This new post is for all you petites out there! I do not have a universal definition for petite frames as it varies from country to country. For example, I’m 165cm tall and wear a UK Size 10 which is considered LARGE in my Asian world but small in the USA. So I’m not going to label you 🙂 You know it yourself: if you can or cannot pull off tall girl’s looks!

If you are petite

Here’s what you should consider when wearing this year’s wide leg/flare pants trend:

  • Vertical line elongates while horizontal or busy print widens.
  • Dark colour recedes while light colour advances .
  • Small print harmonises while large print overwhelms.
  • Monochromatic or 2-colour combo streamlines while colourful combo widens.

The red and black outfit combo will be a better choice for petite frames. But you can always change up the set by applying the above Style by Mel dressing principles.
