I love playing with textures when the weather cools – I’ve been looking for pieces in different Fall materials that will also look cute paired with tights! I have some items from Soprano that run small, so was happy to discover that this cognac faux leather skirt is also petite-friendly. It’s juniors sizing so runs a little smaller than womens ~ an XS fits like a 00, and measures 12″ across the waist, 16″ across the hips, and about 15″ – 16″ in front length. It has an invisible side zipper and a little stretch to the fabric. I styled it here with bare legs and neutral shoes, but it’s also flattering with black tights and black booties! This same brand also makes a faux suede ruffle skirt in a beautiful terracotta hue.
This Halogen sweater from Nordstrom features one of my favorite, feminine trends that is still going strong – sleeve detailing! As with most tops that have tie sleeves, you’ll need to tie the bows tightly so that they stay securely in place. This sweater is true-to-size and lighter in weight, so is well-suited for tucking into bottoms. Halogen also makes several other Fall knits in both petites and regular, in a whole rainbow of colors! This cozy wool / cashmere tunic sweater (on sale) is the perfect length for wearing with leggings and covers the crotch without being too long. I also own this soft 100% cashmere pullover, which comes in a v-neck as well. I took my usual size XXS petite (see it on me here and here), but one size up didn’t look bad either for a slouchier fit!
My cousin packed these Sole Society Lyriq booties for our family getaway in scenic New Hampshire, during which we both wasted no time in swapping some pieces! These are a size 5 and feel true-to-size, ending at the top of my ankles for a surprisingly flattering cutoff point. She mentioned the material took some breaking in initially but are comfortable after a few wears considering the height of the heel.
Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
