5 Wardrobe Pieces Not Made for Short People

As someone who is vertically challenged, I know my fashion limitations.  “Short people problems” extend beyond not being able to reach something on the top shelf.  Here are five common fashion items that a tall person can pull off better than a short person.

Long Coats:  I once bought a long black leather jacket.  It seemed like a great investment at the time, until I later realized that every time I wore it I looked like I was being swallowed up by a coat!

Maxi Dress: If you’re short and going to buy maxi dresses, just make sure you have your seamstress on speed dial because there are most likely no high heels high enough to make the dress not drag on the ground when you walk!

Romper/Jumpsuit: The full pant jumpsuits are worse than the short rompers because short people have to deal with a waist that bunches due to excess material as well as the pants part of it that drags on the floor.

Thigh High Boots:  This one make me a little sad.  Thigh high boots may not look as good on a short person because they swallow up too much of our legs, but there are some things that I can’t give up!  This is one of them!

Wild Patterns: I’ve never been a huge fan of crazy patterns, but the odd time I’ll find a patterned dress that stands out!  Unfortunately, patterns can make a short person seem even shorter.  It’s best to stick to solid colors as a rule, but again, there’s exceptions to this rule of thumb!

Love,

For jeans, I fell in love with these ultra flare jeans from Free People. The wash is pleasantly simple without any fading, detailing, or rips.  It lets people focus on the flare without any competing distractions.

While people are bringing out the simple black booties for Fall, on my list there’s a pair of booties that turn it up a notch.

Last but not least, every season’s wardrobe needs a pink dress.  This modest dress is subtly sexy with side cutouts and a respectable length.  Wear it to formal occasions with a blazer, or dress it down with a casual sweater.

For jewelry we have this pair of Swarovski earrings.  They come in silver or gold, whichever one you prefer.
