Need help to pick out the right outfit for your enviable slender frame? (Thinkstock)

Can’t figure out how to carry off clothes on your dainty frame? Here’s help. While being petite has its perks such as looking younger than your age and rocking whichever trend you choose, the cons of not finding the right size and frequent trips to the tailor are also common. So, save yourself some trouble and check out these easy tricks to shop perfectly for your slender frame.

1 Maxis over bodycons
Bodycon dresses will make you more body-conscious than before. Since they are the spanx version of dresses, with your figure you can afford to give them a miss. Go for flowy silhouettes like maxi dresses instead. They will provide volume to your frame and look great on you.

2 Say yes to denims
While you’d love to rock leggings, they’ll end up making your legs look skinnier than they actually are. So, opt for jeans instead. Denim jeans are made of a thicker material and add more weight to your otherwise slender legs.

3 Stripe it horizontal, not vertical
It is common knowledge that vertical stripes make one look thin while horizontal stripes add inches to the frame. It’s obvious what we’re suggesting, isn’t it? Wear tops, dresses and skirts with horizontal stripes. Not only will you be doing your figure a favour, you’ll be rocking the biggest trend of the season, too!

4 Swap chiffon for silk sari
Steer clear of saris in thin chiffons and georgettes. Instead, classy silks and rustic cottons will add more volume to your frame.

5 Get baggy with style
Give the figure-hugging tops a break and opt for tops with flowy silhouettes. You would look best in oversized tees, loose tops and whimsical blouses.
