If you are – we’ll show you how you can still add some sparkle to your wedding guest look post summer. We’ve selected the most glamorous outfits for every petite lady’s budget and style.
Go bold in black
The best thing about a winter wedding? You can throw out the rule book because many guests opt for a chic black outfit. A LBD + chic chandelier earrings is a style staple for a reason, plus the knee length is perfect for petites. The long sleeves of this Accurator petite dress will keep you warm, and the beautiful folded back detail will wow as you remove your coat once inside.
Velvet is a winter winner
This plush velvet dress is begging to be worn to a winter wedding. The 40s style flatters a petite frame; the V-neck cut shows off just enough skin, while the longer length, midi sleeves and thicker fabric make it cold weather appropriate. Nod to the 1940’s era by accessorising with elegant pearls. We adore these glamorous leaf hair slides. Wear with nude tights and a smart tailored coat.
Long sleeved & patterned elegance
This Relax Baby Be Cool number is the Queen of petite dresses; it’s A-line, on trend and in the colours of the season. Plus, no worrying about your arms getting chilly in this dress. Make the print be the statement, by accessorizing with understated jewellery and nude heels for extra height. This dresses colour palette would look perfect under a tailored camel coat.
Go chic in nude
The trend for ‘colour blocking’, (wearing one colour head to toe) is a winning styling tip for petites, as the long block of colour elongates the frame. The long sleeves of this petite dress are perfect if your arms aren’t your favourite area. The draping also promises to flatter, no clingy bodycon’s in sight. The cashmere pashmina will be a godsend if the nuptials are held in a chilly venue and you can bet that chic rose gold bag will look great post-wedding, with your fave pair of petite jeans.

The structured fit and darker hue will suit, regardless of your shape. The addition of a jacket and nude tights will keep the cold at bay, remove once you’re inside to show off that gorgeous print.
