I normally wear a lot of dresses and skirts because it is a bit of a mission to find trousers when you barely reach the dizzy heights of 5ft 1 inch. Luckily I don’t seem to be restricted to the petite section in most stores because a lot of dresses are designed to be worn just below the rear – These are generally the perfect length for a petite who doesn’t need to look like mutton dressed as lamb!
If I am heading for a petites department, I find I’m constantly drawn back to Miss Selfridge. They are particularly suitable for maxi dresses and are not too expensive compared to other high street stores. They also tend to stock extremely colourful items, which I’m always drawn to.
Below are a few of my top picks that are currently in stock. I’m resisting the urge to buy at the moment, but who knows what the weekend might bring…
Petites Smudge Floral Maxi – Price: £33.00 – Also available in standard sizes.
This is in the same style as another maxi that I purchased from Miss Selfridge last year.
I have a feeling that it will look even better in store… If only we had some sun!
Petites Ombre Shirt – Price: £32.00
I probably wouldn’t wear this myself due to the lack of sleeves, but I think it deserves a mention for looking so fab.
Petites Zip Front Playsuit – Price: £39.00 – Also available in standard sizes.
Great detail on the front, which turns this plain coloured playsuit into something a bit more desirable and flirty.
Petites Zig Zag Printed Dress – Price: £37.00
I purchased this dress to take with me on my trip to San Fran and I love it!
It fits perfectly and looks fab with a denim jacket and footless tights.
Have you got a favourite high street store that you constantly go back to for the correct sizing?
