For this Monday, I show you a casual chic outfit wearing a blazer, a pair of jeans and sneakers, in the navy blue and pink shades; two colors that I find, blend well together.
Where to find blazers if you are a Petite?
Because of my small size, I have always had a lot of difficulties to find blazers (and coats). There is always something which is not going : too long, too large shoulders and so on…
There are a lot of petite brands that sell blazers in their collections, but I find that it’s not always very well cut and the quality is not always good neither. A few years ago, I have tested a blazer from Asos Petite and I was disappointed by the cut and the fabric. The blazer was too large, even if I have ordered the smallest size. And the fabric was always wrinkled (which is not conveninent for a blazer, especially when you have a job interview or an important professional meeting).
So I have tested a lot of petite brands and I have two brands to advice you : Top Shop Petite and Banana Republic Petite. Blazers are of very good quality, the finishings are perfect and cuts lovely. At Banana Republic, you will find more “working attire” style pieces of clothe. And, it’s quite expensive, so I advice you to wait for the sales or discounts. I have bought this blazer on sale a few weeks ago at 44€ instead of 159€ (great bargain I have already mentioned on Instagram). Moreover, shipping fees to France are free from 50€ and returns are also free. For your information, by subscribing to the Newsletter, you can get a -15% discount on your order.
A casual chic outfit petite
A casual chic outfit as I like, composed of a blazer, my H&M Mama jeans and my pink Adidas Superstar bought last year.
To break the strict style of the blazer, I wear sneakers and a Princesse Tam Tam lingerie top to bring feminity to the outfit. It’s been a while I was looking for one and it was actually on sale at 50%.
Helmut Paris jewellry
To finish, I wear Helmut Paris earrings. It’s a made in France jewellry brand founded in 2013 by Camille. She creates jewellry with plexiglass which are gorgeous!
Have a lovely week, Xxx.
Fashion advice for petites
I rarely wear V necks but it’s adviced if you are petite because it ligthens the outfit and so, contributes to heighten. And as always, don’t forget to leave your jackets opened!
