Swirls & Such

 High-Waisted Flock Treggings – Topshop

Coat – Topshop

Boots – Miss Selfridge

Like most Petite ladies, I have serious problems with finding Trousers these days! The Petite sections of my favourite stores really aren’t much help and I find that I just don’t like any of the Petite-style trousers. I feel like I spend a ridiculous amount of time in Leggings – pretty much because they are a fail safe option; thankfully Topshop and Miss Selfridge sell your standard black leggings in Petite, so that’s not a problem…but sometimes you want something a bit different!

 absolutely LOVE patterned jeans, trousers and leggings at the moment. I never used to, but recently I’ve realised just how much they can liven up an outfit and add a bit of glamour. Have I been able to find any in Petite though? Of course not. I always try and hunt in the Petite sections first, because I get so fed up of poorly-fitting items bunched up around the knees or ankles. The only good thing I can say about Winter is that, finally, we can wear ankle boots and so it doesn’t matter so much if trousers and leggings have to be bunched or rolled around the ankles!

I was doing my usual disheartened mooch through Topshop the other day, rather grumpily hunting for trousers and certain I wasn’t going to find any, when I spied this gorgeous pair of leggings! Or, ‘Treggings’ as Topshop prefer to call them. I absolutely love the intricate pattern and grey and black detail, plus they’re just that tiny bit thicker than normal leggings, which is great for a cold Winter day and also means they’ll last a bit longer due to studier material! With a little bit of rolling at the ankles, they actually fit me really nicely! So at least that’s one pair of patterned bottoms ready for the Winter…now to find a couple more, because I can’t just live in these!

    I highly recommend this pair of black trousers from Mango:

    They also have a similar pair in navy blue:

    They fit perfectly on my petite frame because they're cropped for normal-sized people.

    Oh wow amazing, thank you so much for letting me know! It's so hard to find trousers for Petite – wearing cropped is such a good solution! xxx
