Not all women are gifted with height. Most Asians are around 5 feet tall, but that's not a bad thing! Since proportion is key when it comes to styling, here are a few tips on how to play-up your petiteness and not overwhelm your frame.

Avoid Oversized Bags

If you don't need to carry a lot of things, it's best to stay away from huge bags. Oversized bags tend to overwhelm short women. Instead, choose small to medium sized purses for it to be proportionate to your frame.

Add Slim Belts

Opt to wear slim belts as much as possible! Wide or contrasting belts cut the figure in half and break up the vertical illusion that petite women want to achieve.

Choose Pieces with Vertical Lines

Since lines and stripes are still in, use them to your advantage. Vertical lines draw the eye up and down rather than side to side, making you look leaner and longer. The vertical lines don't necessarily have to be in print--panels, seams, and other details that appear vertical will also do the trick. 

Wear Heels

If all else fails, wear heels. Wearing heels is the easiest way to add height. For petite frames, it's best to wear pumps and sling-backs because ankle straps cuts the vertical line of your legs, making your legs appear shorter.

Clozetter iamaly definitely knows how to style her classic converse sneakers. There's a reason why sneakers have always been a mainstay because they come in various colours, shapes, and sizes and are extremely comfortable. Pair these with a shorts and shirt ensemble or bring a touch of cool, casual vibe to your dressed up dresses for extended comfort.

Following the normcore trend last year is the sprouting of the "mandals" or man-sandals. Clozette Ambassador christyfrisbee uses her mandals as a contrast to this monochrome feminine outfit. The mandals are simplistic and super comfortable sandals that add a little bit of boyish statement to any look.

Boots are definitely made for walking and Clozette ambassador GelaMunoz uses hers in an OOTD for her music festival look. Depending on the style, boots can exude either a boho, fierce, or military-inspired look.

Let's be honest, it's hard to shop in heels and the last thing you want to happen while shopping is for your feet to hurt. For Clozette Ambassador stephiielim, the best shoes for shopping are these cute patterned slip-ons.
