Having a staple jacket is a must for all wardrobes. And having a few statement pieces also help spice up your wardrobe. However, it can be challenging for petite women to find one that perfectly fits their frame. Even though designers are getting better at cutting clothes for petite frames, knowing the right shape and style can make shopping for outwear much easier.

Let’s explore some must-have outerwear styles that are perfect for petite women.

Petite Animal Print Pocket Wrap Coat

For smaller women defining the waistline gives you the appearance of a longer frame, and this jacket does just that with its belted waist. This mid-thigh length helps define your waist and extend your silhouette.

ASOS DESIGN Petite Check Belted Coat

Though petites should usually avoid jackets that are too long, this coat is an exception to the rule as it accentuates the waistline and keeps the lines of the jacket closer to the body, creating the illusion of height.

Brave Soul Petite Rome Neon Cropped Faux Fur Jacket

If you’ve been blessed with a long torso and shorter legs, then a jacket that cuts high at the hip is the ideal cut for you. This faux fur jacket is definitely one to catch the eye and is the perfect cut for petite women.

Avec Les Filles Water-Resistant Belted Puffer Coat

Puffer jackets never go out of style, but they can make a petite woman look bulky if they’re the wrong cut. Look for a puffer with a detailed pattern or with light filling and a belt, so you don’t lose your form in it!

Anne Klein Petite Single-Breasted Walker Coat

To cut down on extra bulk, choose a single-breasted jacket like this Anne Klein coat. It’s straight lines and tailored seaming can create a flattering hourglass shape, perfect for a petite frame.

You don’t have to dread the search for a winter coat if you’re a petite woman. The most important things to remember are to pick pieces with a belt or cinched waist, are single-breasted, or have a sleek silhouette.
