We can’t leave you lovely ladies out of the fun!
The goal for a pocket rocket petite gal is to keep the eye moving and create flow.
You definitely don’t want to break up the body of a petite figure, or swamp it with heavy fabrics and silhouettes.
Petites can fall into our other four categories, but the ultimate goal is to add height, create curves and lengthen the look.
Generally these types are under 5 foot 4 inches, have broad shoulders and short legs.
She is a fabulous example of a perfect petite!
One colour top to toe is great, this engineers an unbroken line, thus an illusion of height.
Play with texture, but keep it all one colour.
The perfect shoe for a petite is a nude pump when wearing bare legs or when in coloured tights or pants, match your shoe.
This creates the unbroken line again.
Cropped jackets and tops give a sense of proportion and detailing under the bust works well too.
If you do want to experiment with a layered look, keep the fabric sheer so as not to add bulk.
Pair this look with a skinny leg jean to balance the shape.
Eva Longoria looks amazing in her shorts suit, perfect for petites.
Be very particular about hemlines ladies, this is crucial for the those of us on the shorter side.
Nothing says frumpy and dumpy more than a hemline that hits at the wrong part of your body.
If you want to wear a full length dress or skirt try one with a sexy split to draw the eye upward, this will lengthen the leg.
Ultimately the best length is mini or cocktail.
Make sure it hits just above or below the knee, at the slimmest part of the leg.
Keep hems of pants a little shorter as this adds length too. a slim pant that tapers at the ankle is an excellent choice.
Vertical patterns add length, these draw the eye up and down.
If you want to do a print, keep it on the smaller scale otherwise you risk spoiling your sweet shape.
Delicate jewellery is lovely to finish of a glamorous vibe, as does a handbag on the smaller, compact size.
We want to avoid a petite looking like she has been playing dress ups.
If you do want to wear bigger jewellery, say large hoop earrings, keep them made of fine wire.
Same for a stack of bangles, keep them thin.
If you are petite, hair that is too long will just shorten your look, aim for shoulder length or shorter.
As one stands taller, one looks taller and more confident!
Much like the dynamic Sabrina Batshon, one of the finalists on The Voice
