November 30, 2017 Bomb Petite

In this transitional time from the first nips of autumn to deep winter, the weather can be unpredictable to say the least. The pieces you can invest in now will work hard in your wardrobe over the coming months. Often it’s worth spending a little more on key items; with winter layering a must, you’re getting your money’s worth in cost per wear.

We want to show you how to style these petite pieces now, and later.
