Dressing a petite frame can be tricky, since you have to carefully balance your proportions to avoid overwhelming your small frame. As a petite lady, you can still wear scarves, with a few simple style tricks in mind.
Here’s how petite ladies can style scarves:
Opt for small, subtle prints:
When it comes to petite dressing, you want to look for subtle, smaller prints on everything from your tops to your scarves. Keep your prints subtle, like a light check pattern or a small, floral print.
Go for oblong or infinity scarves:
The most flattering scarves on your frame will be oblong or rectangular shaped scarves or infinity scarves.To elongate your torso, try looping a long scarf once around your neck and let the ends hang down the front of your frame, adding length.
Wear a blanket scarf as a vest:
Blanket scarves are beyond cozy, but for a petite frame, can be a little overwhelming. Wrapping a blanket scarf around your neck is a sartorial go, but can visually stunt your height. Instead, allow the blanket scarf to drape around your shoulders and belt it to transform it into a vest.
With these tips in mind, you’ll be bundled up and ready for chilly fall days and blustery winter nights!
