Cropped Leather Jacket & White Shirt: H&M // Patterned Petite Leggings: c/o Matalan // Shoes: New Look
Whenever a new high street shop releases a petite range I get a little excited. If the fit is right it means that us petite folks have more options for buying trousers/leggings/jeans and more options when it comes to clothes is always a good thing! When I was offered the chance to try out a couple of pairs of leggings from Matalan’s upcoming petite collection I – to use that blogger cliché – jumped at the chance. I love a good pair of patterned leggings, they really add something to even the laziest of outfits and they can be dressed up or down, which is always a plus.
I chose to wear these leggings with a loose shirt tucked in, a leather jacket and my favourite pair of very low heeled shoes. The leggings are made from a great material so there was no visible lines where my shirt was, and importantly, they weren’t at all see-through so I could get away with wearing them without anything over (although many would argue this, I’m sure.) I really like the length and fit, too which is really important with leggings as I think they look a little odd being ‘ruffled up’.
I have another pair of leggings from this new collection that I plan on showing in an outfit post this weekend if the weather plays ball. I’m quite excited to see what the rest of the Matalan Petite Collection will have in store for us shorter ladies!
