#AskLucia -Dating a shorter guy

Lucia Musau

Happy Friday!

Today we are going back to #AskLucia and first I would like to apologize to all those who have send questions which I haven’t been able to address yet. Kindly bear with me, I’m working on that. So to start us off, here is a question from one of my readers…


Before we discuss the fashion tips; I should mention that, in my opinion height shouldn’t be an issue in the first place. I would like to think that before you started dating you both knew your height differences that means you love each other just the way you are. So whereas you might feel the need to wear flats always you shouldn’t be obligated, as long as you are both okay with it. Look at Kevin Hart and his girlfriend Eniko Parish (he is 5 4′ and she is 5 7′ ) yet she still rocks her heels and if you ask me they look amazing

Anyhow if you would like downplay your height, here are some fashion tips:

Instead of vertical stripes choose horizontal ones. Vertical stripes will make you appear even taller

Try full dresses and skirts, they tend to draw the eye horizontally

Avoid monochromatic outfits by creating a contrast between your tops and bottoms i.e make sure your top and bottoms are different colors or you could go with a printed bottom for example

Shoes with straps over the ankle will help in making your legs appear shorter

For your hair try styles which add volume to the sides

Lastly, be confident! Confidence is the best tip you can have, don’t slouch so as to appear shorter instead stand tall and be proud of your height.

Hope this helps and all the best!

What is your view on this, what advice can you give this reader?

    I think that height should not really bother you provided you love your man and he loves you the way you are.
    I love your jean Lucia. Can’t believe it was thrifted

    I agree that height should not matter but am 5ft tall and very petite with a serious baby face, dating a guy shorter than me will look like two highschool kids which honestly once you pass 20 that aint cute anymore, but i love your look, simple and very chick:)
