Spring is coming, a flowy floral tunic is a must have in every girl’s wardrobe. But reality hits hard, you’re only 5ft3, ‘flowy’ also means ‘baggy’, and ‘tunic’ also means your legs are basically cut short in halves. While this may look amazing on a 5ft9 model, the look just won’t work for you.
So here are a few things you CAN do if you’re a petite girl who loves her flowy floral tunic this coming season:
- Add a belt: define where your torso ends and where your legs start by wearing a belt on your smaller waist. This helps make you appear a little taller and not make your legs disappear behind that half shirt half dress.
2. Avoid calf length boots: Yea I know yours are really cute, and yea, you need to wear them before it gets too hot in the summer. But please, don’t! Not with this tunic dress. You’d draw attention to your calves and make the illusion that your legs are cut short. Wear your high heels, your flats, anything lower than ankle, OR anything knee length and above. These Over-The-Knee boots surely don’t disappoint.
3. Smaller accessories: Small cross body bag is better than a big tote. Save your handy LV Neverfull for another day, opt in for a smaller handbag. Small earrings are better than long drop statement earrings.
Sometimes you maybe able to wear big statement accessories, but only if the print on your tunic isn’t so busy and bold, like if your tunic is a solid white color for instance. But the title of this post is “guide to wearing a floral tunic”, so I’m going to assume you’re wearing a busy colorful floral print. General rule of thumb, the bolder and busier your print is, the smaller and less accessories you need.
I hope these are helpful to you! Thank you so much Pink Blush for sending me this dress. Please take a look at the Pink Blush collection, and Pink Blush Maternity collection. They have such cute items for very affordable prices!
