We can all thank 2018 for bringing some sparkle and coziness to our wardrobes. But what does 2019 have in store? What trends in particular should Petites watch out for? Petite AMIE editors did their own research on the looks that will inevitably rule 2019 AND flatter our petite frames.

BOLD SHOULDERS

Yes, big shoulders are officially back. But this time we have the luxury of having a myriad of different ways to style them: balance with skinny trousers or contrast with flowy feminine dresses. Both will work wonders on Petites, structuring and elongating the frame.

INTRICATE PLEATS

Pleats game is getting more sophisticated by the year. We expect 2019 to introduce a whole new level of micro pleats for maximum effect. Knife and elite pleats render Petites’ silhouettes fluid and elegant.

HIGH PAPER BAG

Your typical paper bag trousers are getting upgraded in 2019 to a high waist tailored affair. Still keeping its relaxed slouchy feel while creating a long-legged and pulled together look for Petites.
