If you ask us, the biggest asset to a petite woman’s closet is a trusty tailor. But after that, there shouldn’t be too many hard-and-fast rules as to what anyone 5’4” and under can wear. The eight celebrities ahead certainly don’t abide by any.
We looked to them—some of our favorite and the most high-profile petite style stars—to figure out which trends they love and don’t shy away from in spite of their smaller statures. What we found is that some, like the Olsen twins and Kourtney Kardashian, love a long silhouette that might understandably intimidate anyone who’s petite. (Here’s where that tailor comes in handy.) While others, such as Mindy Kaling and Emma Roberts, favor pieces that covertly help elongate their shapes.
No matter which approach you relate to more, peruse all eight trends below that come with a celebrity stamp of approval and no height requirements.
