The Best Skirts to Suit Petites
Struggling to find the perfect skirt? When it comes to Petites, the most flattering skirts are those that create a long, lean silhouette. The secret is - there are a number of ways to achieve this miracle. Curious how? Here are our top tips:
Opt for Asymmetrical Shapes
Asymmetrical hems or shapes are an easy way to make skirts interesting for Petite women without adding ruffles or tiers, which can add bulk to the body, and therefore be less flattering.
Search for Slits
Midi skirts can be intimidating to wear as a Petite - the length hits mid-calf, which could make your legs look stunted. At the same time, midi is one of the coolest, most versatile lengths, which transitions from formal to casual wear. Looking to wear midi as a Petite? Look for slits. A side slit, in particular, is super flattering for Petites. Showing some skin makes your legs seem longer and leaner, whilst the slit stops you from looking like you're drowning in fabric.
Don't Shy Away from Minis
Stick to Slim Silhouettes
Needless to say, a skirt designed especially for Petites will give you a much better fit than one designed for Regular heights. Is it just shorter? In short, no. A Petite skirt will have been especially designed to account for the proportions of a Petite body, with all dimensions adjusted. From shorter hems, to adjusted waists, to overall more comfortable fits. Petite clothes even have smaller pockets to look better on you... So when looking for a perfect skirt, look for Petite.
