Whilst clothing options for petites have gotten a lot better in recent years, something that can still be a struggle each year is finding a winter coat. We’re still much shorter (pun totally intended) on options when it comes to long coats that – y’know – actually keep you warm without a breeze around the middle and with the right length sleeves. For example, ASOS currently have 24 petite coats on sale compared to 252 in their main collection* (not including maternity, plus & curve and tall because I know you girls are underrepresented and limited on choice, too.)
*Correct as of the 7th January 2017, and I know there are loads more places to buy coats from but considering ASOS has such a wide selection of clothing I wanted to use them as an example.
The Winter Coat of Petite Dreams
This year I feel almost triumphant that I’ve found a coat that I genuinely love rather than settling for one just because it fit and I needed something warm to wear. It’s a delight from Miss Selfridge petite (which I bought from ASOS because I’m all about that ASOS Premier life) and it was a steal at £69.
Now, I don’t want to detract from the coat but can we take a minute to admire these boots? The heel on them is quite high so I personally can’t walk in them for too long, but for going from car to desk they’re perfect. Plus I love that I basically just wore them here with some leggings and a top and boom – outfit.
