Hi Petites!

Bright colors, sporty dresses, and leather. These are just a few of the current trends for Spring. Need some advice on how to wear them without going overboard? Here’s a breakdown for you with some petite friendly options. Enjoy!

Spring 2013 Trends
  • Bright Colors

Bright colors are everywhere right now. Even if you’re not a huge fan of bright colors or don’t feel like you can pull it off, try adding a bright color to your outfit through an accessory to give your outfit that bright pop of color without overdoing it.

  • Sporty Dresses

Sporty dresses are great. They’re fun and flirty but comfortable and versatile. Dress them up with a sexy heel or dress them down with a pair of fun flats or sandals.

  • Fold Over Clutches

The first time I saw a fold over clutch this season was on petite celebrity, Victoria Beckham. I love the idea, I’m just not sold on how comfortable it is to carry a clutch around all day. What do you think of fold over clutches for the day?

  • Black and White

Black and white: so classic, but so trendy this season. Try color blocking with black on the bottom, white on top and add a pop of color with a statement necklace, bracelet, or watch.

  • Leather

Leather for Spring? Might sound strange but trust me it’s out there! Try a cute leather peplum tank or go with something more subtle by wearing a piece with small leather accents like these options below.
