The ethos behind looking and feeling like you just stepped off a runway is that you learn to say goodbye to being basic with rich, feminine, bold, style. Let me show you how to look like you just stepped off the catwalk!


Step 1

To nail your catwalk confidence in real life you cannot be afraid of accentuating your petite frame. You also don’t need a perfect body to do so, or bare a lot of skin. Being petite means that it’s easier for you to fit into smaller cuts of clothing. Let’s accentuate that!

Whether your short/tall a lean body always looks great in fitted clothing. The seam lines of a jumpsuit/bodysuit are more appealing to the eye when there aren’t any bulges/ripples.

It takes a lot of confidence to wear a one piece jumpsuit. To be bold, one must embody enough self confidence to wear whatever they want. This isn’t about trying to fit it, it’s about embracing your rich feminine style that catwalk ready to take over the world… or start small on your city streets first.

Here are three excellent model worthy jumpsuit examples for you to consider starting from low/mid/high price points.

Waist Cincher

Step 2

Once your suited in your skin tight bodysuit you will want to pair it with a waist belt. This item will come be a must have to accentuate your petite frame and draw attention by decorating to your waist vs a hip belt that falls much lower.

A waist belt can be worn with oversized or fitted clothing which makes it a versatile accessory to include in your wardrobe.

When wearing a neutral bodysuit or monochromatic look a waist belt helps add dimension to your look as well as your own personal style.

Pearls, leather, and abstract buckle designs are some key details to look for as seen in the examples below.

Statement Bags

Step 3

A mid-sized statement bag is a great way to finish off your look while being functional enough to carry the essentials you need for the day with you. As a general rule for size, try not to carry a bag that is larger than your laptop to stay in catwalk territory.

Unless you’re shopping/traveling/fitness training you have no business carrying around an oversized bag everyday. It’s not sexy and to reveal your inner supermodel you need to feel light, sexy, and not weighed down by carrying luggage on your shoulder.

Textiles I adore for luxury statement bags are Faux Crocodile Embossed Print, PVC, Patent Leather & Faux Fur.

Here are four feminine statement bags that speak to some of my top textile suggestions from below.

High Heel Boots

Step 4

High heel boots are a bold and edgy way to express your feminine style. Especially when you are wearing a fitted bodysuit as mentioned above in Step 1, boots can be used as highlight to your fashion statement.

Thigh high boots put you in a different head space (literally higher up on your body) and showcase lean legs at their finest.

If you’re on the shorter side but still petite opt for an ankle boot instead. Thigh highs are unfortunately not a one size fits all style and can swallow one’s frame if your a woman under 5″5 in real life and not being shot using a long lens camera 24/7.

You now understand the fundamentals of high heels boots. Let’s look at some examples next.
