PETITE FASHION WINTER GUIDE BELLA PETITE MAGAZINE: Daily Shopper GUIDE Petite Fashion For Petite and Plus Size Petite Women  

Bella Petite Personal Wardrobe Stylist Tamy Lugo has news for you! Cold fronts are approaching and blizzards are brewing in the skies. When the winter chill makes its grand entrance. What are we petite women to do?

Before you go rummaging through your storage, take into consideration the following 5 tips for dressing warm yet up-to-date.

1. Avoid the long squared shaped jackets/coats. These types of jackets are in fact unflattering to your figure, at the same time creating a boxy shortened image. Notice, that large buttons will also have this effect on a petite frame. Opt for cuts that taper in around your waistline but do not pass the knees.

The measurement was taken from a size extra small.  Model shown in picture wearing an extra small.

2. Don’t wear chunky on chunky.

Meaning, a chunky knit sweater with matching jogging pants. Once a popular trend for moms, my advice is to keep it indoors. Times have changed and channeling the Michelin tire guy is passé.

3. Beware of large cable knits too.

Practice caution in combining a large cable knit top with your bottom. Although they tend to look cozy, they add bulk to the body as well as shorten height if you ignore proportion. The length of the cable knit top should remain at or above your natural waist. Pairing with a lightweight fabric on bottom equals the right constituent for a petite.

4. Try not to get hunted down by poachers when wearing an oversize fur/faux fur.

Please make sure whichever you choose doesn’t go overkill. A more subtle fur vest or a sweater with fur couplings ensure we are still stylishly correct in the petite department.

5. Skip on rocking all trends at one time.

What you can flaunt are accessories, accompanied by basic pieces. Necklaces and scarves are a great way to draw the eyes upwards, while elongating the upper body. Go another direction by letting your boots be the center of attention. Boots and shoes in a hot color, a fun pattern, even texture will attract focus on the lowest part so that your stature is not the center of one’s attention.

We’ve already established that being a petite is not an obstacle for being fashionable, but something we do have to work with. Winter does not have to be a drag, let alone cause us to look frumpy. However, winter is a great time to revamp ourselves by not going into style hibernation. Written by: Tamy Lugo Vstylist!
