Are you a Petite?

Kourtney Kardashian , Eva Longoria and Kristin Kreuk

What are their similarities ? PETITE.

You guess it right!

Kourtney , Eva and Kristin are considered PETITE ladies.

According to my research at Wikipedia , average height of Malaysian men is 1.65cm (5ft 5″) and the women at 1.53 (5ft 1/2″).

So if you are a women below than 160cm (5ft 3″ or less) , you are under the category of Petite (so do I !)

But never get discouraged by being a small size here. You could be an XS or S – we do have some techniques to camouflage!

Again, what’s your GOAL ? To look tall and slim, perhaps? I know !!

Cut short, let’s have some look at these techniques, that we wish to share with you.

1ST TECHNIQUE : MONOCHROMATIC

To those new to this term, monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue, and extended using its shades (black), tones (grey or black & white) and tints (white) – dalam erti kata Bahasa Melayu nya, warna monokromatik terhasil dari satu warna asli, kemudian dicampur dengan warna lain seperti hitam, kelabu dan putih – menjadi satu variasi yang lebih harmoni hanya dengan menggunakan satu warna asli tadi!

Interesting right?

Monochromatic techniques is one thing that will make people visually look you from top to toe ,vertically from the length, the height, if you go in one color.

If you wear different blocks of color – you have a horizontal top, you have different colored pants, you have different colored shoes – it’s too much to look at in too small a space. It will visually “chop you up” because there’s too much to look at horizontally.

SO DON’T DO THIS!

2nd TECHNIQUE : VERTICAL STRIPES

I guess this is the most popular techniques among all

NEVER DO HORIZONTAL , IF YOUR GOAL IS TO LOOK TALLER & SLIMMER !

3rd TECHNIQUE : OPTICAL ILLUSION DRESS

Anything that follows the same color from top to bottom or falls in monochromatic, it would be a great tricks to look taller!

4th TECHNIQUE : SHOES OH SHOES!

YES, it’s your SHOES, darling!

As for petite, try avoid wearing flats (if possible!)

The best shoe style for short women is a sleek high heel with a pointed toe. A sleek pump qualifies as the best shoe style for short women because it gives the petite woman the appearance of a longer, slimmer leg, and whenever a short woman can dress to make her legs look longer, she looks leaner and taller.
