• Best brands for petites

    Petites united, I know it deep inside my heart you are tired of one size-fits-all clothing, paying a small fortune for tailoring, and of course the mini skirt not exposing enough skin. We live in good times darlings, where the fashion industry had decided to not overlook the low sell-through niche customers such as petite and oversize.

    You’ll find a selection of brands to shop on today’s post, tested first hand to flatter your size and not break your bank account. A general rule, due to demographic variances in population most of these brands are created in Europe, however in the last few years US fashion market has been reformed by brands such as J. Crew and Reformation.

    1. Asos Petite launched the petite niche in 2011 I believe and now retails more that 1000 products. Perfect for in budget options, without sacrificing quality.

    2. Topshop Petite store updates in trends as frequently as your Instagram account. You will find a great selection of mini skirts, knee-length and midi dresses, skirts, coats and all your heart desires.

    3. Karen Millen offers clothing in a different price range but ladies you get what you pay for. I actually swear upon this brand as their clothing fits me like a glove. If plan to visit UK, pay a visit to a Karen Millen store, I was shocked to visit their store in San Fransisco, we talk about nearly double the price in the continent.

    4. Whistles and Ted Baker offer high quality clothing, with similar price-quality behavior to Karen Millen.

    5. Maje is one of my favorite brand at the moment. Launched in 1999, they do French style oh so well. Opt for the sale season as they hit the 50% off, I promise you will feel coutured in a heartbeat. The same rules apply to the 3 below mentioned brands.

    6. The Kooples, Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro Paris

    7. Diesel is my favorite jeans brands,ย  pricey but the fitting and length works wonders on my body type. Made in Italy in 1978, in addition to jeans they offer sunglasses, shoes and perfumes. I can guarantee first-hand their jeans are worth paying for.

    10. J. Crew tailors for petites and unfortunately the brand ships from USA, meaning extra import taxes for us European girls. I love the knits and coats.

    11. Reformation promises in addition to love petites, sustainable and eco-friendly fashion. Curated in USA, freshly out of the over in 2009, Reformation offers the most beautiful selection of summer dresses. See for yourself.

    12. Christy Dawn made in Los Angeles inspired by vintage materials and clothing. What I love most about the brand in addition to style is the usage of dead stock fabrics to reduce environmental footprints. Christy Dawn is pricey but I promise you uniqueness, femininity and quality.

    What are your favorite brands for your body time? I love discovering new brands, in a world overruled by Zara.

      Lovely to see you back on line. I hope you had a great Christmas. I did. The best one in many a year. But too much to tell you here.
      The Russian dumplings you had, I would imagine, were delicious. I love dumplings. I agree with you about brands. I think London is the best place to shop till you drop.
      Hugs, Jo x

      They were delicious and the Party was just as good! We were playing games until 23pm:)
      Glad you had fun Jo, you deserve it.
      I am not actually completely in line, I want to Change the layout of the blog, not completely satisfied with this one. I couldn’t manage during the Holidays as we were cut out of Internet, since Friday! The Horror! No actually it felt revitalizing without interenet connection:)
      Hugs, Tatjana

      Thanks for sharing these, I really appreciate it. Even though I am not considered petite, but my legs are super short, and always need to hem my pants. I will have to try Diesel jeans. Hope you have a great day!!! xo, Emily

      Heyhey, hast du denn schonmal bei Reformation bestellt? Ich liebe den onlineshop, finde aus den USA bestellen aber immer so umstรคndlich, musste auch schonmal zum Zoll, was super nervig ist. Wie hast du das gemacht?

        For the exact same reasons I haven’t ordered but I am considering they wrap dresses. They usually are easy to adjust, regarding the size.
        I usually buy in USA when friends travel there. The Zoll and import taxes are very unattractive, I know.
        A friend of mine ordered recently and they asked for 28 Euro to simply open the package. Unacceptable!
