Petite Celebrity Style Crush: Florence Pugh, 5’3”
In the second of our style crush series, we’re taking a deep dive into the wardrobe of another petite style icon Florence Pugh.
This English actress has become a sensation in recent years due to her incredible acting ability and bold fashion choices. Her standout performances in films like “Midsommar”, “Little Women”, and “Don't Worry Darling” have earned her a lot of attention. If you haven’t already noticed, Pugh is often drawn to roles with elaborate costumes, which has helped her make a splash in the fashion industry too with her unique and sometimes daring style. Her fashion sense is both youthful and sophisticated, and she always dresses to impress whether she's attending a premiere, talk show, or fashion event. Pugh is on the rise and I honestly can't wait to see what she'll do next. With her love of bold hues, embroidery, and statement silhouettes, she's sure turning many fashion heads! Here’s a little run down of what she wears on repeat if you want to emulate her look.
Florence Pugh often wears monochromatic outfits that elongate her silhouette whether this is on the red carpets or on the streets, which is a great tip for petite women who want to appear taller. By creating a continuous line of colour from head to toe, you can visually elongate the body figure. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the pieces need too one-dimensional, in fact, the actress often plays with different textures and shades. For example, think of wearing a silk blouse with a wool skirt in the same shade.
Accentuate the waistline
It's no secret that fashion can be a powerful tool for expressing oneself, and Florence Pugh seems to have mastered the art of dressing to flatter her body type. By opting for high-waisted pants and skirts, she is able to highlight her waistline and create the illusion of longer legs. This style choice not only enhances her natural curves but also exudes confidence and sophistication. Her secret though is to accessorise her outfits with belts, to further accentuate her waistline!
Heels & Platforms
It's not uncommon for celebrities to wear heels or platform shoes to boost their height and Florence Pugh is no exception. Standing at just 5'3" tall, the actress often chooses footwear that adds a few extra inches to her petite frame, no matter what the outfit or the occasion is. We’ve put together a few pictures of Florence Pugh rocking heels and platform shoes with more casual outfits to give you that little extra push and inspiration to start doing the same.
Bold prints and patterns
It's not always easy for petite women to wear bold prints without feeling overwhelmed by them, but Florence Pugh seems to have mastered the art of balancing prints and proportions. Florence's secret to pulling off bold prints is to not overdo it. Instead of going all out with a printed ensemble, she chooses one statement piece, such as a printed skirt or blouse, and matches it with simpler items to create a consistent look, whilst keeping faithful to pieces that accentuate her waistline. To break up prints, Florence also incorporates solid colours into her outfits. For instance, she might combine a printed jacket and skirt with a black top and shoes to balance the outfit.
It's no secret that Florence Pugh has made a significant impact on the fashion world, both on and off-screen. At a time when many influencers prioritise safety and minimalism, Pugh stands out by showcasing her personality through bold fashion choices. Through her fearless approach to fashion, she is inspiring women to embrace their bodies and recognise that any style of clothing, including high-end designer wear, can look stunning on all body types - even petite frames. Her clever use of fashion has established Pugh not just as a 21st-century fashion icon, but also as a champion of the body positivity movement.
