Daily Tip: Petite Ladies Are Having a Moment

Let's just get it out of the way: I'm petite, which is a fashionable way of saying that I'm short.

Daily tip: trends have never been kinder to petites

Luckily, skinnies, flares, high-waisted and cropped pants are all in right now (and even if they weren't, I would wear them anyway). As are bracelet sleeves, which fix the too-long arms issue.
