Petite outfit

The check shirt

October 19, 2015

This article, I could also have called it “How to wear a flare jeans when you are a petite woman”?

I lived a long story with flare jeans. I only wore this kind of pants when I was a teenager, with flat sneakers. As a Petite, it was really bad for my height. For my first day in high school, I wore a black flares with a dragon print on the left leg. I just couldn’t believe how I could wear this! A youthful error, for sure!

The flare jeans is not a design that fit to Petites. But I will explain you later how to wear it without looking too small. I think it is important to wear what we like, even if it’s not the perfect item for our morphology. “There is no issue, there are only solutions”, said the French novelist André Gide. This flares come from Asos Petite and I wear it delibarately long. I could have altered it for 2 centimeters or worn higher heels but I like when it’s long and it ends torn (it gives a style). Of course, you have to be careful not to be hampered while walking.

For this outfit, I wanted to wear red, one of this Fall/Winter 2016 color. So, I chose a red check print shirt from Zara kids with a matching red bag coming from Mango.

The earrings are part of Azucar Bijoux new collection (I have already talked about this brand here). I had a crush on these earrings because of its rough and natural style and the feminity of the stone with its pearly reflections. I invite you to better discover this pyrite collection. I am impressed by the designer Cinthya’s work. She receives the stone by the supplier in a big piece and she manually crushes it into smaller pieces. It is surprising how she succeeds in creating unique and harmonious jewellry with heterogeneous little pieces of stone.

Have a nice day, Xxx. And don’t forget the giveaway to win a set of three glitter pairs of socks here and the daily vote to the Golden Blog Awards here.

Fashion advice for Petite

As mentioned above, flares don’t fit to petites. To avoid looking to small with this kind of pants, it is better to choose a high waist one. Then, we pair it with a shirt (buttons bring verticality), preferably with checks or vertical stripes print and we add an open blazer or cardigan. For the final touch, wear high heels to lenghten the legs.
