How to look a Treat when you’re Petite!

A friend of mine who is a maxi size was bemoaning how difficult it is for the larger woman to get clothes to look good in. I said to her that it was equally tricky to get clothes that suit you when you are petite too! By petite I mean diminutive in height- five feet four inches or less. It can be frustrating looking around and seeing something that looks good on the hanger or peg and then when you try it on and look in the mirror, it’s too “boxy” or simply just too long.
Here are some tips on what to look for when out shopping for dresses, some may be obvious, some not so!
Let’s talk length. Tour dress should be knee length or shorter: This is simply because despite being short you want your legs to look long and lean and the more leg that you shows, the taller you’ll appear. Dresses that have a hemline at your knee or slightly above are arguably the most flattering for petite types. The risk is that if you wear too short a skirt, depending on your appearance, shoes and make-up, you could end up looking like a little girl playing grown-ups!
If you want to go for below the knee dresses, then go for dresses that are a long long way beneath the knee. I am talking ankle length: go all the way to the floor. In the summer, a fresh bright n’ breezy cotton sundress that falls to the ankles can be matched with espadrille sandals or other heeled, casual footwear. In winter, a long darker coloured velvet dress can be matched with black or mauve leather or suede booties.
Do you like V-necks? Who doesn’t! They are good for all body types including petite ladies. It creates a vertical interest and draws the eye up and down. Plus it shows off your neck, and gives the impression of a long swan-like neck, even if that’s not the case.Halter styles can accomplish this without much of a problem.
What about stripes? Stripes or other top to bottom features that travel the length of your dress create a taller appearance drawing the viewer’s eye up and down. To create a figure-flattering smooth silhouette image, go for a wrap dress with a V neck.
You might be able to work out from the above what to avoid, but here we spell it out in a number of points:
-Dresses that hit the middle of your lower leg cut off the long look you’re trying to attain.
-Wide belts won’t work if they are in a contrasting colour to the rest of your dress. It will divide you into two halves and accentuate your lack of height.
-A dress should be a single colour to best flatter the petite frame. Petite women should avoid dresses that are one dramatic colour on top and a completely different colour on the bottom. Like the wide belt, this tends to cut the body in half.
– Horizontal stripes rarely work for women of any size or shapeexcept thin, tall, willowy runway model types. Petite women should avoid any variety of horizontal stripes. Side-to-side stripes draw the eye horizontally rather than vertically, which is not what you want.

Are you Going to Be Swept Aside by the Side Sweep?

While the season’s fashions come and go and rise and fall- is grey the new black for AW14? Men traditionally don’t much about too much with their hair, especially if they have a recognisable “look”. Obviously this is a tough trick for the folically challenged(those who are balding) where the three choices are basically a Homer Simpson comb-over (no, no, and thrice no!), a syrup (syrup of fig=wig… a hairpiece) like “Rugs” William Shatner sported in the 1980s, or a Brice Willis shaved head look.
For those blessed with a thatch up top, there is a new hot hairstyle that seems to be sweeping all before it. In fact I must correct myself there. This is not a new hairstyle- it is at least six decades old! It is a simple style, and pretty easy to keep going once you’ve done the initial cut. But are we on the same page- do you know what a side sweep is?
One of the most classic hairstyles for men is the Side Swept. This hairstyle is a simple side part with the hair lying flat and possibly slicked with cream or gel. Once the preserve of ultra-conservative politicians, it is now being favoured by Hollywood actors, celebs, and wannabees (like me!)
The side swept was at its peak in the 1930s to 1950s, yet there is still a minor but solid group of men who enforce the side sweeping of their hair as a “must do” in their daily grooming. In a way it is similar to the slicked back look, but the parting makes it quite different. The hair is parted and combed perpendicular to the parted line while in the slick back, the hair is slicked backwards starting at the forehead.
Classic side parting looks can be found in Robert Redford’s portrayal of the Great Gatsby in the 1973 film. More recently you have trendsetter David Beckham sporting his side sweep now he no longer has to head the ball on the pitch. What really started the recent trend was MadMen, the superb series about advertising in New York in the 1960s and 1970s. It’s the main man, Donald Draper with the look we all want to emulate.
Now here’s my own tip for getting the great side sweep look; let the top of your hair grow for three weeks at least. Then go to a hair stylist and ask for a distressed side sweep- you don’t want it to be too clean cut. Ask your hair stylist to think Leonardo Dicaprio or Ryan Gosling in a bit of a breeze on board a yacht.
The bad news is that if you’re not careful you will be compared to the Prime Minister, David Cameron. This can be avoided by not wearing a blue suit, and going instead for a tee and skinny jeans with trainers. The final tip. Don’t forget to run your hands through your side sweep every now and then (when people are looking at you). It’s a show-offy style and you should draw attention to yourself as often as possible!
Now let your hair grow and sweep the opposition of its feet!
