People think that someone who’s small and tiny can where anything. They’re petite, so everything looks great, right? Wrong. There actually are certain styles that don’t flatter a small frame, which means that you should def steer clear of them, or donate them to some of your taller friends if they’re already in your closet.

So what kinds of styles are we talking about here? You don’t want to wear horizontal stripes or wide belts, mainly because they make you look even shorter and smaller than you already are. And you might as well just forget those harem pants because they’ll make your legs look like stumps. But actually. We’re not trying to offend you if you’re someone that rocks these 24/7, we’re just here to help. So click through the slideshow to see our tips for what NOT to wear if you’re petite.
