Ok, so where are all my other petite girls at? Being 5’2″ definitely has its perks…things like legroom is never really an issue for me. And if you date the right guy, heel height is not an issue either (luckily for me, the husband is 6’4″…hello 4 inch heels!). But when it comes to reaching things in high places and shopping for clothes, let the panic set in. It seems that us petite gals always get the short end of the stick when it comes to shopping.
If you’re anything like me, then dresses and skirts tend to be too long, pants bunch at the ankles, and even some shirts will be WAY too long to even do a cute tuck.
Thankfully I’ve found that some brands have really stepped it up and now offer “short” or “petite” options on many of their items. To make things easier for y’all, I’ve rounded up my top 10 sites to shop from!
This is your one-stop shop for petite-friendly picks from all your favorite brands. Even better, they always offer free shipping and returns! FYI – Nordstrom is also having their Half Yearly Sale right now!
Yes, they now carry “short” lengths for those on-trend denim looks you love. Plus, they offer a “petite” option in their dresses and jumpsuits. I’ve been buying soo much from A&F lately and love that I have the option to buy something without thinking about getting it hemmed! FYI – for a limited time, 50% off throughout the store!
I buy almost all of my jeans from AE, so it’s great that I have the option to buy “short” jeggings and jeans! This means that I don’t always have to cuff my jeans when I wear them. FYI – for a limited time, online only, everything is 25-60% off!
Madewell finally carries petites! J.Crew’s sister brand is ideal for on-trend pieces and basics alike. Although Madewell’s focus is to provide women (and now men!) with great jeans, you’ll also find essentials like tees, blouses, and bags to wear with them.
No more tailoring your entire wardrobe. Loft carries both professional and casual pieces that fit and flatter right off the rack. Whether it’s workday or weekend wear, filling your closet with confidence-boosting clothing makes getting dressed a breeze. I actually love the Loft and it’s my go-to for both work and everyday wear!
Best for separates that will last from season to season. I get sooo many of my work clothes from here and can wear them year round. They also always have some kind of sale going on!
Tired of hemming your pants and jeans? Ann Taylor’s got you covered. For modern essentials with a sophisticated and feminine spin, look no further.
Best for affordable denim that actually fits—no more shopping in the kid’s section. Classic, casual style, and wardrobe basics are GAP’s specialty. Think jeans, t-shirts, LBD’s, and more. They’re also big on sales, so you’re practically guaranteed to get a good deal no matter what.
Best for all the boho dresses and jumpsuits your heart could desire. Anthro specializes in relaxed, breathable fabrics so comfortable you can wear them to dinner and lounge in them later.
Best for wardrobe essentials that don’t break the bank. Wear anything from the site and you’ll receive compliments all day, even though you probably spent less than $20.
Be sure to check out some of these sites this weekend as they will all have a Memorial Day sale going on!
