Petite Turtlenecks that Turn Heads

Your online guide for warm petite turtleneck sweaters.

Turtlenecks are a versatile sweater to have in your wardrobe. They can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up for the office with a business suit. They bring the face into focus and can be flattering if used the right way. As petite women, there are definitely some rules to follow when shopping for turtlenecks.

Bulkiness is the key word! Stay away from any turtleneck that is bulky. This will add unwanted weight to a shorter woman, and we all know, no woman wants to look heavier. Pick a material that is light-weight and fits closer to the body. Also, make sure that the length is not too long or too short. The material should also be comfortable so you are not irritated and scratching at your neck all day long.

The most important part of the turtleneck is the neck area. We are still following the bulky rule, so make sure the neck is not overpowering your smaller frame. Try a mock neck, which is the same height as a regular turtleneck, it just doesn’t fold over. Less material is less bulky and helps flatter a petite woman.

Feminine details, like ruffles, are always fun. Look for turtlenecks with small ruffles or designs. This will help the sweater and detailing stay in proportion to your body. Waistline emphasis is a very flattering detail for petite woman. It brings the focus to the smallest part of the body. Necklaces and belts are another great way to add detail to turtlenecks.

The best thing to remember as petite woman is to shop in the petite department. You will look more put together with clothes that fit you properly.
