Crop Tops
Even if you don’t want to show up your midsection crop top are great for curvy petite women. This is because they will make them look a little less petite and a lot more curvy.
If you have large breasts and not much waist, then this is the look for you. Crop tops will lengthen your torso while emphasizing those beautiful curves.
You can either wear the cropped tops with high waisted jeans or mid waisted jeans. This way they come together right in the middle with little to no skin being shown.
You can also tuck the cropped top into your knee length skirt or maxi skirt. With a crop top, you won’t have all of that fabric that’s normally below the crop in your flare jeans or your skirt.
My favorite crop tops are from Target. They’re super cute and only five dollars.
So, you can easily get them in every color! I’d start with white and black. That’s the easiest.
Wearing skirts or dresses with a long hemline will
Choose trousers with a straight cut that are neither too tight nor too loose-fitting as they will create the impression of height.
Consider using vertical prints and stripes as they can elongate your body and make it seem slimmer.
