Petite gals are always told how vertical stripes are the way to go (for the elongating effect), but I can’t resist chic horizontal stripes! This flattering dress from Banana Republic petites combines both in a comfortable stretchy sweater knit. It comes in a few different colors, and while I love the white, black is a safe bet if you’re looking for something extra slimming and low maintenance.
Fit is true to size with good stretch to it. I paired it with casual mules here, but this can also be work appropriate with a cropped blazer and heels, and when the weather cools I’ll be styling this with a moto jacket! Below are a few other beautiful dresses currently at Banana Republic and available in small sizes (see this post for a fit photo of the black linen one). They’re currently having 40% off right now with no code needed!
Thank you to Banana Republic for partnering on this post.
