I am starting a new type of post that will appear every month: my Petite Pick. It's a showcase of a recent (or not so recent) outfit I have purchased that really highlights a petite figure in a flattering way.
This month's pick is the AE Classic Cardigan in bell navy (now in clearance for $19.95), a blue floral babydoll tank from Hollister, the AE Slim Boot jean in deep indigo and the AE Cable Knit Clog in grey (also only $19.95).
Cardigans are very flattering for petites because they don't drown you and hit above the waist for a torso-lengthening look. Also, they are great to throw on before class or even a night out on the town, and can be easily dressed up or down.
The babydoll style tank is perfect, because it is dressy enough so you look put-together for day time but isn't too elegant. The style is also great, because it enhances smaller bustlines. And the floral pattern is big enough to draw attention to your small figure but not overwhelm it.
The slim boot cut jeans are just right; they don't tend to drag on the floor like regular flares do and the dark wash is dressy and makes you look long and lean.
Finally, the clogs are a simple but cute go-to option when you will be on your feet all day and don't want to risk breaking a heel. For a date, try some nice looking neutral heels.
Try making your own outfit for a look that really makes your amazing frame pop!
