New Year’s Style Resolutions for Petite Women

New Year’s Style Resolutions for Petite Women
December 18, 2017 Bomb Petite

From exercising more to eating better, it’s that time of year when talk turns to New Year’s resolutions. But instead of setting yourself an impossible (and unenjoyable) task, why not focus on your style. It will make you look and feel better but you won’t have to spend hours in the gym and we promise there won’t be a green juice in sight. Ring in 2018 with a fresh style agenda… These are our 8 petite style resolutions will make sure you look chic for the year ahead.

1. STOP BUYING NON-PETITE CLOTHING

You wouldn’t wear a pair of shoes that were too big, so why settle for clothes that don’t fit perfectly? In 2018 focus on buying clothes that are tailored to your height and shape and you’ll instantly notice how much better you look and feel.

2. INVEST IN KEY STATEMENT PETITE PIECES

We think the New Year is the perfect time to invest in pieces that really make a statement. Step outside your style comfort zone and buy something you wouldn’t usually consider. Think embellishments, details and maybe even feathers. Get ready for the compliments that jeans and a T-shirt never quite warrant.

3. STEP UP MY WORKWEAR

Dressing for the office shouldn’t be work – save that for when you’re actually at your desk. Invest in key pieces that you can throw on in the morning and look pulled together instantly. Having a ‘work uniform’ that you can pull out your wardrobe without thinking will save you time in the mornings and leave time for the more important stuff. (Like hitting snooze).

4. EMBRACE FABULOUS PRINTS

It can be tempting to choose block colours when you’re petite, especially as so much of the advice around dressing for smaller frames suggests block colours are the way forward. But striking prints shouldn’t be overlooked. Wear a printed skirt or top with other block colour basics. Prints are a great way to lift your mood, especially on gloomy winter mornings.

5. TRY LATEST SUITING TREND

Petite clothes that are properly tailored to your shape will add inches to your stature. Invest in some tailoring and suiting in the New Year and watch heads turn. Don’t just leave this trend for Monday to Friday. A beautifully cut blazer with a pair of jeans is a classic weekend look.

6. BE MORE SEXY

Embrace your femininity in 2018 and choose some petite clothes with a sexy edge. Petite dresses with an unexpected detail like an open back are a subtle but sexy way to show off your shape. Add a slick of red lipstick and you’ll be ready to go.
