Petite Pant Suits With Versatility.

Your online guide for sophiticated petite pant suits.

In the past several years, women have been taking the business world by storm. More and more wives and moms are becoming career women. Busy working women need a wardrobe that is both stylish and comfortable, and the pants suit can do both.

The popularity of the pants suit has been rising, and rightfully so. It's versatility has made it a hot commodity. The pant and jacket can be worn together as a set, separately with different wardrobe pieces, dressed up for work, dressed down for casual Friday, and even taken from day to evening with a few simple accessory changes. The versatility is not the only thing the pants suit has going for it. It is also one of the most comfortable items a woman could wear.

As petite women, we want to make sure that all of our clothes are as flattering to our bodies as possible. The pant suit is definitely something that can accentuate the good and hide the, well, “not-so-good”. Picking a pant that is wide and straight will help create the illusion of length in the leg. Pair those pants with a great pair of heels and you have just added a few more inches to your stature. The jacket is the most important piece of the pant suit. Not only does it complete the set but it is the item that can be the most flattering or the most unflattering. A petite woman should look for a jacket that is cut at just the right place. A jacket that is too long will give the appearance of shorter legs, and a jacket that is too short will cut the torso in half. Also, find a jacket with a belt or similar detail in the waist area. This will help bring attention to the smallest part of the body.

Lastly, when buying a pant suit, make sure it is practical. Is the color flexible enough to go with most things in your closet? Is the material suitable for the weather all year round? Is it classic enough to last you for seasons to come?
