I have a love/hate relationship with being short, but when it comes to fashion I love it more than I hate it. Being short allows me to wear heels or wedges without looking awkwardly tall or feeling too dressed up since people don’t really notice when I wear them.
One trend I’m loving so far are flatforms. They’re like platforms, except they’re flat instead of having a higher heel. I only have one pair, but they’re awesome and I can’t help but want more. The best part is that I get to be taller without the pain of normal heels or wedges since they’re flat! Seriously, try them out. They’re super comfy and easy to walk in.
The flatforms I have are from the best store ever, Target. I fell in love with them the moment I saw one of my friends wearing them. They’re by Mossimo and for only $30 they’re totally worth it. The nice thing about them is that they’re easy to dress up or down.
Here are a few ways I’ve worn them (:
top - unknown | pants - victoria's secret | earrings - forever21
Sweatpants are awesome and they can still be stylish. I'd wear this when I'm just hanging out in my apartment or going to class. This outfit is 100% for comfort, but still looks somewhat put together.
top - cotton on | shorts - target | backpack - target | earrings - francescas | necklace - homemade by me
This is a little nicer for outside my apartment, but still as casual and comfy as can be. I'd wear this out to run errands or meet up with friends for coffee or lunch or food in general.
romper - forever21 | skirt - victoria's secret | purse - coach | neckclace - tilly's | bracelets - somewhere in france
Even when I dress up I like to wear some form of pants, which is why I put a skirt over a romper. This is a classic trick I like to do to dress up a casual one piece outfit. This is still not super dressy or formal, but it's nice enough for me. I'd definitely wear this out to dinner with friends or family.
I love how versatile these shoes are. Plus they're comfier than normal heels or wedges and if you didn't notice, that's my top priority. Seriously though, I love them and may be looking to buy another pair of some type of flatforms. Also I highly encourage you to get some. Again, comfort is key.
Cheers to feeling taller than 5'3"
