We are delighted to have another informative piece of style advice for petites from Hannah Hughes, foremost fashion editor
There are plenty of tips to help you navigate your way to creating the perfect petite wardrobe, however one of the smartest moves you can make is to invest in a capsule wardrobe of a few key pieces specifically tailored for a petite frame.
Choosing six classic items (that will never date) gives you the framework for a lifetime of outfits. Investing in clothes designed around your smaller proportions means they will always be flattering no matter how the trends change. Think of them as your building block foundations, you can then add current pieces as the trends change from year to year.

A classic matching trouser suit is a must have for every generation of woman. Choose a dark tone (black, navy or grey) and make sure it's cut to perfection for your proportions. Add a crisp shirt for the office or dress it up with a silky evening top. Throw the jacket on over a trusty dress or pair with on trend denim.
