I’ve been eying the shirt jacket look for over a year now, but they’re always notoriously oversized and overwhelming on a petite frame. I was excited to come across this one which is slightly cropped and very cozy to the touch. The dark grey fleece works well over all-black outfits for a super easy pairing, or with a simple tee and jeans or leggings. The cut of this jacket is very relaxed with plenty of room to layer, but I thought it was fairly petite-friendly (esp. compared to other options I’ve tried) if you’re into the oversized style look!
A few other of my casual finds from Nordstrom lately:
- Vero Moda cable sweater. Nice quality mixed stitch detailing, medium-thick weight and slightly cropped. Has a casually oversized fit and the sleeves are a tad long but overall length is petite-friendly.
- T&B Shrunken fit hoodie. Seemingly basic, but I’d been hunting for a petite-friendly hoodie for layering. I like the washed grey color on this and the non-baggy cut. I sized up to XS on this since it really does have a shrunken fit!
- Zella girls black joggers – I got kids L, which fit like xxs petite.
My Commando leggings are a favorite purchase from last year and continue to add a little edge to my everyday outfits. I have on their 7/8 length in regular sizing, but they also have petite sizing and another style with pockets! XS is a tight fit on me with high rise holding power, and while the length is a little long on me, the hems fold under very easily if you want to shorten it a bit. BP also makes a more affordable pair starting in XXS.
Here is the fleece shirt jacket again over my favorite pair of regular black leggings (petite friendly), a simple white tee, and sneakers for an even more dressed down look.
Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
