Dior  - Petite

Whoever said you have to be tall to wear slim fits was so, so wrong! You just have to do it in proportion.

To lengthen your legs, go for trousers with small, high pockets and a high waist to lengthen your figure. High waists are really coming back in and they’re great for petites.

Add extra height by wearing thin high heels. Stilettos are very in this season so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t cheat a little.

Avoid wearing boots over trousers – they break up streamlined legs. Go for pumps, flats or ankle boots. Don’t wear long tops either; they’ll only shorten your legs. Depending on your size and shape, go for shorter, fitted tops.
