Styling the petite cropped trouser

Finding the right fit for petite trousers can be difficult at the best of times, let alone 'cropped' petite trousers. If you get the wrong fit they can drown you and make you look even shorter, and none of us want that do we?! 

The cropped trouser is here to stay and it can add so much versatility to your wardrobe. Keep it casual with a tee or dress them up for a night on the town. I've opted for somewhere in between for this look, perfect for meeting friends for coffee or a lunch date, great for a day in the office too perhaps?

This floral yellow blouse with fluted sleeves is super pretty and comfy to wear. It's actually from Primark and you can find it here. It's very sheer so you'll need a nude coloured bra or maybe a vest type top with thin straps underneath, personally I just go for the bra, you can see it slightly when you get up close and personal but that doesn't bother me.

These trousers are from Dorothy Perkins but I can't see them online to link to. There's some similar here but without the tie detailing.

The cropped trouser can instantly make you look slimmer with the eye drawn to the ankles. Cropped are great to show off fabulous shoes and there are so many different styles. I prefer the straighter leg style which are loosely fitted then taper slightly to the ankle. I have some similar ones in burgundy  (here) that I wore to London Fashion Weekend.

You really do have to be careful though if you are petite. Shop around to find the perfect style to suit your body shape as with the shorter hem if you're not careful some will make your legs look even shorter. Also, try and wear a shoe that shows the top of your foot to elongate the legs a little more.

I'm a short arse 5 foot 2 but I think these work for me!

  2. I love this outfit! Cropped trousers are one of my favourite styles. I bought a pink pair from Dorothy Perkins the other day and I can't get enough of them. I love the belt on these!
