When you’re short, shopping for clothing is a bit of a battle. As someone who’s under 5’3″, I’ve regularly found myself in fitting rooms trying on laughably long jeans or jackets that make me look like I’ve come straight from the ’80s (such as unintentionally oversized shoulders). If you’re nodding along in empathy, rest assured that I feel your pain. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

3. Opt for cropped, fitted denim.
4. Wear high-waisted trousers.
5. Tailor your pieces.
6. When in doubt, go tonal.
7. Do oversized, but don’t excessively layer.
8. Invest in a long coat.
9. Don’t underestimate small heels.
