Petite friendly​ summer trends 2019



When it comes to fashion trends, they can be overwhelming. If you are petite, it can feel like anything that is trendy cannot be worn. Thankfully, there are plenty of petite-friendly summer trends that you can rock with ease.

Puff sleeve tops

A summer trend that is going no where fast! These tops can create a flattering silhouette for petite frames. Choose a pair of high-waisted pants to help elongate your frame with ease.

Hair barrettes & headbands

Being petite has its perks! Our smaller frame in our faces allows us to wear headbands and hair barrettes with ease. These pieces are on trend and available under $20. This is a petite friendly summer trend that is universal for all shapes and sizes (plus does not break the bank).

Wrap dresses

A timeless look that never goes out of style! Wrap dresses help frame our petite frames without swallowing us in too much fabric. Opt for s sheath wrapped dress for an extra touch of elegance!


Much like rompers, jumpsuits are a chic way to look stylish without feeling like you are being swallowed by too much fabric. My recommendation is to stick with smaller floral prints, polka dots or a solid color. If you want to make yourself look even taller, opt for a jumpsuit with vertical stripes. Yet another petite friendly summer trend that is easy to put together!
