As you may (or may not know) I am under 5ft tall, or should I say short?! I thought I would put a little post together on the best stores for petite girls to shop at, In my opinion anyways. I love being short, it’s never bothered me whatsoever… but shopping can be a pain as I’m sure extra tall girls also know! I mean jeans and trousers are great but they usually need rolling or taking up and those ripped knee jeans that are really in right now, well the rips just don’t reach my knees more like my ankles haha! Forever rolling or shoving up long shirtsleeves, buying oversized anything just isn’t an option as I’ll usually look like I’m drowning in fabric and as for Maxi dresses and skirts, when will that trend end?! Here’s a list of shops where I find some petite fashion gems for myself!
River Island – they do short length jeans and extra short (hallelujah, no rolling up!)
Topshop – their petite jeans are also great especially leigh and jamie jeans.
Very – Offer some great branded petite options.
ASOS – I love their jeggings, but I’ve found their petite jeans aren’t usually short enough (for me anyways!)
River Island – stock some shoes in a size 2.
New Look – also go down to a 2 online and in-store .
Next Kids section – I find some fab shoes here (often way cheaper than adults too, bonus!)
ZARA – Also go down to a size 2, but I’ve noticed these sell out super fast sadly!
DUNE – have shoes and boots available in size 2.
ASOS – A huge selection to choose from, from formal to loungewear, to t-shirts.
Topshop – So good to know they usually do most items also in petite.
Coats and Jackets
New Look Kids – Often the same as adults, yet shorter length, shorter sleeves and cheaper in price!
Miss Selfridge petite – Always a gorgeous selection of coats and jackets in the winter.
Dorothy Perkins – Stock some lovely workwear including petite pencil skirts, jumpers and dresses.
Wallis – their petite range has some lovely formal trousers, shirts and dresses.
ZARA kids – I find that items with the age 14-15 is similar to a petite size 8.
ASOS – their knitwear is usually a great fit also. No drowning in jumpers or cardigans here.
New Look Kids – again I often find some lovely knitwear here age 14 or 15.
BooHoo – Stock a great selection of going out dresses and clothes, often cheap too!
Miss Selfridge – Offer a great range of petite going out dresses, skirts and playsuits.
Topshop – I’ve often bought many party, occasion, and christmas (night out) dresses here.
