My New Favorite Brand for Petite Clothing

As a petite woman, it’s so unlikely that shopping in “regular” sizing results in a successful purchase—a well-fitting piece of clothing. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for stores that carry a broad range of petite sizing, so that I can create a “library” of sorts, for places to turn when I’m looking to add to my wardrobe.

The newest find? Wait for it… Abercrombie & Fitch.

I started shopping at A&F again last year (this skirt was $15 and I’ve worn it countless times), and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and affordability of their styles.

Only recently did I stop back in for a recent look, to find that they now carry dresses, skirts and pants in petite lengths (#win). This suede dress is a fall MUST-HAVE. It is perfect for dozens of events, and SUPER easy to transition from work to weekend.

Just the other day I wore it to work, as styled below, except I swapped out the OTK boots for a pair of classic pumps. And actually, for my commute, I swapped out my pumps for a pair of simple leopard loafers.

HOW TO STYLE IT:

1.) Casual – With a black and white striped tee and sneakers
2.) Work – With a floral silk blouseΒ and nude pumps
3.) Dress – with a tissue turleneck and OTK boots, as styled below.
