How to Dress like a Supermodel as a Petite Girlie


Understanding how to balance your outfit to create a longer, leaner silhouette is one of the key secrets to dressing like a supermodel.

Go for pieces like high-waisted pants and skirts, these will help you elongate your legs while pieces like V-neck tops draw the attention up and this gives the illusion of a longer torso.

Go Monochrome

If you want to appear taller, monochrome outfits are the magic you need. Wearing a single color from head to toe can create a streamlined look that will give you the silhouette of a longer body frame.


Do not underestimate the power of tailoring. Clothes that perfectly fit your frame can make all the difference.

Make sure all your clothes are tailored to fit, it’s all about those clean lines and perfect fits that hug your body in all the right places.

A pair of perfectly hemmed trousers or a well tailored blazer can turn your regular outfit into something extraordinary.


Accessorizing properly is another fabulous way to add that supermodel touch to your look.

Go for accessories like a statement belt which helps cinch your waist and add definition to your overall look. A pair of heels would also work wonders in elongating your frame by adding extra height even if it’s just a few inches.

Let’s not forget jewelry; Long earrings and necklaces can add length to your frame as well.

These little pieces are definitely important if you’re a petite girl who wants that supermodel look.


The last but definitely not the least on this list is confidence. If you’ve ever watched a runway show, a key part of the catwalk is the model’s confidence and poise. Even when there’s a mishap like a wardrobe malfunction, they keep their head high and keep going.

Confidence is the ultimate accessory so, walk, talk and smile with confidence.

Now let’s check out some outfit combinations that can help you achieve that supermodel look you want.

While you can go for bolder colors, neutrals colors are better because they give off a casual yet classy look.

Pair with a fashionable bag and a pair of platform heels for added height whilst maintaining comfortability. You can throw on sunshades as well to seal off the look.

Don’t forget, confidence is your greatest accessory.

A Mini Dress

A simple mini dress paired with a pair of sleek heels will do the trick as well.

Accessorize minimally, make sure your hair is in order and you’re good to go.

If you pay close attention, models off the set tend to stick to casuals more. Add this trick to your styling and you’re all set.

Pairing a black t-shirt with a blue wide legged jeans and a pair of boots has this edge to it. Throw on a waist belt to properly define your waist and fashionable sunshades and you have that supermodel look you’re vying for.

White Button-Down Shirt with Skinny Jeans

While you might be expecting me to tell you to go for extremely fancy or eccentric outfits in order to feel like a supermodel, it’s quite the contrary.

Supermodels off the runway actually go for simpler pieces. Granted they may be high fashion pieces; still doesn’t mean you can recreate with affordable fashion pieces.

A button-down shirt and skinny jeans paired with brown boots (preferably high-heeled) is simple yet stylish. Add a statement belt for definition and finesse.
