Once fall hits, lengths start getting longer, layers start piling on, and petite women start getting frustrated with their options. While most stores ignore the needs of ladies in search of better fitting proportions, Nordstrom remains dedicated to curating the most covetable brands and styles with the petite woman in mind. This fall is no exception as they present petite fashionistas with the latest trends all proportionally designed for smaller frames.
As any petite woman knows, it’s not as simple as just getting something hemmed. Those easy dresses that average-framed females can just throw on with fall tights? Not so easy for a petite girl if those seams aren’t hitting correctly at the shoulders, as they do with petite styles. Purchasing petite allows you to save those costly alteration bucks for something more fun—like another dress.
From petite-sized jeans and coated denim with proportional rises and inseams that hit accordingly, to the always swoon-worthy jumpsuit with a proportionally placed waist, petite women do not have to go further than Nordstrom’s petite department for a complete and on-trend fall closet. This fashion leader is proving that even fall’s trickiest looks (like the oversized coat) can be petite-friendly—just choose styles designed for smaller frames with petite appropriate proportion from designers such as Vince Camuto or Eileen Fisher.
Now if only they were able to throw in some extra closet space with these trends—then you’d really be set.
