Continuing from a post earlier this month, this is the second petites playbook look I chose for an interview on Nordstrom’s Blog. I was drawn to the soft metallic palette and the flattering silhouette of this A-line skirt. You can pair the jacquard with a black blazer and tights for work, or play it up for holiday festivities. I can’t remember the last time I tried something from Kenneth Cole New York, and certainly didn’t realize they made petite sizing.
The skirt in 0P is actually very fitted on me at the wast (half-elastic waist allows for about an inch or two of stretch), and the length hits at my lower thighs. On someone a little taller, this would be more of an A-lined mini which I can see being cute as well.
Skirt is fully lined with two side pockets and an exposed gunmetal-toned zipper in the back. The measurements of a 0P are 11.5″ across the waist when lying flat, but since the front half of the band is elasticized, the waist stretches to about 13″ across. Length is 16″, and composition is 65% poly, 35% cotton.
The pullover sweater comes in letter sizing, so the size Petite P (equates to 0-2) is a more casual, roomy fit compared to the skirt. Untucked, it’s more like a tunic and hits me at the hips – I plan on wearing it with slim bottoms or even leggings and tall boots. The front has a ranglan sleeve colorblock whereas the back is all the darker color. Measurements of Petite P: 18″ across the armpit, 23″ long, and 16-17″ long sleeves (hard to measure due to the raglan style). 75% pima cotton, 25% modal.
