Being petite definitely has its advantages; walking under low hanging branches, maneuvering through crowds, and airplanes seats are practically “made” for those who lack height. However, when it comes to fashion, things can get a little tricky.I’ve got a couple of rules to lay down for ya …
Rule #1- a great tailor will be your new best friend
Rule #2- know where to shop and which brands to look for while shopping for your smaller frame
Most women who are on the shorter side have a hard time finding clothing that fits and flatters the figure. Either the pants are too long, the sleeves are even longer, or everything seems to just “hang” off the body.
I’ve gathered the top 5 brands that have your back, petite ladies. Yep the 5’4″ and under crowd can have fun with fashion too!
When it comes to denim, more and more brands are becoming petite friendly! I suggest Joe’s, J Brand, or Paige Denim. All of these brands carry pants that have a shorter inseam and a higher turn at the knee for the perfect fit.image via Denim Blog
Banana Republic has petite clothing for every occasion. They’ve got a boatload of classics and some secretly awesome pieces stashed away as well. Plus, L’Wren Scott has a collection at Banana and is available for petites.image via Fashionsita.com
J. Crew offers their special sizes for those with a smaller frame. The thing I love about J. Crew is that even though they are technically “preppy” there is always something to appeals to a multitude of styles.image via Move Slightly
