I'm 4'11", and I embrace my height. The only tricky part about being petite is finding fashionable clothes that fit well. I am here to help petite women like me with this guide to the best petite fashion!

Topshop Petite

Topshop has an amazing petite section. The clothes are very fashionable and fit me perfectly. What I love about this department is that the clothes are the same as the regular department, just sized down. New pieces from basics to going-out outfits come in very frequently!

Urban Outfitters

I can easily say that half of my wardrobe is from Urban Outfitters. Although Urban Outfitters does not have a specific "petite" brand, the XS clothing fits perfectly for petite women. From tanks to jeans to dresses, I am always a size XS. I love Urban Outfitters because their clothes are always trendy and cute, but also fit me well!

Princess Polly

Let me put y'all on my absolute favorite clothing site that works well for petites: Princess Polly. This website is full of amazing clothes (at decently low prices as well)! I am always a size 0 in their clothes. Every piece I have bought from this website is my absolute favorite. Although online shopping may be tricky for some, you must check this website out and try a piece of clothing!! It is great for all sizes, but I love it so much since it fits me so well :)


Finally, my last go-to store for petite pieces is Aritzia. Once again, this store is great for all sizes, but many of their pieces come in a size XXS, which is perfect for us petites! Aritzia can be on the pricey side, but they have great staple items such as a sleek blazer or a nice pair of gray sweatpants. Their items are also very great quality and will last a long time! I love their XXS and XS clothing!
