Petite Work Clothes for Women

What should petite women wear to work? Get dressed for the office with confidence thanks to well-proportioned petite work clothes for women. Check out Macy’s flattering selection of petite suits and suit separates, dresses, tops and more designed with the petite woman’s frame in mind.

Am I petite? Typically, petite women are 5’ 4” and under. Keep in mind that a petite woman can have any body shape including hourglass, pear, apple, rectangle and plus size.

What’s a work-appropriate outfit for a petite woman? For the petite woman, it’s business as usual when it comes to getting dressed for work. It simply depends on the dress code:

For a corporate office, stick with conservative pieces worthy of your 9-to-5. Sharpen your work wardrobe with a petite suit or petite skirt suit that’s cut for your frame. Modern versions feature cool details such as bold sleeves or subtle prints. Suits in neutral colors are timeless for a reason and can be spiced up with a bold blouse. Get more wear out of a suit by breaking it up. Wear the blazer with petite pants in a different color (the navy-and-black combo is trending). Another option? Skip the blazer altogether and pair a petite skirt with a sweater in a luxe fabric such as cashmere or wool.   

For a relaxed work environment, dress up a casual outfit with polished separates. A classic jeans-and-tee look instantly becomes work-ready when paired with a petite blazer or petite jacket. Dark wash jeans are easy to wear in a casual office setting. Pair them with a petite top in your favorite color. Dress down a petite dress with a pair of sneakers or layered over leggings.
