Petite Style Tip - How to make your legs look longer

Wear a high waisted skirt or high waisted trouser.

High waisted skirts & trousers will instantly make your legs look longer. Who doesn’t want longer legs?

If you’re looking to hide/flatten the tummy area, look for high waisted bottoms without any detail on the tummy area. i.e. Avoid buttons, pockets etc.

Below is a selection of my favourite high waisted bottoms from ASOS:

    Hi Carol, just followed you over here from your comments on blogformatting. I am also petite, I am 5′ 1″ 128 lb I can’t remember what that is in stones anymore. I am a 34D but large feet for my size I take a UK 5 1/2. Although I don’t live in the UK anymore I will definitely follow along. We petite women have to stick together. LOL
