Celebrities Under 5'4" Love These Petite-Friendly Trends

Celebrities Under 5'4" Love These Petite-Friendly Trends

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.

I'm 5'2", and These Are the Fashion Items I Couldn't Live Without

I'm 5'2", and These Are the Fashion Items I Couldn't Live Without

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it: It’s one of my favorite sayings in life and in fashion. You’ll catch me going to the same three restaurants all the time, my middle part has stayed the same for about 10 years, there’s one nail color I get on repeat, and then there’s the way I dress… What can I say: I’m a creature of habit, and while sometimes it has its downsides (you can read about that here), other times it has its pluses.

One example is the topic of today’s post. Once I found that there are certain pieces that worked rather well on my petite frame, I stuck with them, and it’s made both dressing in a way that flatters my figure rather easy over the years. In fact, I’m proud to say that people are often surprised when they find out that I’m only 5’2”Read the rest

I Designed a Petite Clothing Line—Here Are 5 Shopping Tips for Gals Under 5'4"

It’s safe to say we’ve hit peak momentum of influencer collaborations. New announcements seem to flood into our Instagram feeds every other day, and the collections have become somewhat predictable: Influencer teams up with a major retailer, creates clothing that’s inspired by their own style, sells out within a day, and repeats itself. It’s a new profitable outlet, one in which influencers are aware of their followers’ loyalty and willingness to spend the dough.

Coscarelli is wise to the fact that a name does not always a good collaboration make.
