If I had a dollar for every person who has called me “short” throughout my lifetime, I’d be a millionaire – easily. And while I used to beg God for just a few more inches, my only major annoyance with being just 5 feet has been finding clothing that fits without major (and expensive) alterations. Well, until more recently.
1. Asos [SHOP]:
This is probably my top spot mainly because Asos nails my style AND fit. They also have a really solid variety. I recently purchased several sweater dresses, including the one shown above (it’s on sale for $36 today – shop here; also comes in black), and I’ve received so many compliments.
2. Express [SHOP]:
Express has always been one of my favorite stores, so I was thrilled when they started to expand their petite line. I’ve had luck with dresses and sweaters so far, just pay attention to the size chart if/when you order. I’m a size bigger in their petite collection than I am their regular sizing – which makes sense when you think about it!
3. Loft [SHOP]:
Loft is my go-to for business-casual clothing and the occasional everyday top. Their online sizing tool is awesome as it helps you find the ideal fit for you specifically! It’s hard to explain, but you’ll see what I mean when you try it!
I’m bundling these together because they are sister companies. Depending on the price point and quality you’re looking for, they both have a great variety of petite pieces for work, play, everyday!
5. Missguided [SHOP]:
While their pieces are definitely more for going out, there are quite a few hidden gems – like how perfect is this dress for the upcoming holiday season? It’s always worth a look when I’m searching for something super trendy! You may recognize this brand if you shop at Nordstrom, but they do have their own eCommerce site.
