You want to know the best thing about high waisted shorts? The fact that they give you about four inches of extra space for a full stomach. I love these white denim shorts from J. Crew! They have a zipper on the side and two pockets in the back. The denim shirt is a classic of mine and it is. so. dang. soft. I can’t remember where I got it, I think it may have been at Versona, but I love its fit. The great thing about this denim and white summer outfit is how versatile and easy to put together it is. It can be replicated with pieces you already have in your closet! Sub the white jean shorts, for white jeans, the denim for a blue button up or incorporate the denim on top look with a jean jacket! The neutral shoes really pull it all together too. They keep it day-to-day while still adding interest! I love a good wedge, especially since I’m 5’0 tall! These shoes give me some height and help my legs to look longer!
A Petite Fashion Tip: For all you petite girls out there, invest in a pair of high waisted shorts and wedges, it really helps add length to your legs. If you have a shorter torso swap the high-waisted shorts for some low rise to give your mid-section a little length!
It’s crazy the confidence dressing for your body type can give you! I know I’ve thought I looked terrible in something only to realize, it wasn’t me, it was the way the clothes fit on my body. Don’t get discouraged if a look you love doesn’t look good on you, because there are about a thousand (probably more) styles that would make you look stunning! Play around with styles! Sometimes it takes adding a belt, unbuttoning a button, rolling a sleeve, or a #playfulpony to make your look work with your body type!
Don’t always blame yourself first for why something doesn’t look good, most often its not you, it’s the clothes. (This also sounds like a solid reason to break up with your boyfriend- I mean not really though, because few things are more satisfying than slowly infiltrating your boyfriend’s taste (or lack thereof) with your style knowledge. Should I write a post on how to get your boyfriend to upgrade his style? I think yes now…. ) But seriously, stop telling yourself “I need to loose five pounds to pull this off” or “I’d look good in this if I had a smaller chest” Maybe you’d look good in that if it was made for your body! Maybe you could pull it off if it wasn’t made for a 5’10 size 0 model. Don’t get defeated, just reevaluate! Enjoy the process of learning what does and doesn’t work for your body. There’s beauty in some things not working out. It wouldn’t be any fun if every thing you wore looked exactly like it did on the model!
