Don’t just take my word for it
“I’m quite certain that “Never Short on Style” is by far the most comprehensive style guide for petites ever written! Any petite who takes this information to heart can expect to look fantastic and save money by avoiding costly mistakes. Now I can see clearly why certain items in my closet, even those designed for petites, have not been quite right for me. Thanks a million Imogen!”
“Never Short on Style ebook identifies the different horizontal body shapes, vertical body shapes and body variations. For each of the different body shapes Imogen gives excellent examples and pictures of which styles look best and why, with specific advice for styling clothes for petite women.
What I really like about this ebook are the outfit illustrations and the descriptions and illustrations of using line and design to create the illusion of the perfect figure. Imogen makes the sometimes complex line and design theory easy to use in practice by showing you exactly how to apply each technique she talks about. This includes creating the illlusion of height, how to highlight your best points and how to minimize any figure flaws.”
“I’ve purchased many, many style books over the years, but very few specifically addressed those of use who are Vertically Challenged™, beyond mentioning that a) we may need to shorten sleeves and pant legs, and b) that we should stay away from large prints. But in my own experience, finding styles that flatter a shorter frame is far more complicated that just saying no to oversized florals and lopping a few inches off a hem. Not all petite women are shaped the same or have the same proportions. What applies to dressing for shape on a taller person also applies to us, but with some additional caveats.
That’s why when I learned image consultant Imogen Lamport (of Bespoke Image and the blog Inside Out Style) had written a style book specifically for Petites, I was thrilled. Having been fortunate enough to work with Imogen in person, I know first hand that she really knows this stuff Inside Out and in amazing detail. When I received the book, I was even more delighted; I’ve never seen a style guide this comprehensive!
For those who are looking for nuts-and-bolts style advice for Petites, this is the guide for you. From the broadest concepts such as which styles will flatter your body shape, body proportions (which I learned during our workshop are just as important as body shape for selecting clothing styles) and coloring down to details such as which jewelry or sunglasses will best suit your features, Imogen leaves no style stone unturned. The book is illustrated throughtout with images that clearly demonstrate the concepts Imogen describes.”
