I posted about this scalloped-hem lace tee a while back and absolutely love it! It pairs easily with slacks as shown above or slim ankle pants for work, and also can be dressed down with distressed denim as shown below. I’ve been finding endless ways to remix it with old pieces in my closet. In the look above, I wanted to visually continue the wider hem with flowy trousers – the floor-grazing length as well as a shrunken-fit blazer helps keep this look lengthening versus frumpy for petite ladies.

I’m wearing size xxs petite in this lace tee and it’s a “swing” style fit. I’m glad I tried this top on in-person because I wrongly assumed it’d be lined. You can wear any neutral camisole underneath as an easy fix, but I saw a mannequin wearing one in the same exact lilac color and fell in love with the look. I always have uses for under-tanks so picked up their Clean Cami (available in 24 colors!) which is a comfortable blend of 93% cotton/ 7% spandex. It’s only available in regular sizing, which I thought fit well given the adjustable shoulder straps (I’m wearing XS and it starts in XXS). Just checked the reviews online, and you can’t go wrong with nearly 1,300 5-star reviews from customers!

    Hi Jean,
    it just looks amazing on you.
    I'm 5.5", do you think I need to go with petit or regular size?
