To all my fellow petite ladies, this one goes out to you. The holidays are just around the corner, and with it, comes this dreaded realization: We need more petite-friendly dressing! Long gone are the days of getting our clothes tailored or browsing dangerously close to the kid's section (I see you), because now we're exhausted. Now it's the tail end of 2016, and we're so over buying clothes that just don't fit us properly. This holiday season, let's not settle for wearing "cropped trousers" as regular-length trousers. Let's not show up to the party in what's supposed to be an oversize sweater but on us, a king-sized sweater dress. Because now—and I need you to say this with me—we have petite-friendly holiday dressing! From a metallic jumpsuit (yes, jumpsuit) to luxe cropped trousers, we've pieced together three perfect holiday looks for you.
1. Grand Silhouette
Command attention in this luxe wide-leg jumpsuit with geometric cut-outs. For added leg-lengthening magic, slip into a pair of gem-encrusted platforms.
Shop the look: Topshop jumpsuit, $130; topshop.com. River Island coat, $140; riverisland.com. Nadri cuff, $100; nordstrom.com. Clare V. bag, $295; revolve.com. Nine West pumps, $90 (originally $119); ninewest.com.
2. LUXE TEXTURES
Go glam with a plush velvet top and cropped satin trousers. Add on a pair of seriously chic pumps featuring major cut-outs for the illusion of added height, and then finish with statement accessories.
3. Modified LBD
Get your LBD holiday-ready by layering a glitter turtleneck underneath. A pair of flirty lace-up heels adds instant femme to an otherwise normcore silhouette.
