Ah, trends. You either love or you hate them, right? As a petite woman (it feels weird calling myself a woman for some reason??) it can be hard to wear some trends because they just do NOT suit my body type. But I have some great spring trends this season for petite women! I have found a few trends that I like solely because of the fact that they fit my body in the way clothes should fit in the first place!
I didn’t realize it until recently but there are some definite trends that work perfectly for a petite girl. For example crop tops and “ankle jeans” – both of which I have become a big fan of! And not because I can wear jeans that stop at my ankle but rather, ankle jeans just fit me like regular jeans! And cropped tops? Stop at the perfect place on my hips (unless they are really, really short).
As someone who is only 4’9″, it is definitely a struggle to find clothes that fit me without having to go to a tailor. But that’s when I just have to make the trends work for me. And it’s not because I consider myself a particularly trendy person. It is just nice to have clothes that fit for once!
I am pretty sure this top was meant to be a flowy crop top for someone but for me, it fits perfectly! A lot of the times tops on me are just way. too. long. (even the cami I’m wearing underneath had to be tucked in because it was so long!) so I was really happy to find this super cute top for spring fit me so wonderfully! Plus it is a nice chiffon material so very breezy and comfortable.
My jeans are (sadly) not thrifted. My one vice when it comes to shopping retail is petite sections and shoes. These jeans are from LOFT, which has a great petite section! So I think they are supposed to be “ankle” fit but they fit me like a glove! I love the little detail on the hem. I never thought I could partake in that trend because all of my pants need to be hemmed or rolled up to fit!
Also – how cute is this ruffle detail on this top?? I can’t get over it! Another petite styling trick for the ruffle trend – find smaller ruffles! Big ones just look soooo silly on me but this little ruffle on the top is the perfect proportion for my frame!
