The life of a petite: when finding clothes that fit is a miracle, when you consider your tailor to be your sartorial savior, when fashion-y trends just look plain ridiculous on you (oversize on others—Vetements-cool; oversize on you—child playing dress up). And when work wear is all about the fit and impeccable tailoring, it can all seem rather hopeless.
Luckily, Express, mass retailer and the purveyor of 9-to-5 basics, has blessed all height-challenged women with a solution: a petite-friendly selection of merch that work for the office, an evening out, and off-duty days. You know what that means? No more excessively slouchy shirts, too-long sleeves, laughably long hems, and waistbands that reach to your chest.
Designed to fit and flatter frames at 5'4 and under, Express's new petite section is available exclusively online at express.com (and better yet—all shipping and returns are free). Scroll through to shop our favorites from the petite section.
