Our guest blog this week is from Carol Li, a petite blogger from the UK, who scours retailers in the US and UK for flattering petite clothes.

Since petites come in all body shapes and dress sizes here are some style tips on how to dress for your petite figure:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pear Shape (Narrow shoulders, wide hips with a small waist)

 

The pear shape is the most common body shape in the UK. The key for dressing a pear shape is to keep the attention on the top half of your body, highlight your waist and ensure that your skirts and dresses skim your hips.

 

Here are some of the styles which would work well on petite pears:

 

Red petite dress

Carmen Petite Blue Blouse

Lara Petite Blue Ruffle Shirt

Sienna Petite Wrap Dress

 

Hourglass (Shoulders and hips are the same width with a defined waist)

 

If you’re lucky enough to have an hourglass figure, ensure that you highlight your waist. This can be done by wearing fitted tops and dresses which fit neatly on the waist. Don’t forget to make your belts your new best friend. Here are some great styles for the petite hourglass figure:

 

Blue petite dress

Keira Petite Blue Tailored Dress

Victoria Burgundy Petite Dress

Britney Petite Grey Shift Dress

 

Apple (Carries weight around the tummy area)

 

Hate your muffin top or can’t shift your mummy tummy? Look for styles which will skim the tummy area such as the items below:

 

Orange petite top

Eva Petite Orange Blouse

Carmen Petite Blue Blouse

 

Rectangle (No defined waist)

 

You can create a waist through the power of optical illusion dressing. Simply create a waist by opting for peplum styles and clothing with waist detailing such as the:

 

black petite tops

Chloe Petite Black Peplum Top

Davina Petite Teal Peplum Dress

Amanda Petite Olive Grey Shift Dress

 

Strawberry (Wide shoulders, narrow hips)

 

Strawberry body shapes need to wear clothes that take attention away from the shoulder area. This can be done through wearing tops with vertical lines, wearing darker colours on your top half or wearing trousers and skirts in a lighter colour. Here are some styles which would work well for petite strawberries. Read what colours to wear for petites for extra tips.
