Winter Coat For Petite Gal

Published

on

Being petite in the world of the tall and giants are not easy. Clothes are not designed to be worn by us, petite girls. The length of the pants are too long, the shirts are too baggy, jackets are too big. Should we always shop in the kids’ department then? It’s not funny for a 20 something or 30 something to wear sequins with a little mermaid as decoration. Well, with winter is coming, choosing coats is a nightmare as well. But don’t worry, there are 4 ways for us to shop for winter coat as a petite girl.

Choose Bright And Neutral Colors

The petite winter coat in various colors is great for ladies with a petite frame. Wearing monochromatic look or a single color from head to toe will add the most height. Meaning, coats in neutral basic colors, such as black, brown, cream, navy, grey or white go perfectly with similar shades of pants, skirts, hosiery, and shoes to create a longer silhouette.

Sleek and Simple Cut Is Da Best

Not only that well-fitted staples are best for petite ladies, sleek and simple cuts are also the most flattering for the figure. Try cropped style jackets that rest on the waistline, or pick a tapered jacket or coat with narrow lapels to give a longer line.

Short Hemline

Coats with short hemline are great for petites. A knee-length or shorter will be the most flattering silhouette, while anything longer can (sometimes) overwhelm your frame. When it comes to sleeve hemline, make sure the sleeves hit at an appropriate length. The tops of the sleeves should sit perfectly at the bony tops of shoulders and make sure the seams hit exactly at the wrist.

Highlight The Waist

Any coat with a decorative belt or other feature that highlights the waist will lend to a sleek and streamlined silhouette. Look for styles that fit close to the body instead of flaring out—these will keep you looking your tallest.

Tiny Sunglasses

Many people weren’t a fan of tiny sunglasses, including me. Which is why, when tiny sunglasses are pronounced dead in the fashion, many are happy. Especially to know that what replaces them are oversized, retro shapes sunglasses. Yes, the 70s sunglasses are back in the market y’all.

How To Make A Statement With Your Appearance

Published

on

There is nothing more important than being comfortable. But sometimes, that comfort must be replaced with something more prominent if the occasion required. By playing dress up, I don’t mean that you have to wait for a black-tie event to wear your favorite dress. There are ways to look standout without actually putting on a formal dress for a formal event. Even when you leave for work or having a girls’ night out, you can still look dress up. Below are the five outfits you can try that will make you instantly feel fabulous.

The Matching Two Piece

If you work in a place that rather has quite a strict formal dress code, or simply going to a lunch business, then this matching two pieces is perfect. It can be your regular suit, your regular skirt-blazer options, or simply two pieces of clothing that have a similar color thrown together.

Dress Up With Sequin

Embrace your inner goddess and dress yourself up with sequins. There are two options you can take. First, you can go all the way with sequins by wearing a full-length dress. Or second, you can dress it down by pairing the skirt or dress with a loose, casual sweater or even white tee. Pair the look with flat shoes or strappy high heels for a more formal occasion.

Red Lip

There is a way to cheat and continue to look polished even when you left your arsenals at home. That is the so-called red lipstick. A slick of a bold, red lippy is the perfect way to dress up without overdoing it. This especially will work out well if you are not sure what kind of event you are going to go and you are afraid of making an outfit mistake.

Thigh High Boots

These type of boots are part sexy and part cool. Pair them with a mini dress or a mini skirt for a sexier look. Yes, sometimes a slight show of skin is much sexier than a whole lot. The down thing about this outfit is you can only wear them when the weather is permissible to wear rather a short bottom. But even if the weather is slightly chilly, I’d say this ensemble is worth it.

One Color Plan

No, I’m not talking about a pair of suit. I’m simply talking about a top and a bottom that are fortunately having the same color. The great thing about same-color outfits are despite the type of the top and the bottom, you will always look intentionally put-together.

The Velvet Dress

The velvet dress is very popular back in the 90s. There is a reason why it was popular and continue is until now. A velvet dress is timeless. This type of dress might not something you can wear every day. But, having this dress in your wardrobe is like having an arsenal that you can bring out anytime you need to glam up your appearance.

The Modest Dress

Being sexy might be your thing. But there are times we cannot dress as we want and instead, we have to wear something that covers more of our skin. A modest dress is the type of dress perfect to be worn to a family occasion where your grandma might present. Imagine wearing a plunging neckline to a family barbecue night. That might give your grandparents a heart attack.

The Linen Dress

Summer is about to come. It is time to invest in summer dresses. A linen dress is a perfect piece to be added to your summer collection. The lightweight material is breezy enough to encounter the summer heat. Wear it with strappy sandals, sunglasses, and a wicker bag for an effortlessly cool look.

The Romantic Cream Dress

Everyone always says that a little black dress is a must-have item in every girl’s closet. The thing with an LBD is, you can’t wear them for a day event. It will look too formal and weird. This is where the romantic cream dress comes in handy. It is like the equivalent for an LBD for the day occasions. It is versatile, monochrome, and timeless. Pair it with boots for cooler weather and nude strappy sandals for summer.

The Blazer Dress

This one is rather risky as people might think you accidentally left your apartment without your trousers. But, this dress is a timeless one. You can look cool and sexy, yet still formal enough for business. I call this one a sexy business. Wear the dress with flats for the day and pointed pumps for evening.
