From today through Sunday 9/24, take 20% off almost everything at Abercrombie with code AFLTK. Their revival since the moose logo days have been one of the best things to happen to my wardrobe. So hard to find inseams in “extra short” otherwise, or petite pieces that don’t run big! Wanted to round up a few items I own or have tried on that are still stocked and part of the sale:
Blazer Mini Dress (petite, regular and tall sizing)
My love for blazer dresses continue, and this is a great petite-friendly option in an updated cut. I love how the style is an easy and chic option for dinner, date or girls night, when you don’t want to put a lot of thought into what to wear.
The cut on this one is a little more relaxed and straighter through the torso, which I would even wear un-belted since the cut is balanced by the shorter length. Here’s how it looks belted vs unbelted, and with heels vs sneakers. I’m wearing the light grey, and it also comes in a dark grey and black.
These are still one of the best fitting trousers for petites, with no waist gap on me and lengths ranging from extra short to tall. I love the elevated crepe version, and they’re now also available in a new lightweight fabric (I fit 24 short best in the lightweight style).
I reviewed this earlier this summer and it’s still in stock with many good reviews! The colors available are beautiful options for a Fall wedding or special event. The size xxs petite I got measures 24” at the waist, and stretches up to 25” max due to a subtle elastic back waistband (and side zipper entry). The matching top is also fitted on me in xxs, with a partial zipper in the back and adjustable straps.
These are one of my favorite cut sweatshirts for the effortlessly relaxed cut and slightly cropped length that’s great for petites. The shorts were a little more snug at the waist than I expected, but they’re stretchy so I kept this size. Size xxs shorts measure 23.5” at the waist when lying flat, and have stretch.
You can read my full comparison of the two styles in this blog post. In this comparison pic, styles # 1 and # 2 look pretty similar, but the main differences lie in the lengths and fabric. The 90’s jeans are full-length style in thicker, more rigid vintage-y denim, while the ankle jeans are a cropped length jean in thinner denim. The latter ankle style is definitely my most worn style!
’90s Straight Jeans size 24 Extra Short measures: 12.25“ across waist, 11“rise, 25.5“ inseam.
Ankle Straight Jeans size 24 Short is 12.25“ across the waist, 11“rise, 24.5“ inseam.
Collarless Tweed Jacket (3 colors)
Now also in navy (saw it in person and am VERY tempted) and cream. One of the best pieces from the brand this year! Great quality with a cute modern cropped boxier cut and shoulder pads. I wear it with the sleeves folded under about an inch and they stay in place without issue. The shorter torso length is fantastic for petites in the size xxs and really hard to find elsewhere.
Lastly, going back to the blazer dress, I wanted to show it looks unbelted with heels vs sneakers:
