God only lets things grow until they’re perfect. Some of us didn’t take as long as others.

Being short is not a bane, but there are some tips for short girls to make it a boon

1. Wear High Waist Bottoms

High-waist pants, jeans, skirts or shorts creates the illusion of longer legs which makes you look taller. Balance is the key so pair high waist bottom with well fitted crop top or by tucking in a tailored blouse.

3. Wear V-Neck

Where round and boat necks are a big no, V-Neck makes neck appear longer and leaner.

4. Wear Monochrome Outfit

Wearing monochrome or same color outfit creates a virtual vertical line to your posture and thus causes the illusion of height. We all love color blocking but for you a single color dress from head to toe is best as it creates an illusion of some extra height.

5. Wear Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes make anyone look taller as well as slimmer. Thin vertical stripes is even better. And the best part is stripes never go out of trend.

6. Wear color blends

Match your heels with your pants or jeans, this way your legs will appear longer. Matched color scheme creates the illusion of longer lines. So if you are wearing black jeans or pants match it with black heels or wedges. Tan, brown and nude also go well with skin tone so you can try that too.

7. Carry small or medium size bags

Oversized bags is not a great look for short girls because it will make you appear even shorter. Small-sized cross-body bags and medium size bags can work well with your look. So ditch those tote or duffle bag and go for sling or medium size bags.

8. Keep hair short or go for top knot

Short to medium length hairstyle is best for you as it will help highlighting your neck but if you have long hair try top knot, bumpy hairstyles or high pony as it will create an illusion of being tall.

9. Wear thin chic belts

Huge broad belts are a big NO! As it will cut your body in half and will make you look shorter. Wear thin chic belt as it will help define your waist well.

10. Avoid Chunky accessories

Try long hanging accessories instead of heavy accessories around the neck because in general petite people don’t have long neck and that will make you look short.
