How to Dress as Comfortably as You Can
Cut a Narrow Silhouette
Pick clothes that aren't restrictive but aren't oversize, either. Avoid yards of excess fabric—big clothes make you look bigger.
Pair Hard with Soft
Combine a more tailored piece (a blazer) with an unstructured one (a jersey skirt).
Neutral tones and a lack of embellishment keep an outfit feeling neat and understated.
Choose the Right Shoes
Petites can pull off longer lengths by getting a lift from a wedge or platform (pumps look outdated). If you're taller, I like ballet slippers, sandals, even dressy sneakers.
