12 Style Hacks To Make Short Girls Look Taller!

12 Style Hacks To Make Short Girls Look Taller!

It is not criminal to be short and petite, is it? In fact, short girls are cuter and apparently, hot guys prefer them over the lassies with endless legs! However, there are certain problems with dressing up when you are not that tall. You have to pick and choose carefully so as to not overwhelm your small frame. It does not mean that you have to stay away from the fads ruling the style runways, it only means you have to adapt them to suit your frame.

(Love wearing heels but end up with sore feet and painful calves? Try these 10 Tricks for wearing high-heels with no pain!)

Take some style inspiration from the Bollywood diva such as Rani Mukherjee, Alia Bhatt, Genelia and Zarine Khan who are short in real life but are ruling the roost like Queen Bee!

Here are some guidelines to help you look taller and smarter than your frame-

1. Tailored Fit

Accentuate your curves and silhouette with sharp fitted clothes. You can layer and wear sweats too but wear structured clothing beneath and stay defined.

You have got to be super careful about the Lehenga you wear! Select the right lehenga for your body type!

2. Avoid Boxy clothing

This is one trend I hardly understand even for regular people. God gave you curves, don’t hide them beneath unshaped clothing, Flaunt them. Some trends are better left to the runway. Boxy, frumpy clothes give horizontal lines illusions and cut your height further.

3. Ditch Super Skinny Jeans

Don’t wear skinnies, they will bunch at the ankles will make you look even shorter. If you want to try them skinny, try jeans that cut off at the ankle rather than gather up in that area. Bootcuts and slightly flared pants are what would flatter you best. Pair them with wedged heels and stand tall like a model.

4. High Waist

High waisted jeans, trousers, skirts, and shorts actually look great on shorter girls. They elongate your legs and make the torso look short. The over all look is very balanced and lean.

5. Avoid Big Prints

Prints are totally trendy but big, bold patterns can obviously overwhelm your small frame. Go for vertical prints, stripes or V shaped patterns. They will elongate and flatter.

6. Wear Bright Colors

Go for bright colored clothes, as they help add height. For best results, mix and match dark and bright color clothes to your benefit.

7. Solid monochromatic patterns

Wearing a monochromatic pattern will also help create a long visual line, thus giving the illusion of height.

8. Tuck-In Those Tees!

A tucked in tee or shirt will definitely make you look more structured and less frumpy.

9. The Right Hairstyle

Picture Courtesy: vividscreen.info
The hairstyle can not only add to your charisma but also add the extra inches to your frame. Opt for short to medium length hairstyle, as it helps in highlighting the neck, thus making it look longer.

10. Maxi Dresses/Skirts

Picture Courtesy: JustFired
You don’t have to shy from them. Long dresses actually take the emphasis away from your length and focus on the overall shape. Just opt for the right length, the ones that end at the ankle or graze the floor are not right for you. Pick the ones that touch your toes. Wear a slim belt to accentuate your frame and you are ready to stand tall!

11. Hot pants and short skirts

Oh yes, they look hot on long legs but by giving away more skin, they also look superb on short girls. More skin means longer looking legs and hence a taller looking you! (Imagine Rani Mukherjee In Tara Rum Pum!)

12. Heels

Of course adding a few extra inches has never hurt right? Go for the ones with pointed toes as they only add to your elongated silhouette. Stand tall on those high heels.
So all you cute little hotties out there, don’t fret if you don’t have those inches! You can still make everyone drool with these hacks that will give those tall lasses a run for their money!

Warm clothing and ski equipment if you are headed to a ski resort up in the hills and beach wear if you are going on a tropical honeymoon.

Pack in footwear for only basic needs, a pair each of flipflops/flats, sneakers and a pair of formal sandals/heels shall see you through most places. Undergarments, socks, towels, warm cover ups etc should also be duly packed.

Although it is advisable to keep gadgets and phones restricted to emergency usage on your honeymoon, Cameras are absolutely essential to capture the milestone moments. If you don’t have one, invest in a decent camera (try pre-booking one as a wedding gift from some close friend or relative!). Exotic honeymoon locales and precious moments like these deserve better than smartphone photography. And don’t forget the chargers and accessories for your camera or  extra batteries and memory cards.

 

Important Documents

Whenever you travel, you must have the essential documents, such as valid photo IDs for passing through security at the airport. But you must carry your passports and copies of your birth certificates, especially if you’re traveling abroad. In case you lose anything, leave copies of your passports with family members with whom you’ll be in touch while you’re gone. Also, know how to reach the consulate for your country wherever you are going. If you lose your documents or need any kind of special help, the consulate is your best bet. Stay safe!

From Fat To Fit: Jyotika Khajotia’s Inspiring Transformation!

From Fat To Fit: Jyotika Khajotia’s Inspiring Transformation!

There are certain stories that are seemingly regular, but they touch a chord deep within! Stories of regular people like you and me who change their lives in the world where it is easy to get lost with so many people to bog you down. Especially, if you don’t fit into the social fabric just like the society wants you to. For e.g. people who are dark, have unconventional looks, short or fat. You’d be the butt of every joke and if you are fat or overweight, and a girl at that, then god help you!

Did you know running is a great idea? Here are 10 Awesome Reasons You Should Run Everyday!

A girl who weighed 82 kgs at some point of time will understand. The constant nagging and peer pressure, the feeling of inferiority and lack of confidence, it is amazing how our physical attributes decide our fate. Unless you change it with your will power. And that’s exactly what Jyotika Khajotia did.

P.S: 5 Hacks To Waking Up Early

She was an overweight teenager and the weight issues continued well into college. She couldn’t make friends, Had very low self-esteem and her binge eating was getting the better of her. She was struggling till one day she just decided to come out of it. Her boyfriend and now husband were a major driving force in helping her with this decision. It was a good push and it was working.

story+fb_647_110515102446

Jyotika started watching what she ate. She tried a lot of diets and managed to shed 7 kgs. But after 6 months she finally joined a gym.

This was a more scientific approach. Joytika affirms- “My basal metabolic rate (BMR) was extremely low, and I needed to create a calorie deficit. That is, I needed to burn more than what I was eating.”

A Vegetarian Menu for Healthy Weight Loss

At first she was confused because her weight was rising. But it was her muscle mass rising which would push up her BMR. Her perseverance paid off and in Dec 2011 she was offered a chance to become the trainer for aerobics and Zumba. The girl pushed her training up to 6 hrs a day for the same and in 6 months she went down to 58kgs!

She is a transformed person now. The weight loss has changed the way she presents herself and communicates. Her confidence is sky high and she aims for a fitter body and a more desirable body fat percentage. Now a certified Zumba and aerobics instructor, she leads group classes at Mantan, The Fitness Lounge in Gurgaon. Her day begins with egg whites and oatmeal, moving onto brown rice for lunch and fish or chicken for dinner. Her workout class has a blend of  strength training with cardio six days a week.

According to Jyotika, these are the three golden rules to follow for any girl who aims for a fitter body-

1. Lift heavy: “You won’t get heavy but will gain muscle mass and toning.”

2. Eat right: “60 percent of weight loss comes from nutrition. Divide your meals into two portions: raw veggies and fruits, and protein and good fats.”

3. Never skip breakfast: “Your metabolic rate goes down. Eat small portions rather than starving yourself.”

If she could go from 82kgs  to 58 kgs, so can anyone! All it takes is WILL!

Fashionista 101: Top 10 Fashion Movies

Fashionista 101: Top 10 Fashion Movies

Every fashionista must go through a training course of sorts. It starts in the younger years and develops as we get older. The required course includes a rigorous analysis of glossy mags, celeb style and of course, movies. We’ve all sat through a chick-flick and desperately wished we had a luxurious wardrobe just like our silver screen role models. The absence of money to buy a Channel tweed jacket at the age of 13 led us to daydream about the leading lady instead. Which basically meant her style, always her style – the exact flick of her cat-eye eyeliner, the precise messiness on her messy bun, the way she accessorized for a date with the hot male lead, and so on. You get the idea; the point was, we wanted all of it, especially the hottie.

If you are new bride-to-be, then you must check these 10 looks for the modern bride!

Whether they intend to or not, movies, of any ‘Wood’ have had the ability to influence our style choices in many ways. Be it a fashion biography or a film with a great costume designer, movies are always the easiest source of inspiration when it comes to style. So here’s a list of our top 10 picks loved by every fashionista!

 

Devil Wears Prada

It is quite literally impossible to not include this movie in the list. Miranda Priestly as the She-Devil incarnate and poor little Andy Sachs; a love/hate scenario ensues but that’s not the point. The point is the clothes! The tres chic clothes. Andy’s transformation from a normal city girl to a full blooded fashionista to Miranda’s love of Hermes scarves and her luxurious coats, this movie wins in every regard for us.

 

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A girl from a small town who envisions a comfy city life with a fabulous wardrobe – it’s the ultimate dream isn’t it? Tiffany’s might not be available to our fingertips (at this point) but we know we all wish for it, we all window shop and dream about “The Dream”. Seeing Holly Golightly trying to find love and fashion on a limited budget struck us all at our core because we’ve all been there. Knowing that we’re not alone in our hunt for love, money and good clothes made us love Ms. Golightly all the more.

Jane Austen. Sonam Kapoor. Abhay Deol. Clothes. I really don’t think I need to say more. But I will! On the matters of the heart, we might be a little (a lot) clueless but when it comes to the fashion…whoa, mama! Pernia Qureshi as the stylist brought about a huge change in when it came to costumes for the heroines. Long gone were the sarees and kurtas and ill-fitting outfits designed by the set costume designer. Aisha opened up our eyes to the amazing combination of vintage, couture, high-end and thrift.

Jab We Met

Here is a movie where we met the tadakti bhadakti Punjabi Kudi. At its time, this flick showed us that comfy clothes can be cool too. A long t-shirt and salwar – a dream come true for most girls. Add some desi bling to the outfit and you are ready to go. As soon as the movie hit the screens, the streets were hit with Patiala salwar and long skirts flooding every corner. This movie showed us the chill side of ethnic clothing like no other.

Clueless

This one was the original 90’s take on Jane Austen’s Emma and spewed fashion galore for every girl back then. True, we didn’t have the money but we all wanted Alicia Silverstone’s wardrobe. The mix of vintage class and 90’s edge was absolutely perfect in this movie. Chanel tweed jackets and a mini skirt, I mean ‘Hello!’ could you get more chic? No, no you couldn’t. This movie made us want to be the coolest girl in school with the best style.

Sex and the City

Following Carrie Bradshaw and her posse’s love was a bang-on, satirical replication of our life, or what we wished our life was. The moment the show ended, we lamented its loss and its movie revival got our hearts beating all over again! A group of New York City girls on the big screen had us sitting on the edge of our seats for all the right reasons. The reasons being the clothes of course.

Annie Hall

Woody Allen is quirky enough to have us hooked on to his movies, but Annie Hall had something a little extra. Diane Keaton was the one of the first women who introduced androgynous dressing to the masses. It might have started out in the 70’s, but this is one trend that has stuck around till today. Equality and fashion working together at its best.

The Great Gatsby

Everyone might not have read the book, but we all saw the movie. Leonardo and Big B aside, this movie had the best interpretation of period clothes. The 20’s was a radical age in terms of fashion, the world saw girls wearing knee length dresses, drop waists, and super chic headbands. A combination of Prada and Miu Miu dresses had us salivating for more. The “Roaring Twenties” were visualized for us in an epic format of clothes and style.

Pretty Woman

A street-side hooker turned sophisticated lady is kind of our dream minus the hooker part. Thinking about the scenario of a rich businessman taking on a personal prostitute out of boredom was a little weird but thankfully that is not the point we’re focusing on right now. Luckily Julia Roberts’ trashy chic is back in fashion now with cut-out dresses. But the long, elegant evening gown with a great necklace is something that will always be in style and will always be sophisticated.

Ram-Leela

What better way to end with than with an Anju Modi ensemble movie. At the end of the day, we all envisage ourselves in an eye-catching ethnic outfit flirting with our crush of the moment (without the gun). The workmanship is a guarantee with the designer at hand but also the cut, the flare, and the makeup, we wanted it all. Wedding and party goals were all about getting the same lehenga style or as close as we can get with Chandni Chowk.

So, I think for people for whom gold is a dear color, these golden pumps, golden earrings with a hint of blue and the multicolor clutch with a golden background are the festival must haves.

If red is your favorite color then you can’t miss this one.  The red ankle sweeping kurta and the black high heels are a perfect combination. Keep your accessories restricted to the oversized earrings. Complete the look with the gold clutch and have fun at the taash party.

This is the latest trend that our Btown divas are flaunting and they are doing it for a reason. The long skirt looks magnificent with a crop top. To make the pastel outfit shine in the daylight just wear the golden earrings and a golden bracelet. A matching clutch is a must here.

So with these very ethnic yet very debonair looks, you can make a lot of eyebrows go towards heaven.
