But which styles work best for petite women. We’ve rounded up the best styles of sunglasses for a small face.

Round

The key to solving dressing dilemmas that all petite women face is to have a wardrobe full of classic staples.  Round glasses are a great addition to a classic wardrobe. There are few shapes as simple and timeless as the round frame sunglasses. You really can’t go wrong with such a timeless look.

To rock this look, find a pair of round sunglasses that sits just above your eyebrows and right on your cheekbones. For more tips on finding the right pair, check out or post on finding the most flattering style style for your face.

 

 

Cat-Eye

Cat-eye frames are a versatile choice that can complement the features of most face shapes. You can instantly dress up a classic wardrobe with a statement making pair of cat-eye sunglasses. Women who wear cat-eyes are cool,  flirty, and bold. Think old Hollywood glamour. Cat eye glasses were a longtime favorite among fashion icons including the petite actress Audrey Hepburn.

Why Handmade is Better for Petites

 

Everyone knows the key to shopping when you’re petite is to find what fits and buy 10 of em! This works a million times better when you buy high quality products for obvious reasons but when you buy handmade fit is not an issue. Here are some more reasons why handmade is that much better for petite women.

Smaller sizing

Handmade usually not only carries smaller sizes but is often willing to include a smaller size just for you. That ring only comes in size 5? Ask and I bet they can make it in size 4; this is especially true for etsy shops that even have a Request Custom Order button! Etsy makes contact with the shop especially easy, much easier than any department store website.

Customizing your purchase

Since you’re talking directly with the person who is making what you buy they might be open to tweaking certain things just to cater to your needs. The strap on the bag too long? It’s no problem for them to shorten it before it’s sewed on.

Free alterations

I recently bought this Bralette from Handmade by Elma; not only was the bra gorgeous and well made, but I got a message from her asking how the fit was and she offered free alterations! This is huge if you’re petite since these costs add up.

Handmade products are unique just like you!

There’s just something about having a product that very few people own. People also seem to love items that aren’t from a big name company. Support the little people I say 😉

 

 

Quality

Yes handmade tends to be more expensive but the quality more than makes up for it. I saw tons of Bralettes for less than half of what I paid but you just imagine how quickly it will look faded or worn out. The products also last longer and are made using better products.  Counting removing the need for alterations, and the purchase is definitely worth it.

Books for Petite Women

Looking for a new read? Check out these books that cater to the petite reader.

   I love the idea behind this book. We alter clothes to fit our bodies, why not alter our diets and exercise routine as well?

 

 

 

 

A funny and amusing look at being short and the advantages of being petite.

Actress Kristen Bell (5’1″) of  Forgetting Sarah Marshall said    “5’1 is the new 6’2, and Becky’s book proves it.”

Becky Murphy, the author had this to say about starting the book:

“I’d Rather Be Short happened because I wished it already existed. I didn’t particularly like my stature at the time, and I wanted someone to tell me it was awesome (because it is). I decided to take care of it myself, and luckily it worked out. Getting published is a dream come true and I can’t wait to see it on shelves this fall”

A summary from the author: “What looks good on a size two petite may not look so good on a size twelve petite and vice versa. All petite women should dress for their figure shape and learn how to maximize their assets, minimize their flaws. A entire section of The Petite Handbook is dedicated to helping         petite women determine their figure shape and best looks.”

Ok so this one is not just for petites but this book has a fitting room section with subsections for all petite silhouettes such as petite inverted triangle, short petite rectangle, etc.  Bradley Bayou is an award winning fashion designer that  worked with celebrities.  Paula Abdul  (5’0″) said “Bradley Bayou is the bomb! He makes women look absolutely exquisite regardless of their shape or size.”

And for the petite seamstress that can sew:

 

 

 

 

 

 

One reviewer wrote “Very handy guide for sewing for the vertically challanged and horizonically blessed. Great directions and instructions and illustrations.
I will use this a lot.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book includes hundreds of detailed photos that show every step of the way to make adjustments  for a variety of  basic pattern styles and figures.
