When you have a petite frame, one of the most challenging things you’ll encounter fashion-wise is finding the perfect shoes. You may want shoes that will make your legs look especially long and slender, or you could be looking for flats that won’t make your slacks appear too long. Keep these petite fashion tips in mind the next time you go shopping to ensure that your shoes are the perfect finishing touch to your outfit.
Wedge heels with string embellishments are great for outfits like sundresses and shorts. You can find wedges that tie at or just above the ankle to make your legs look longer. If you choose wedge heels in a nude shade that matches your skin tone, you can elongate your legs even more.
Wedge heels in a bright color can be the perfect accent to a monochromatic outfit while giving you a little more height. You can wear these with dress shorts, skinny jeans or wide-legs pants. Remember these petite fashion tips when you’re looking for something that is appropriate for work or casual outings, so you can use them to dress up or dress down an outfit.
When you want to wear flats, gladiator-style sandals that aren’t too high on the legs are a great choice. These will work well with virtually all of your casual summer outfits, and it’s best to purchase these in a neutral shade that will go with all of your clothing. Sandals with a slight heel are also ideal to make your legs a little longer while still giving you the comfort you want.
If you want a little more texture on your sandals, you can go with a tie-up sandal with a low heel, but only if you’re wearing a mullet dress or want to make a simple outfit like a t-shirt and cut-off shirts more interesting. The shoes should be the focal point of your outfit, since wearing too many patterns or accessories could make you look smaller.
