How should petite girls wear skirts?

For petite girls, size can be a real concern when it comes to choosing an appropriate skirt length.
There are many pros and cons when it comes to this topic. Of course, in my opinion, you should follow basic rules and fashion tricks while listening to your needs and preferences.

Some rules state that there are few types of skirts that petite girls should avoid. Well, rules have to be broken, right? If you combine the rest of your outfit well and manage to accentuate the rest of your figure, there is no need to worry.

If you like skirts and you are not sure how to wear them or you are worried that you don’t look good, this post is for you. You’ll see how to style skirts of different materials and lengths. Let’s see what I have prepared, shall we?

Choose the right length

This is perhaps the most important rule to follow. It is very important to know that different lengths can make your legs look shorter and blunter. That is why you need to choose the right length of your skirts.
No matter what kind of skirt it is, midi, pencil or short, you should know which length suits you best. Slip on several of these before deciding which skirt length you’re most comfortable with.

midi skirt

According to some fashion gurus, the midi skirt is tall for petite girls, no. But like I said in the beginning, there are some rules here that need to be broken.
So if you want to wear a midi skirt, go for it. The most important thing is to pay attention to your waist, not your legs. So wear high-waisted skirts and there will be no problems.
Also, you should always choose A-line skirts as they are the most flattering to the body.

maxi skirt

Another rule that turned out to be dead wrong is “petite girls shouldn’t wear maxi skirts.”
The main rule here is to choose the skirt that follows the shape of your body. One that flows well down the line of the legs. It’s important to choose a length that doesn’t interfere with your walking.
When it comes to upper body clothing, you should definitely avoid a lot of fabric and tuck your t-shirt into your skirt.

Short skirt

If you’re thinking, oh, that’s too short for me, don’t worry. The fact is that if you are small you will have to go very short. Mini skirts like this one make your legs appear long. That’s a good thing, isn’t it?
You can make your legs look even longer by pairing this skirt with high heeled platform sandals with ankle straps. Be careful, don’t go over the line.
Since you’re wearing a very short skirt, you should also be careful not to show too much skin. Either way, keep it classy.

pencil skirt

The pencil skirt is an essential piece of clothing and no matter what, every woman should have at least one in her closet. At least in my opinion. You can wear it as a casual and elegant outfit on so many occasions.
The most flattering length of pencil skirts is somewhere around the knee. If knee length seems too conservative to you, a mini skirt version of the pencil skirt might be good for your body shape and height.

proportions of your body

When you go shopping, you should always listen to yourself and be aware of your body. This way you can easily choose a skirt that you can wear frequently.
Instead of confusing the different materials and patterns, try to stick to one or two basic colors.
Structured skirts and blazers are must-haves, and anything with a high waist will be a winner.

As you can see, the high waist of this short skirt makes your legs appear so much longer.
In order to rock this look, it is important to know how to style high-waisted clothing. In any case, it’s better to put on whatever shirt or sweater you’re wearing than to leave it hanging.
In the photo above you can see the elegant combination of a blue tweed skirt and a flowery green-blue blouse. As you can see, the eyes naturally fall on the bow around her neck. So add such a detail when creating an outfit.

Despite your height, it’s always a good idea to wear a wrap skirt.
These skirts make your legs look longer. I decided to present you this model with the ruffle details.

You can try wearing wrap skirts in bright colors just like the photo above.

Split skirt

If you want to show off more of your legs, a slit skirt can help. While not overly provocative, they show just enough to draw some attention your way.
Regardless of whether the slit is short or long, your legs will appear longer and you will remain elegant and chic.

Choose the right shoes

Last but not least, the shoe options. To keep up, you need to choose the right shoes.

Petite fashion girls say you should wear pointed toes or boots when wearing a mini skirt. Did you know that ankle boots go very well with A-line mini skirts?

Midi skirts match heels with an ankle strap. As long as the strap is thin, delicate, and in neutral colors like beige or black, you’re fine. Try to stay away from those clunky shoes.
