What should I wear this
Saturday night is never more than a week away, so get your glitz on! We’re talking lace, glitter high heels and jewels that dazzle. Try a detailed mesh top with smart Petite trousers and sparkly accessories, or a bright going-out top with our Petite jeans.

Now it’s getting colder,
what should I wear to work?
This AW16, the top trends just perfect for work are soft tailoring, statement shirts, monochrome shifts and a cute blazer.
I’m petite and curvy,
what’s the best clothing
It’s all about balancing proportions, so wear a printed skirt with a darker plain top or add extra focal points where you need to draw attention to, such as statement-making shoes, an oversized clutch bags or cold shoulder or collar detailing.
What’s the best trouser
style and length for me?
You won’t go wrong with cropped trousers, smart tailored styles or jeggings. Our Petite super skinny black jeans are perfect for off-duty days or for dressing up on week nights out with the girls.
How can I update my
weekend wardrobe for
autumn, and flatter
The style staples for your casual wardrobe are playful shirts, biker jackets, jeans and knitwear. For jackets try a bomber, biker or classic coat, and for knitwear we can recommend a so-chic cold shoulder jumper or a belted cardi.
I have a wedding coming up, what’s
the best dress for my shape?
Heavy lace on dresses and tops is an instant winner for shorter women, as it’s rich in detail and texture. When it comes to dress lengths, a knee-length hemline is chic, but the sheer sections on this one make it perfect for balancing a smaller frame.

Do you have any day to
night outfit ideas for
petites, as I often go out
straight from work?
Dresses make the ideal breakfast to bar outfit. We adore these velour boots that add extra luxury for office hours and beyond. Oh and don’t forget a mini tote bag – perfectly sized for a smaller frame.
A check tunic dress can be worn over trousers or tights for day and switched up come evening.
Luckily, we’ve done all the hard work for you, so any trousers from our Petite collection will suit your shape.
Alternatively, our Petite bodycon dress is super versatile whatever your office dress code.
