When it comes to fashion, Spring is just the best.
The best colors. The best styles. And this season, the best textures.
However, we need to be super savvy about our tweed additions. Anytime Petites experiment with thicker, heavier fabrics, we risk looking wider and shorter.
Then, there’s the frumpy factor.
I mean, we all love the Queen. But unless we’re in our 90s, we don’t necessarily want to dress like her.
The good news… this season’s thinner materials and edgier styles make our job so much easier.
Some things to look for…
- Avoid midi-length skirts. Instead, choose an above-the-knee length.
- Look for cropped, tailored jackets. Stay away from boxy, oversized cuts.
- Dresses with super clean lines are best.
I gathered a few styles together for inspiration. Ready to jump in???
Just Want To Dip Your Toe In The Spring Tweed Trend?
Choose a tweed accessory, like a hat or shoes. And like everything else tweed this season, there are plenty to choose from.
Kitten heels? Yes, please.
A Jacket Is A Smart & Easy Choice.
For Petites, it’s all about shape. Choose one that is cropped and not too boxy.
A Skirt Of Course, Of Course.
Godet-style skirts (like the one below) are a clever choice when wanting to balance out strong shoulders or a voluptuous bust.
Timeless Dress Options.
A sheath dress is a classic oh-so-flattering choice.
Love this one’s 60s vibe. Paired with boots and it’ll be bonkers! A true show stopper.
The Peter Pan collar and gently poof sleeves makes this a sweet charming choice.
If you want to do the unexpected, check out this babydoll number. (BTW, you’ll really love it if you like to camouflage a pesky middle section.)
Want A Bit Of Unexpected Fun?
Try shorts. The ones below are gorgeous! They’re a literal rainbow of pastel colors – opening up a ton of mixing and matching options.
A coordinated suit. I can’t think of a more brilliant brunch ensemble.
A sleeveless vest – cute with jeans, the matching skort, or a pencil skirt for the office.
And For The Pant Lovers…
These are so bright and cheerful. The tailored flat front design is flattering and won’t add any bulk to the hip area. However, the inseam is 35″, so if you decide to add-to-cart, be prepared to take them to the tailor. If that sounds like a drag, they also offer this pattern in a jacket dress and skirt.
Put A Bow On It – aka A Quick Recap
Things to keep in mind when adding this spring fashion trend to your wardrobe:
- Avoid boxy jackets
- Try wearing the same pattern from head to toe to give you the illusion of length
- Not sure about tweed? Add an accessory to your assortment for an inexpensive closet update.
And most of all, have fun with this cheerful Spring trend.
‘Til next week.
Hugs & happy shopping.
