Every year when summer comes and I start to think about what pieces I want to add to my wardrobe; I end up obsessing over jumpsuits and maxi dresses. However, when you’re 5ft3 it can be very difficult to find one that doesn’t drown you! With that in mind; I’ve made it my mission this summer to find a petite jumpsuit I can pull out of my wardrobe for any occasion and can be dressed up or down. So I’ve compiled a list of some of the best places to track down petite jumpsuits.
- Very – This online retailer not only houses so many great brands, it also has it’s own fashion range with some killer pieces. It wasn’t that long ago I discovered Very had a petite range but, now I know it exists, my online shopping basket is constantly growing! From strapless to wide leg, there’s a jumpsuit to suit everyone; my fave is this navy floral cold shoulder jumpsuit as it nails 3 current trends with one piece.
- M&Co – From the moment I walked into the Petersfield branch and spotted this navy tropical jumpsuit I was in love! So when I noticed it was actually part of the petite collection I couldn’t have been happier. What’s more, it goes up to a size 18 meaning I could actually get one that fits – they didn’t have one in store so I placed my order the minute I got home. Fingers crossed it looks as nice on as it did on the hanger as I’m no mannequin.
- Fenn Wright Manson – Okay, so this brand may be at the more expensive end of the high street, but their garments are timeless with a nod to fashion and oozes luxury. This v neck floral culotte jumpsuit caught my eye from day one of the collection launch – it’s definitely an investment piece but one that will pay off. Now in the sale; it’s sure to sell out quickly.
- Gap – I have to admit, as an ex-employee I’m a little biased when it comes to Gap, but I genuinely get repeated wear from the garments I buy there. I’ve heard lots of people say that Gap only have ‘very thin, very tall’ women in mind when they’re designing their collectio. That really isn’t the case as they have a petite range and stock up to a size 24. I’m loving this navy wrap front jumpsuit which I know will last me an absolute lifetime.
