Petite Style Guide

Petite Style Guide

We believe that the perfect fit is the most important part of our collection, as such we spend hours working and fitting to perfection on a petite model.

Our petite collection has been scaled proportionally throughout the body to create truly stylish clothing.

There are a number of things a person 5”3 / 163cm and under can do to try to elongate their figure. Here are some tips for someone with a petite figure to follow:

Dresses

If you are petite all over then a perfectly proportioned dress is the answer. To showcase your petite figure, make sure hemlines are above or just to the knee.

A panelled or block colour dress will streamline your petite silhouette. 

Go for classic cuts to suit your petite silhouette, for example to showcase your curves pick a fit and flare shape, or for a slender frame pick a chic shift.

Tops & Bottoms

To lengthen the appearance of your legs, pick a mid-rise waist and tuck your top in, to create the illusion of height. A straight cut will slim the appearance of your overall length.

Jackets

Do you often find sleeves and jackets drown you? If so, you may have a shorter torso. A structured cropped jacket will focus the eye upwards, elongating your upper half. Plus, with our petite styles the arm length will be perfectly tailored for you.

Prints

Embrace print, however make sure you balance it out by pairing with a colour block garment. This will ensure that the print does not drown your figure, but instead creates the illusion of a longer torso.
