The foolproof way to add a few inches to your height!

Shopping for clothes can be a struggle if you have a tiny frame. Browsing through pieces in stores more often than not leaves us empty-handed since sizes tend to run larger. Shopping online proves to be a struggle, too, what with vague and incomplete size charts. But besides finding clothes that fit right, it’s just as important to discern the exact pieces that suit well our petite figures! Scroll on for OOTD inspos you can try next!

LOOK: 10 Chic Outfit Ideas for Petite Girls

1. Jumpsuit + Heels

Here's an easy two-item OOTD that will make you look more statuesque: jumpsuit + heels! Pro tip: It’s better to stick with a jumpsuit in one color over one with loud prints that might overwhelm your tiny figure.

2. Tube Top + Long Skirt + Platform Shoes

Go for a monochromatic outfit for fuss-free dressing! Try out an all-white ‘fit like Ashley Garcia’s tube top and skirt combo that she finished off with a pair of platform sandals that gave a boost to her height!

3. Blazer + Tshirt + Flared Pants + Heels

You might be thinking that flared pants might drown a small figure but on the contrary, the right variation of this pair will do just the opposite! As seen on Elisse Joson, a pair of pants that flare out not wider than the hips will make you statuesque.

4. Sleeveless Top + Mini Skirt + Sneakers

A mini skirt is a must-have in a petite girl's closet, and Barbie Imperial is here to prove it! Not only do they come in a slew of styles to suit whatever your heart fancies, their above-the-knee length also flatters your legs, making you look taller.

5. Tube Top + Mini Skirt + Tall Heeled Boots

Tall heeled boots have a bad rap for petite girls as they are known to cut off their legs. But hear us out: It's all about finding balance and choosing the right proportions. Case in point: Aika Agustin in knee-length boots that she offset with pieces that show off her skin—tube top and mini skirt. It also helps if you match your bottoms with your boots for a more seamless look.

6. Crop Top + Loose pants + Nude Heels

Heels have long been established as a no-brainer for short girls, but did you know that the color of your footwear choice can also add a lengthening effect to make you appear more statuesque? Just take a look at Angelina Cruz who slipped into a pair of skin-toned mules that visually extended her legs! So chic!

7. Sleeveless Top + Midi Skirt with Slit

While a midi skirt isn’t our first option when it comes to wanting to look taller, a side or front slit no doubt turns this piece into a game changer! A regular midi skirt usually flatters girls with a bit more height since the skirt's hemline doesn't fall at an awkward part of their calves. But a midi skirt with a side slit exposes just enough skin that makes you seem like you have legs for days!

8. Striped One-Piece Suit

Go for thin, vertical stripes just like Vina Guerrero who is a vision in a this yellow jumpsuit! The print and cheery color totally flattered her petite figure by giving the illusion of height.

9. Bralette + Leggings + Chunky Shoes

Here's an easy tip to remember when dressing for petite frame: Keep it balanced. as Ida Anduyan demos, her bralette top goes well with her pair of leggings tucked into a heeled boot for an instantly streamlined silhouette. Note that the combo worked as she covered parts of her body that can stump her frame. Do as she does by opting for a high-waisted pair of bottoms and don't show you ankles!

10. Cropped Top + Denim Pants 

A crop top is a mainstay in almost everyone’s wardrobe and is one of those pieces you never realized have been making you look deceptively taller! Just like AC Bonifacio, her top's short hemline elongated her torso and made the petite star look like she grew a few inches, especially coupled with flared pants.
