Professional petite women have found a real lack of well-fitting, tailored clothing that caters to them and their busy, corporate lifestyles. So we really pay attention when we come across a brand that ticks every single one of those boxes. Investment-worthy pieces that are of premium quality, chic enough to wear to the office all day, and last season after season? Yes, those brands definitely exist…
Jennifer Anne is one brand we can never get enough of, as it embodies everything we look for in sharp, perfectly-fitting, timeless petite clothing. The brand is barely a year old, but the designer has already been hailed by the media for her modern, stylish and age appropriate collection for anyone 5’3 and under. She was even chosen by former Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis as one of his Small Business Sunday winners.
Jennifer Anne Daily Mail interview

We’ve lost count of the number of shift dresses, shirt dresses and general office pieces that have either drowned us or un-flattered our shapes one way or another, but we can say with some confidence that that won’t happen with Jennifer Anne’s selection that not only caters to our petite shapes, but also leaves us feeling confident and empowered too.
“Our pattern cutters would take the petite woman’s frame as the starting point for designs, rather than just lopping a few centimetres off conventional measurements,” she previously told The Daily Mail.
We’re delighted that many of her pieces are now on sale, as it means we can give our wardrobes a much needed overhaul. Some of the sale items we’ve selected are ready to wear for the rest of this glorious summer – and of course the next one, and most probably the one after that – and a few are key pieces that we plan to save for a rainy day. We can’t pass up a sale this good!
Upgrade your work clothes for less
Office wear in the corporate corridors can notoriously be a bit dull, which is why we love the idea of injecting some colour to monochrome outfits – especially during the height of summer! This Jennifer Anne fuchsia Carter neck detail top is the perfect piece to brighten up the office. Tuck into petite pencil skirts and petite trousers alike.
Jennifer Anne really knows what we are looking for when it comes to petite friendly smart casual clothing – and this bold shirt dress is an excellent example. Wear now with bright pumps for a summer ready look, and team with black tights and ankle boots when there’s a chill in the air.

The Brookner Blazer has however been designed with more ease so will be true to size if you like a more tailored fit. If you have any questions on sizing then please contact us and we will be only too happy to advise.
We really encourage taking advantage of sales, and this Jennifer Anne Brookner merino wool blazer – which also comes with matching trousers – is one of those buy now, wear later finds. This is especially helpful if you’re shopping for effortless back to work outfits after maternity leave. Grey suits are a failsafe office option, and petite ones are even better as it saves you the trip to the tailor. And if you’re a new mum, we know that that’s a trip you’d rather not make!
Rare date nights or Friday night cocktails with the girls both call for a chic and sharp outfits – and Jennifer Anne has this all wrapped up in a red hot package thanks to this Artio panel shirt dress. You’ll turn heads for all the right reasons this summer with a knee length dress that we are confident will sit on the knee and steer clear of all ankles.

The petite Sirona Jacket is finely crafted from a luxury blend of silk and linen. The ¾ sleeve cropped jacket is a sophisticated and stylish addition to any wardrobe.
The summer’s far from over, so if your work wardrobe needs a little bit of an update, investing in some key summer pieces that can also take you through to the autumn months is a good plan. We love the light blue colour of this Sirona cropped jacket as it just screams summer, and the cropped fit not only flatters petite shapes, but also makes us more comfortable during hot spells. Win, win!
High Waisted Skirt
We love a hard-working skirt, and this Jennifer Anne A-line high waisted skirt is exactly that. Smarten up with a blouse, dress it down with a casual tee, or dress it up with a dazzling top – this skirt is an all-rounder that practically pays for itself!
