Simplicity is key in an outfit like this. Knit is both fashion-forward and comfortable which makes it a great choice for everyday outfits. What I love about this AllSaints top is its shape and material, which is flattering with its modest neckline, tight fit at the bust and a loose fit at the natural waist. This top is great for petite women because its length is cropped so it goes great with high-waisted jeans like these Topshop petite high-waisted jeans.
After I discovered my first pair of well-fitting, high-waisted jeans, I never went back to low-rise pants again. These Topshop jeans were my first pair and have been my go-to pair of distressed denim ever since. Distressed denim is one of my favorite styles and is an easy way to make an outfit more edgy. I cannot stress enough how essential I think high-waisted bottoms are in a petite woman's wardrobe because it elongates the leg, allowing us "fun-sized" women to appear taller than we actually are, which is always a plus. The skinny fit of these jeans is slimming and pairs great with heels, like those pictured in this post.
These Zara heels are actually a thrift-store find from a local thrift store in San Diego called Flashbacks. Typically, I don't shop at thrift stores but a rare occurrence brought me to these fun, studded heels that were on sale for $18 so i couldn't resist. Pointed-toe heels are great for dressing up an outfit and the studs make the outfit more edgy. Although I practically live in booties and sandals, it's always fun getting dressed up and wearing heels as detailed as these, regardless of the minimal amount of space there is for your toes.
