It can’t be denied that petite ranges have come a long way in recent years. The vertically challenged were once a demographic that the majority of fast-fashion companies didn’t cater for, but it seems the winds are finally a-changing.
However, this isn’t to say that every petite range is amazing- because that’s far from the truth. In fact, many of these collections are extremely limited when compared to their core range counterparts. In order to separate the wheat from the chaff, I’ve selected a few of my favourites on the high street right now…
Once the go-to brand for all things denim, Gap may not be a millennial’s first choice for jeans- but it should be. Though their clothing remains reasonably priced, the quality rivals that of many designer brands and the style is pretty cool too.
Topshop has long been a petite haven, but I still think they lack enough variety when compared to their core range (JUST SAYIN’). Despite this, they’ve brought out some banging pieces lately and if you’re on the hunt for some casual daywear this Summer- they’ve got it covered.
For Top Quality
So it turns out that, as well as selling pretty cool homeware, Anthropologie has an adorable petite range too! It’s comprised of quite random pieces but it’s totally worth having a look at if you’re building your Summer ‘drobe right now- be prepared to spend big though.
If you’re on a smaller budget and want to stay on trend this Summer, Boohoo is where it’s at. Ideal for glam festival looks and holiday shopping, they have loads of different options for the petite lady.
If you’re of miniature proportions like me, you’ve probably bought stuff from ASOS Petite before. They’re one of the only brands that stock a good selection of “dressy” garments that aren’t hideously basic. You can’t beat great style and lots of variety; ASOS is always a winner.
Finding smart Summer workwear isn’t easy at the best of times, but can be particularly tricky if you’re on the shorter side. For a wardrobe selection that’s both chic and sassy, it’s definitely worth having a look at Boden’s petite range. From wrap dresses and culottes to pencil skirts and chinos, they have you covered no matter what field you work in.
