It takes a bit of work to figure out the fall trends and decide which ones are right for you. When you’re short and small, you’ve got the extra challenge of finding something that fits right too! So, to help you out, here’s a look at some petite fall styles that have been styled just for you.
Here’s a gorgeous dress that’s a great choice for Petites for a couple of reasons. First, this stunning Evergreen shade is the most popular new fall color. It’s dark, like black, so it’s slimming, which helps make you look taller. Plus, the cut of the dress follows your curves. There’s no extra bulk to drown your small frame.
Wear this dress with tall riding boots and a plaid scarf. Add a small bucket bag to balance things out, and you have a warm, cozy fall look that’s smart and sophisticated.
Ruffles have been trending this fall and are a great way to inject some softness and femininity into your wardrobe. Large ruffles can overpower Petites, and dainty-colored ruffles (such as pink) can make a mature petite woman look too junior.
The solution is like this: a tailored coat in a deep, rich shade with a modest ruffle. The streamlined cut and the dark burgundy color help balance out the ruffle’s sweetness, so you still get a pretty feminine feel, but you don’t look like a little girl.
This is a great everyday coat over jeans and a pretty blouse. Suede booties with chunky heels help add some height and accentuate the nice long, lean lines of this coat.
Chunky Knits, especially turtlenecks, are trending this fall, and this rust-colored one is a beauty. Maybe you’ve heard that if you are petite, you shouldn’t wear tops longer than your hipbone, or your legs will look short. There’s always an exception, and this sweater is it.
This is a petite-sized sweater, so it is cut to fit your tiny figure, and see the slit? Even though the top is longer, it still shows a lot of your leg because of the slit. This optical illusion makes your legs look longer than they are. This is a great look to go with suede booties and a fringe bag. It’s casual but classy- a great weekend look!
