Navy blue poncho for petites + Black jeans

Petite fashion myth: petite women cannot wear ponchos. This “fact” is absolutely false! Petite women can wear any piece they want, it’s all about how you style a piece (and hem lines of course). It is also an added plus that the navy blue side tie poncho is also super warm and cozy.


I chose to pair the poncho with a black striped long sleeve shirt. The shirt is does not come in petite sizes but it does fit very well nonetheless. I am wearing it in a size S. The striped top is very light but when combined with the poncho, you will be very warm on a brisk, fall day.

The black jeans I am wearing are high waisted. I am usually not a fan of bootcut pants. In fact, when I received these in my Trunk Club by my stylist Dana, I was honestly not excited to try these on. What I quickly realized that these high waisted pants made be look two to three inches taller. Since they are cropped, they are perfect to show off your favorite booties.



Speaking of booties, I chose to complete my look with a pair of Jennifer Lopez strappy boots. I chose to purchase them in the color black but they are also available in grey and brown. Do keep in mind that these boots are a bit snug. I am usually a size 6 but I did have to purchase these boots in a size 6.5 in order to wear them comfortably. All and all, this whole look is a lot of fun to wear. If you are planning to go to an wineries or pumpkin or apple picking, this is a look just for the occasion. Pick a weekend to go out to your local farm to have some seasonal fun. Autumn comes and goes so fast. Take time to make the most of it!
