If you’ve been thinking about trying the trench cape, you may be apprehensive, since clothing that drapes around or across the body can be overwhelming for petite figures. However, there are some petite fashion blogs like Stylish Petite you can refer to that will give you all the tips you need to look great with a trench cape.
Even though it’s still summer, fall is soon approaching, and the trench cape is a fashionable way to welcome in the new season. Stores like Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, Nordstrom and Banana Republic have trendy trench capes that will look great with both pants and skirts.
Take a look at examples from petite fashion blogs that suggest a trench cape that isn’t too long. Since the cape is loss, if it’s too long, it can make you look shorter. Choose a trench cape that falls just at the waist. If you’re going with a trench cape in a bright color, make sure that the rest of your outfit is monochromatic or in a neutral color. If you choose a black or tan trench cape, you can wear trousers or a skirt in a simple pattern like large floral print or stripes to bring the outfit together.
You can also wear a medium heel with your trench cape to add a little more interest to the outfit. A heel that is too high can make the body look unproportioned. If you’re wearing pants with your trench cape, skinny jeans or skinny trousers are best, since wide-leg pants will make it look like you’re wearing too much fabric.
