Fact: Despite your tall stature, you shouldn’t shy away from wearing heels, and all you need is some confidence to pull it off. Like twin fashion blogger Jennifer and Desiree Selmanovic, you may go for a pair of heels that looks proportional too your body frame. Since they’ve got a long lean body, they’ll look great with stilettos and chunky heeled shoes. However, if you’re bottom heavy with thick thighs and legs, resort to chunky heels to balance your frame.

Myth 2: Petite women can’t wear long dresses and skirts.

Like fashion blogger Sydne Summer, you may go for a midi or maxi length of dresses and skirts as long as the style flatter your frame. Like her, you may go for a fit-and-flare style of dress that looks feminine, or go for a sheath style that looks classy.

Fact: If you got it some curves, flaunt it. Like fashion blogger Gabi Fresh, you can absolutely wear body-tight dresses as long as it flatters your curves.

Myth 4: Sequins can only be worn in the day.
