Petite Skirts

    Do your “mini” skirts fall to the knee? Your maxis drag the ground? Well, we’ve got a solution for that! At Macy’s, you’ll find petite skirts perfectly sized for the 5'4" and under frame, from a petite midi skirt that hits just right to a denim skirt that’s a staple in any casual collection. Yes, even petite maxi skirts with elegant flow.

    How to Style Women’s Petite Skirts
    If you want to visually elongate your frame, make sure to define your waist. To do this, your skirt’s waistband should hit around the belly button, and your top should be tucked in. Peplum tops also help accent the waist with a little flounce. Midi skirts can be tricky for petites, but picking a length just below the knee will keep you from drowning in fabric. Add the right T-shirt and you’re ready to go anywhere. On warmer days, a cute cropped top balances the length of a midi or maxi skirt. For cooler weather, add a cardigan – belted, of course, to highlight your waist. Even ankle boots are in play for petite frames. Make sure they’re the same color as your skirt to create a smooth, continuous line. The same goes for tights and hosiery.

    Fashion Tips for Petite Skirts
    Mixing fits is a great way to add some interest to a look. If you’re wearing a relaxed sweater, pair it with a petite pencil skirt. Conversely, a petite pleated skirt looks fantastic with a close-fitting blouse. Where the hem hits is key to styling a petite skirt. In the best-fitting petite maxi skirt, the hem should stop an inch above the floor. And of course, high heels are a great equalizer. We recommend sleek, strappy looks to help with a lengthening effect. 

    The Petite Skirt Goes to The Office
    Unless you plan on spending a lot on alterations, shopping the petite department for business attire is essential. That’s because petite clothing isn’t just shorter versions of regular sizing. The entire garment is more proportional, with higher waists and right-size pockets. Petite casual wear rules apply at the office, too: slim-fitting tops tucked in to accent your waist or an easier blouse paired with a slim-fitting petite skirt. Make sure your blazer hits around the top of the hips.

    From polished professional looks to weekend-ready casual ensembles, Macy’s has the perfect petite skirt for you.
