Even though the queen of fashion Anna Wintour would never approve an all black outfit, I do think that as the days get shorter and colder we all feel like sticking to this color a bit more.
As a petite person I have always been concerned whether I would be able to look nice if I wear an all black outfit. As black has this great quality to make everything look smaller, that’s not really great for a short person.
So here are three tips that might help you petite ladies pull off the color like a boss.
- Combine different textures: in that way you can create a visible contrast in the outfit and you will still be able to stick to one color. For example, leather has a more edgy vibe, whereas sude is more subtle and feminine.
- To avoid looking too dark, add accessories in a different color: A delicate gold chain or a pretty scarf? All these small details can help you make your outfit outstanding.
- Aim to surprise: Every outfit should have a surprising element. A sexy piece of lace showing under the leather jacket? Or a nice pair of tights (you know I’m obsessed with tights) that make your dress/skirt look even more elegant? Up to you! 🙂
