Don't wear them: 5 models of outerwear that visually shorten legs
Improperly selected outerwear can visually distort your figure and shorten your legs. This is hardly the result you would like. Petite girls are especially prone to fashion mistakes: they follow trends that (let's be honest!) are mostly created for long-legged women, and look strange or funny on short women.
Let's figure out what outerwear for the winter you shouldn't buy to avoid ruining your outfits and mood. Read more in the article by OBOZ.UA.
1. Long oversized down jacket
Yes, we know that such a jacket resembles a blanket, which is cozy to be outside even in the bitter cold. However, petite women will have to give it up. A massive maxi down jacket "shortens" the legs and visually changes the parameters of the figure. Instead, take a closer look at midi models with a belt that will emphasize the waist and elongate the silhouette.
2. Long pile maxi coat
What designers won't do to make their creations fall in love with fashionistas! One of the win-win techniques is extravagance. This includes long-pile maxi fur coats that look spectacular on tall girls. For shorter ones, it is better to look for alternative options. Otherwise, you will have to accept the fact that your legs will look shorter and wider than they actually are, and the texture will add extra volume. How to replace it? A mid-length eco-fur coat with a smooth pile.
3. Massive print
Outerwear with a massive print is not the best choice. Especially in large peas, with floral patterns, in a cage or in the style of "logomania". Such jackets are incredibly difficult to style in a way that looks organic. In addition, they visually make the figure larger.
4. Fluffy collar
A massive fluffy collar on a coat, fur coat or sheepskin coat finds its fans at different times: both 50 years ago and now. And no wonder! After all, this element of outerwear is not only beautiful, but also incredibly pleasant to the touch. Unfortunately, we'll have to say goodbye to it as well. A fluffy collar visually increases body volume and reduces height.
5. Shiny material
Down jackets made of glossy materials have long been irrelevant. Besides, they significantly "increase" the volume of the body. So why not replace them with more familiar matte jackets? If you want to diversify your outfit with interesting textures, try eco-leather products.
