Summer date night style in ASOS petites

Statement sleeves have been riding the trend wave for some time now – they’re one of the more wearable trends, in my opinion, and can easily spruce up a plain outfit! This lightweight blouse has a double ruffle at the sleeves and a playful, swingy silhouette that floats when you move. For a summer date or party look, I paired it with this scuba skirt in coordinating colors. For work wear, I’d style it un-tucked over high-waisted pants, but with a camisole layered underneath and tucked in for extra coverage.

Today’s post is in partnership with ASOS, one of my go-to brands for trendier pieces that fit without alterations. Their petites collection runs small compared to most American brands, and I occasionally even prefer their regular sizing, like with this skirt!

I tried this skirt on in both regular and petites, and the regular US 0 is pretty snug on me throughout the elongated-style waist. The petite version, in comparison, is a touch smaller and shorter in length. The skirt is in a medium-weight, unlined scuba fabric and is stretchy with a back zipper. Size US 0 regular measures 11.5″ across the waist when un-stretched, and is 17″ long.

I post about ASOS quite a bit, but here are a few tips if you’ve never shopped there before:

– The brand is UK-based, but offers free shipping on orders over $40 and free returns for many international countries. Returns are quick and easy with an included USPS label and a self-sealing shipping bag. They have a pretty good deal where for $19 a year, you get unlimited 2-day international shipping on all orders (and of course I take advantage of this deal, but be warned – it can be a little too convenient!)

– I make frequent use of the video feature on each item page, where you can see the garments modeled “in action” from a 360 angle. They also use petite models for many of the petite items, which makes a big difference in knowing what to expect with the fit!

– ASOS offers an intense range of sizing, including swimsuits starting at bra sizes 30A to 30I (yes, I), maternity and petite maternity, tall, fuller bust, the list goes on.

I’m usually all about tucking blouses into skirts (to highlight the waistline), but experimented both ways here and the un-tucked look is growing on me! The shorter blouse doesn’t cut into the leg line as much, and the swing shape melds with the skirt to create a continuously flowing A-line. See the photo directly above vs. below – would you do tucked or un-tucked?
