I’m 5’1″, and These Are the Best Petite Autumn Picks I’ve Found

As a petite woman, I often dread dressing for the cooler months. More layers usually equate to more trips to the tailor, as there’s always another billowing sleeve take up or trouser leg to hem. (Of course, I’ve discovered many a DIY hack in my time and can’t tell you how useful iron-on hemming tape can be when you’re in a bit of a rush.)

However, this autumn, I’m attempting to keep my alterations to a minimum and instead invest in clothes that actually fit to begin with. As more and more petite-specific options become available, it’s easier to find items that not only fit my stature but also genuinely adhere to my personal style. Gone are the days of petite options being relegated to a small selection of jeans styles at Topshop. Now, plenty of brands exist that are catering to women under 5’4″.

Whether you’re after work-appropriate styles such as the items that can be found at J.Crew and Boden or the perfect dress for a special occasion (may I turn your attention to Reformation, Reve the Label or The Shortlist?), there are several great autumn options around in petite-specific sizes. I’ve even found a trenchcoat that won’t skim the floor. Keep scrolling for my complete autumn shopping guide including dresses, skirts, trousers, and jackets.
