3 ways to wear leather jacket

Leather jackets are stylish and classic, it’s a wardrobe staple item. Petite celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Ariana Grande have been sporting this wardrobe staple inspiring us petites to wear this trend. While these celebs have nailed the leather jacket look there is always the possibility of wearing the leather jacket in a way that does not compliment the petite frame.

In this post I am showing three different ways you can wear the leather jacket being petite.

Look 1

Wear it with a dress. For a smart look, I suggest you wear the leather jacket with a short shift dress. This is a versatile look which you can wear at work or go for drinks after work. Be sure to pair this outfit with heels.

For a casual look wear leather jacket with boyfriend jeans and a plain t-shirt. A leather jacket has the ability to transform any outfit and is perfect for a casual look.

Short skirt and leather jacket goes well with each other. You can achieve a sassy look by adding heels to this entire look. Finish the look with a pair of tights in winter months.

Boohoo is one of my favourite online retailers especially because they cater to petite women like me. Boohoo was launched in 2006 and it quickly grew to be one of the fastest growing online retailers in the world. It’s amazing to see a Manchester born retailer be so successful globally, showcasing British fashion.
Most of my outfits for my Maldives holiday were from Boohoo. I was approached by Boohoo recently for their Style Swap campaign. Boohoo are hosting a style swap campaign where they are setting up UK bloggers with Parisian bloggers and asking them to swap their styles. I was quite excited about this campaign as I rarely wear clothes that are out of my comfort zone. This was a great way to experiment with different fashion trend from a different country.

I was paired up with French blogger Noemi from L’effet Noemie who selected an outfit for me. I was anxiously waiting for the Boohoo package to see what Noemi chose for me. I received a yellow floral printed pant, white crop top, a statement necklace and white clutch bag. The yellow pants and white crop top were definitely out of my comfort zone as I kind of stay away from those colours. Since I have put on some weight I don’t normally wear crop tops. Noemi via the Boohoo style swap gave me this great opportunity to step out of my comfort zone which is  great in terms of my personal style development.

I did alter the printed pants as it was not from the petite section plus I wore a cami top below the crop top to camouflage my tummy. Hope you guys liked the way I styled it.

Did you guys ever wear something out of your comfort zone?

Shoe Zone offers bargain footwear that is as stylish as the catwalk. They have over 500 stores in UK and Ireland and their average shoe price is around £10. Recently I got the opportunity to try a pair of shoes from their collection. After browsing their website, I fell in love with this suede high heel shoes. The heel is quite high, but it’s ideal for a the night out if you are looking for something edgy and sassy to pair up with a night outfit. Having really tiny petite feet I was first a bit unsure if the size 3 ( this is the starting size for women) would fit me, as I don’t fit in the standard UK size 3 for most retailers. However this one did fit me as it has a strap on the back and doesn’t come out of my feet like other court shoes. To be honest when I am unsure of the size, my safe bet is to go a for shoes which have strap at the back. If you have tiny feet like mine I would suggest going for a shoe with strap if you are not 100% certain, that brand size would fit you. In my years of shoe shopping experience I have realised not all retailers have the same measurements, a size 3 in Barratts is not same as a size 3 in Newlook. Anyway, I decided to pair the heel shoes with Topshop petite mini skirt and Primark basic t-shirt. Being petite wearing a short skirts with high heel gives my petite frame the illusion of long legs hence helping to look taller.

 If you are wearing a mini skirt, it’s best to wear something totally covered up on top to achieve a classy and elegant look.

Outfit Details:

Top: Primark

Skirt: Topshop Petite

Jacket: Topshop Petite

Shoes: Shoezone* Suede High Heel  (UK Size 3)
