8 Petite Girl Wardrobe Essentials

Are you under 5 ft 4? Ever wonder what your wardrobe could be missing and should probably have? Then this post is for you! I have compiled a list of 8 wardrobe essentials every petite girl needs in her life!

Nude Pumps/Wedges

Petite girls always need those extra inches! A nude pair of heels provides you more than just some! The nude color adds length to your legs by providing a continuous line between the shoe and your legs. Making your legs look longer!

Skinny Jeans

I personally love skinny jeans. But I like them even better for the simple reason that they make me look taller! When a pair of skinny jeans sits on my waist or even just below, because they are fitting, they make my legs appear slender and longer!

Sheath Dress

Now I am not saying that other dress styles are bad, but if you want your petite frame to appear longer than it is then this style dress does the trick! Since the fabric clings to your body it creates an up down line making you look taller.

Shorts

This one is a no brainer, want to make your legs look long then wear a cute pair of shorts. Pick a dressy pair of a night out. Want to add even more inches, pair it with a pair of heels!

Accentuating Accessory

Accentuating your waist elongates your legs. Always wear an accessory around your waist so as to define it. A belt or a scarf are perfect for this!

Pencil Skirt (just above knee)

The pencil skirt, a great piece to own for work and play! The best part is that this skirt is perfect for us petite girls. It’s fitting which is always good, it elongates our legs and it looks classy! We should pick a pencil skirt that ends at the knee or slightly above, this also helps with the elongation effect.

Well Fitted Blazer

Another great wardrobe staple for work. The key to buying a good blazer for your petite frame is to make sure its fitted and not too long. It should end right below the natural waist. I love to roll up my sleeves as it makes me feel like the blazer isn’t drowning me, but that’s my comfort. So go buy a great blazer today!

Vertical Striped Items

Vertical stripes also provide the beautiful clean up down line that helps provide the illusion of height. Any piece of clothing with vertical stripes is a ok! On the same note, try avoiding horizontal stripes as this could make you look shorter!

    Thank you for this list! I do not own ANY nude colored shoes – and I am 4’11” – so I am buying a heeled pair and flat pair TODAY. These were all great ideas because I am always trying to look/appear taller.

    Love that orange and pink look! You look so great in bold colors. Even though I’m not petite, I love wearing nude heels to elongate my legs. I have a pair coming in the mail right now!

    These are good tips! Although I can’t wear heels much with two toddlers I do like my skinny jeans and blazers! I’m looking forward to wearing them more as the weather cools off 🙂

    Hope you are having a great start to the week 🙂
