When you’re petite people have all sorts advice about how you should dress to make sure you wear your clothes and they don’t wear you. The general consensus is flowy maxi dresses, wide-leg pants, and layered looks should be left to the tall girls, lest ye drown in your clothes. While straight-leg pants and anything that cinches the waist is a short girl’s best friend. Just a heads up, Jhene Aiko doesn’t give a damn about any of those fashion rules. And considering she’s turning 30 today, I don’t see her ever giving a damn in the foreseeable future.
Red carpet after red carpet, the singer shows up in the signature bohemian looks that fit her music and her personality, and she looks amazing every single time. At 5’2, Jhene has mastered the flared pant, layered kimono, baggy pant, floor-length skirt look all the fashion experts swear are no-nos. And if you’re a petitie girl looking for some inspiration on how to break the rules and make your fashion more posh, here are 13 looks the 30-year-old killed.
