For Spring petite fashion trousers are in for this season, with a wider looser leg. For petites: try not to go too wide, it can shorten your legs and make you look wider and shorter (who wants that?) Go for something that skims the thigh area and flares out at the knee.
Floral prints are BIG this season, and why not? Who wouldn’t want a little color pop in springtime? And the old rules are out which says petites can only wear small prints, go big. It will not overpower our smaller women’s frames, if the cut of the top is right. Go for something a little more close fitting. Or pair a wider top with skinnies to balance out your frame.
Try the Allison Izu Hotel St straight skinnies with a floral top.
Another great fun trend is Geometric prints, which can be a little too much for a petite woman if used in the wrong way. Be aware of the lines the print is drawing on your body. Chevrons or v-shapes are perfect to give the illusion of a slimmer and longer frame. For this trend, I would keep to smaller prints to be safe.
Athletic and Sports details are also big this season. Its easy when you pick pieces with a sport theme, don’t wear your gym clothes out. Choose casual styles that have drawstring details, or laces. A lot of styles are also showing chevon details or casual snaps.
Try Allison izu’s Sunset sweat pant jean for a fun casual look of a sweat pant with the ease and style of chambray jeans.
