One of the keys to boosting confidence for petite women is creating a capsule wardrobe that complements your colouring and personal style. Investing in quality pieces that fit well and flatter your figure will pay dividends in the long run. Consider the cost per wear when purchasing clothing items. While a quality coat may seem like a splurge initially, its longevity and versatility make it a worthwhile investment.

Start building your capsule wardrobe with basic neutrals that suit your skin tone. For cool skin tones, opt for black, navy, or grey, while warm skin tones can rock caramel, green, or rich brown. Neutral colours create a cohesive look and can visually elongate your silhouette, making you appear taller.

Once you have your neutral foundation, add pops of colour strategically to create interest and contrast. Stick to a column of colour concept by incorporating complementary colours into your outfits. For example, pair a navy jacket with trousers and a skirt, then add a vibrant red blouse or a crisp white T-shirt for a more polished look.
