Five Items Every Petite Wardrobe Needs

Five Items Every Petite Wardrobe Needs. Petite Wardrobe Essentials.

Well fitting jeans

At least one pair of well-fitting, flattering jeans is a must have in any wardrobe. Choose a fit that you feel comfortable with and that fits you well and you’re good to go! If you want to make your legs look longer go for a high waist pair – I highly recommend Topshop Joni Jeans for their amazing fit and comfort.

A Blazer

Like a good pair of jeans, every wardrobe needs a blazer. They’re the ultimate finish for a simple t-shirt and jean combo, you can throw them on over a day dress to make it look like you’ve made an effort (even if you haven’t) and they are the ultimate cover-up on chilly nights out! Choose a cropped, fitted blazer to give the illusion of a longer torso.

A Plain Shirt

Whether tucked into a skirt or trousers, worn loose over leggings or layered under a dress, a shirt is one of the most versatile items in any wardrobe! Treat yourself to one from the petite section one so that it fits your proportions and you’ll feel fabulous every time you put it on!

A Little Black Dress

No matter your style, your height, where your wobbly bits lie or anything else, everyone needs an LBD in their wardrobe. With tights it’s good to go for day time, go bare legged and add heels for night time – an LBD the ultimate transitional piece.

A Skater Skirt

Skater skirts are flattering for all body types and can be worn for pretty much any occasion. They also have the benefit of making your legs look longer, which is always a positive in my books!

So, these are mine… what is your petite must-have wardrobe item?
