How to avoid looking frumpy in NON-petite clothing

As much as quite a few brands are getting with the program and catering to us petites, we can’t always have closets exclusively full of clothing to fit us based on our height. Here are a few things to consider when your outfit doesn’t fit your petite frame as well as you’d like:

1. Tuck in – if the occasion, top style and length will allow it, tucking in your top will pull in a larger-than-you-would prefer top

2. Avoid layering – shorter ladies can look like they’re drowning in wearing too many clothes at a time

3. Top it off with some spandex – the word alone may make some people cringe but paired with loose fitting culottes, trousers or skirts, a spandex top will tuck everything in nicely in at least one section of your outfit

4. Belts – yes, they’ll stop a pair of loose fitting jeans or trousers from slipping but you can also use a belt to cinch in slightly baggy outfits at the waist. Again, this adds some structure

5. Pointed toe shoes – whether heels or flats, they’ll help to pull your look together so that no matter how loose fitting your clothes are!
