Best Dressed Petite Women

You know that feeling when you pass someone on the street with an incredible outfit? It’s a mixture of awe and envy. She trots by you, with an insouciant flick of her on-trend hair, directional coat flapping behind her, statement shoes clicking as she walks. A fleeting style crush.
