3 Tips on How To Look Tall in a Chunky Cardigan

First and foremost let me squeeze  in a little introduction and share to you a little something about my love for fashion.

Why do I love fashion? For me it’s a form of art, it’s creating something out of nothing, out of what you already have into something. Styling outfits is not like a Pulitzer prize kind of thing but it’s still a form of art, an expression. Some of you will probably find me silly and think of it as a superficial thing. It is indeed, but for us people who loves and follow it aren’t necessarily. I don’t dressed up with high end brands from head to toe because I’m not rich. Most of all, my relationship with people and real friendships doesn’t rely on clothing either. I repurpose and redone my clothes many times because of my height and body type.

Simply put, Fashion is a way of expressing ourselves. It’s like people who expresses their love on video games,cars,collectibles,make-up,crafts,baking,videography,writing etc. It is just a matter of how passionate we are, what platform we express it or if we choose to express it. Also, through computers and internet there is  a rise of new jobs. You see a lot people right now working at home. In this day of age, we are given with so many options and it’s up to us on what direction to take.

Now, Let’s talk about …..

How To Look Tall in a Chunky Cardigan if you are Petite

  1. Monotone outfit from top to bottom  – If you are 5 ft tall or less, chunky cardigan is truly not your best friend. But if you like the style and you want to pull it off , pick a dominant color from your cardigan and use that as a base color of your outfit.
  2.  Wear high heels –  This is pretty much self- explanatory, you always look tall in heels. But an extra tip, make it the same color as your outfit if you are wearing a chunky cardigan.  The ankle boots would define or emphasize my short legs if I was wearing a different color boots. It cuts the illusion of elongation.
  3. Less is more – When styling a chunky cardigan, you want to make it look sleek. It’s already bulky enough, you don’t need extra bulk, extra bling, it will look too busy. The cleaner it looks, the better.
