Starting a new age bracket can be tough, but the good news is your 40s come along like a comforting sigh of relief. Your childish decisions are behind you, your career and family feel under control, and you're more comfortable in your own skin than you ever have been. What's an amazing way to embrace this?
High street petite clothing brands
Mid-range petite clothing brands
The reality is though, not all brands are doing size-specific collections yet and it takes much more time and effort to shop for clothes that are outside the standard measurements. So, what counts as petite? For all its fast-fashion flaws, the high street really does come up trumps when it comes to shopping for petite clothing. And, as with plus size, online e-tailers such as Asos, Boohoo and Missguided all have an impressive offering of petite styles on site.

With so many shoes being more suited to bare feet, and fewer and fewer women wearing hose or tights, knowing how to wear leggings with a dress helps on the days when you don't want to have completely bare legs. On the face of it, this is easy - simply put on the leggings, toss the dress on over them, and go. You also want to be sure you get the length and style right and don't look silly when you're trying to look sophisticated, however. The basic rule is to keep it simple. If the leggings are a color or pattern you wouldn't wear as tights, then don't wear them. Also, remember this is an inherently modern look. That's not to say that you can't wear leggings with a vintage dress, but you should be aware you will project a mix of styles. You can wear leggings with almost any dress.
