Never thought I’d say this about something trend-forward like a leather skirt, but this is one confidence-boosting piece I wouldn’t mind in multiple colors – and most of the online reviewers agree! Check the customer photos on Express for this vegan leather skirt in brown, which looks beautiful and is also available in both petites and regular sizing.
As mentioned in this earlier blog post (with one of my most-saved outfits this year!), this would be chic for offices with a more lax or creative dress codes or for a night out on the town. It features a flattering higher waistline, figure skimming fit, and a true tapered pencil shape that hits right below my knees – my favorite, visually elongating hem length for skirts like this. The leather has a nice matte, very lightly pebbled finish to it and slight stretch. 00 petite measures 12″ across the waist, 16″ across the hips, and 22″ in length.
Here are a few other petite-friendly pieces from Express I’ve tried on and would recommend!
- Belted sheath dress – Excellent value for a sharp work piece, especially when on sale. Material is lighter in weight and unlined, but the silhouette and stretch is very flattering and XXS is a perfect fit on me. The slim belt and the placement of the slit are small touches that help this simple dress stand out a bit.
- High waist plaid pencil skirt – See this on me (work outfit #5). My usual size is a figure hugging, stretchy fit and it has a tweed-like look from afar without the thickness of tweed.
- Mid rise wide leg trousers – 00 Short fits me with 3″ heels. This is a classic, flatteringly-cut pant in a fabric that feels fairly wrinkle resistant. Note petite ladies similar to me in heigh will need heels even with the Short inseam.
