Don’t get me wrong, I’m not particularly petite- or at least I only just make the cut. I stand at a pretty average 5”5, but there’s something about the cut and shape of petite trousers that I always find incredibly flattering- especially as I have pretty tiny legs (if anyone can rectify this, I’d be most grateful). This probably explains my love for this tapered paisley pair all the way from New Look’s brand new petite collection. Paired with a new black camisole from Zara (look at me go), two of my favourite charm necklaces and my trusty partner in crime (a.k.a black fedora) I’d bet that nobody would guess these trousers cost me less than twenty pounds.
At such an incredibly price point (yes, most of the collection comes under £20 a piece) there’s the option to experiment a little, pick up some staple pieces (they have boyfriend jeans, over sized plain t’s and little black dresses) and update your wardrobe easily without breaking the bank (plus with festival and holiday season coming around- is there any real reason not to?) Plus, unlike a lot of high street giants- this petite collection has variety, and lots of it (need a new floral playsuit? Crochet shorts? They got this, guys)- and you know what, I love it.
