Petite clothing refers to anyone under the height of 5ft 4in. The trouble is that petite people are a diverse group, and they come in all shapes and sizes. I am a small petite, I am under 5ft and wafer thin. So where can a woman like me shop, and how can clothes inspire me as a writer? I love looking at different clothes styles and thinking about the image they portray, or how practical they are. You don’t want to trek through a forest in a prom dress. So let’s look at some companies and what they have to offer.
Anthropologie – They have a lovely petite fashion range which come in many sizes. The clothes they have are classy and chic. I adore their clothes. They also have amazingly chic home accessories which can make any home look stylish. For me this style of clothes can highlight a character who knows their own mind, and knows what is what.
Banana Republic – This site has a good range of business and stylish petite clothing. Their petite sizing ranges from 2 – 16. They also offer fantastic accessories. These are the clothes of the woman who means business and yet is still feminine.
BHS – Offers a nice petite range at the lower end of the price range. But they have some fantastic looking clothes on offer. These are more everyday clothes, and yet speak of an amazingly strong woman who is focused.
Boden – Another site with a petite range, but there is something quite unique about many of these styles. There is the chic black look and the colourful look to choose from. There is something very relaxed about this style. I see it as the sort of person who never lets things get in their way and is always relaxed about life.
Coast – Whilst they may not have the largest selection they have some gorgeous dresses that I would adore to own. Sheer jaw dropping beauty. These are the clothes for the woman looking to make a statement and maybe impress.
Debenhams Wide range of styles, but have that look of someone who is outgoing.
Dorothy Perkins Nice range for the lower priced market. What I love about these styles is that they are versatile and could be worn in so many situations. For me those I imagine cuddling up by a fire with a book.
J-Crew Fantastic range some marvellous everyday clothes and some I would love to go to an afternoon tea in.
Jeetly Dedicated to petite fashion this is like a dream come true for me, and they range is oh so stylish.
New Look They have a wide range of clothing, and a great petite range. There is something quite casual about what they have on offer.
Nordstorm – This website not only has one of the best names out it is packed full of beautiful petite clothes. It also has some great looking accessories and make up. There is also a kids range which is both stylish and reasonably priced. It is definitely worth checking out. Their home section also has some quality items. There is heaps of inspiration here.
Petite Legs – Gosh I love this site as it actually has clothes for smaller people like me. There are some very colourful clothes here for those women who want to get noticed.
Précis Petite Great site some lovely clothes on offer. Very stylish and modern.
Very Here we have a great selection of casual clothes.
