Petites Can Pull Off the '70s Trend Too! See How With These Boho Chic Pieces
We're all in when it comes to the '70s trend happening right now, but sometimes the louche silhouettes can overwhelm petite frames. For how to style the pieces, we look no further than Vanessa Hudgens. Even at 5'1", the actress stands tall in this chic all-white '70s-inspired jumpsuit. At first glance, most petites wouldn't think the plunging neckline or flowy bell bottoms work together as a flattering combo, but the beauty of this time period is that nearly anything goes—just be sure to channel the decade's carefree vibes. Check out our roundup of '70s-inspired pieces below, selected specially for petites.
