How to Dress If You’re a Short Woman. Get a leg up on the competition with these
wardrobe tips. You will need Petite and vintage clothes Visually
interesting tops Small prints Wide-leg pants Empire or V-neck wrap dresses and backless
shoes and high heels. Step 1. Head to the petite department, where clothing
is tailored for women 5-foot-4 and under, regardless of their weight. Or shop in vintage stores; clothing from the
’40s and ’50s was often tailor-made for shorter woman. Step 2. Dress all in one color; it will make you look
taller. Step 3. Wear tops that draw attention up and away
from your legs: V-necks, halters, small shoulder pads, and necklines with beading or trim. Avoid tops that end at your hip bone; they
can make legs look stubby. Never wear a pattern or print that is bigger
than your fist. Step 4. Wear wide-leg trousers to elongate your frame. Pair heels with them, with the pants hem reaching
almost to the bottom of your shoe. Avoid cropped pants, which make short legs
look even shorter. Step 5. Choose dresses over skirts to create an unbroken
vertical line. Flattering styles include Empire dresses and
V-neck wrap dresses with a high waist; both lengthen your bottom half. Dresses should end either slightly above the
knee or be ankle-length; anything in between will cut your silhouette in half. Step 6. Wear backless footwear with dresses; they
create one long, unbroken leg line. Avoid shoes with ankle straps for the opposite
reason; they’ll cut you off just where you need the illusion of length. And remember: Platform heels are your best
friend. Did you know Fifty-four percent of American
women are 5-foot-4 or under.

  1. If you have been trying to burn up fat quickly, you should look up on google Ultra Slimming Formula. You are bound to get the body you deserve.

  2. I'm 4' 10 1/2. I have a short neck, BIG BOOBS (a small d cup) a big butt and a belly too… if I wasn't overweight I would have more or less an hourglass figure…

  3. I am 5 ft 2, and body shape straight. waist size 4-6. and weigh 6 1/2 stone I never wear dresses or skirts, and can never find outfits to fit my size. I love jeans, and being warm. It seems all outfits ideas for us short people are cold all season. I haven't found any helpful hints for wearing leggings or dress tips for cold days..

  4. Come on everyone – why are you complaining??? There is nothing wrong with being short! It's not going to hinder you in life in any way so just embrace it. I'm 35 & 5ft 1. The best thing about being petite is that you look so much younger than your taller counterparts. I always get mistaken for a 20 year old. When you get to my age – you'll thank your genes for being short 🙂 No one wants to be in their 30's & look 10 years older! So just work what you have & be proud of it 🙂

  5. I'd like to learn how to attract women. My cousin has started going out with a stunning lady as 8 weeks ago he signed up to an internet site named Master Attraction (Google it if you want to learn how.) I'm envious because I wish to fall madly in love as well. I'm going to take a look at this Jake Ayres guy's material. Bizarre thing is, he previously had Zero luck with women. How could you transform so quickly? His girl's like a model.

  6. If you look at those pictures from 1930s you would see women covered from neck to ankle. But then little by little their dress became shorter from top to bottom and in some places completely Naked!
    Quran 20:121
    They ate from the tree, whereupon their Nakedness became evident to them, and they tried to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise. Adam thus disobeyed his Lord, and fell.
    It seems like satan has done it again and we are just following him!
    May God save us from satanic people!

  7. You already know that aggravating point when your good friend (who's been a loser for a long time) gets an unbelievable girl to fall in love with him in like 2 weeks? God, that occured. I'm aware I should be happy even so I want it to be me. He revealed that he applied the the Cupid Love System (Search for it in Google). I wanna hide out inside of a cave at present.

  8. …But it can be kind of sad when you're 16 and get mistaken for a 12 year old. People sometimes think my friends are my older siblings!

  9. Very simple dress and has short decorates, compared to ever-pretty's dress, I THINK IT IS inferior to ever-pretty's design, [email protected]##%$#$%, sorry to say that.
    but i have to say that your idea is good.

  10. I'm 23, 4'11. I wear wedges and mini everything because as an adult, I can. But im still mistaken as a high schooler, lol.

  11. @Veronica Boyer I'm the shortest of my classes too maybe I'm the shortest of my elective classes. 

  12. I've been told by my friend that 5'4'' ( which I am ) is tall not petite. It annoys me that she says this too. But thank you how cast.

  13. why is it that if more than half of American women are 5'4" and under that is labeled "short"? It's like we'll if it's more than 50% wouldn't that itself be average

  14. I am 5'1 at 19 years old, thanks for the tips! Btw I am in love with the dresses at 0:40 , 1:12 , and 1:24! 😍😍

  15. Petite sections aren't tailored to short people "no matter their weight." If you are 5 feet tall and 110lbs, and shopping for jeans, you are better off finding jeans in the junior section, even though they'll be too long.

  16. My mother was 5'2", I am 6'2". People always asked my mom, "Did those kids come from you? They are so much bigger than you." Then my dad would step around the corner, "Oh I see now!" Dad was a big man at 6'1" tall and over 200lbs.

  17. can we get models that represent average height on clothing websites so we actually know what the clothes will look like on us…… the weight issue is being addressed…but what about height too?

  18. Love this video I'm 5ft 1
    And have to say all these tips work I wear a lot of one colour outfits & mix similar colours together I also like long coats or cardigans & I wear a lot of dresses skirts with side slits which means my over knee boots look chic too & classy I'm 45 aging gracefully I intend to keep my long blonde hair I'm sure I'm in perimenopause too lol but really this is the best time of my life & finding this video has helped my wardrobe ty 💕

  19. Hello Petite Women community!
    I recently wrote a book that's full of tips for Petite who want to dress well. It's a project I started since, as a Petite, I was often dressed in a way that was unflattering. I am running right now a promotion, where the e-book is free, from Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 12:00 AM PDT to Saturday, August 10, 2019, 11:59 PM PDT.
