3 Ways to Style a Trench when Petite






Photos by the lovely Katherine Holmes

...
Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas.
Did it snow by you?
I was really dreaming of a white Christmas but hey that's okay :)
Can you believe it was 54 degrees yesterday!! 
Gahhh crazzzyyy.

Being petite can be difficult to find things that fit right off the rack.
From shirts to jeans the struggle is too real.
My love for trench style vests runs real deep.
I have all different styles:
Dressy, casual, sporty, classic, leather & lace.
I also love that I really do rock them even being petite. 

The 3 pieces of advice I have for pulling trench vest off is:
1. The trench should hit no more than 2 inches above your knee.
2. No more than 3 below your knee.
3. Also wear heels because you know that never hurts!
If it's a little longer take it to a tailor or hem yourself.
Making sure you create a long sleek line makes you appear taller.
Not that I wan't to be taller but man being over 5'0 feet would be nice!

The best thing about these trench vests is have fun with them.
I love this one in particular because of the faux fur.
Snagged this beauty a few years back at Bloomingdales 
and so happy I kept it after all these years!

...

So tell me do you own a trench style vest.
