Short and Slim Body type

Women who are short in height and have a slim figure need to choose their saree carefully. Avoid big prints and embroidery. Use delicate embroidery or plain coloured saree. Preferably wear Sarees with small border or no border at all Just like Divya Dutta in the below picture. Never use vertical printed Sarees as they will make u look stunted, instead go for horizontal prints that will give you a taller frame. Check out how Rani Mukherjee has used horizontal prints in her favour.

Few more tips

  • Pay extra attention to the drape of your saree, be whatever material it be. Any saree would look dull and drab if not draped properly and pleated perfectly. Try to take smaller pleats to give a more dramatic look.
  • Keep in mind Contrast. Heavy Saree should go with a lighter blouse and vice versa. Similarly a heavily embroidered Saree should go with delicate accessory and minimal make-up so that the Saree can stand  out. You can choose to doll up in terms of jewellery if you are going for a lighter saree, but keep in mind always to use Statement pieces and not all at once.

Finally remember one thing!! Keep it Glamorous!!
