Don’t settle for awkward fits or another trip to the tailor. Find petite clothes for the upcoming season at Macy’s instead. We offer petite sweaters, petite jeans, petite suits and more, all designed for women 5'4" and under.
Finding petite-friendly clothes for cold weather can be even more of a challenge because of the extra fabric involved (along with its added weight and bulkiness). But we’ve got a few tips on how to find sweaters for petite women, plus some fresh ideas about how to style them, all compiled for you below.
Why Buy Petite?
Sometimes petite women buy straight-size clothing out of convenience, but it’s not very convenient in the long run.
Regular-sized women’s items can engulf petite frames in fabric, creating extra inches all over, not just at the hem of their dress or pants. This leads to slightly sloppy outfits or costly alterations. No thanks!
A petite blazer is sized perfectly for a smaller stature, with shorter sleeves, a higher hem and a narrower fit through the shoulders than a regular-size women’s blazer.
Stylish Next Steps
Now that we’ve convinced you, let’s move on to petite knitwear.
Macy’s array of petite sweaters runs the gamut from petite cardigans perfect for layering in transitional weather to petite turtleneck sweaters ideal for the coldest of temperatures.
For a polished casual ensemble, top off your jeans with a petite cashmere sweater. (Side note: cashmere sweaters are extremely warm as well as luxurious.) Complete the look with a petite puffer coat, preferably one that’s got either a belt or some shape to it.
A petite sweater dress can be a lifesaver when it comes to dressing for the workweek. Simply pair it with booties or pumps and you’re ready to go.
