At 1.67m and 48 kgs with a slender frame (always an XS) you could definitely call me petite. That's one of the reasons I had been refraining from wearing long coats. I always thought they would make me look shapeless and even smaller than I already am. Long coats can be tricky for us petite gals. But if you find the right one, they can really make your outfit sophisticated and very Parisian chic. Here are few thing to keep in mind :
1.Look for one that falls at your calf or above the knee (midi length).
2.Wear it with skinny jeans, slim trousers or a fitted dress. Generally avoid slouchy bottoms.
3.For a more polished, sleek appearance, betting on an oversized coat in greyish shades can be an option.
4.Go for structured coats. They flatter petite frames better.
I paired my grey coat with a logo sweatshirt , black skinnies and ankle booties for a more rock/casual look and layered with an oversized scarf + bag.
