You may have already noticed, but I am not petite. My skirt is though:
And, now that I think of it, so is my tunic. I like to thrift petite midi-skirts because they’re right about knee-length for my giant self. And my “tunic” is actually a petite dress.
I paired the pleated skirt (thrifted) with the polka dot tunic/dress (thrifted), a black studded belt (JC Penny) and neutral platform sandals (Target). I used the belt to rein in some of the volume of the tunic/dress but also to put my waist where I wanted it. Without the belt, my torso would have seemed disproportionately long. With the belt, I look leggier and less torso-y (it’s a word). The neutral shoes with this serve the same purpose, elongating my legs with what can be a tricky skirt length.
The takeaway for today? That giants can wear petites and if you want to look like a giant, move your belt up.
Happy Tuesday, All!
