All Work and No Play: Shortsuit for Petites

May 22, 2008


A friend of mine called me for advice on what to wear for a girls night out. She is short and very tiny and sick of the not being able to wear the latest trends like the maxi dress. This girl has the perfect body for a shortsuit (shorter version of a jumpsuit). I had sent her to Intermix in Georgetown to look for a jumpsuit and gladiator or strappy heels. The shortsuit is an outfit a petite woman can pull off without looking trashy or too young. With a few accessories and platform heels, this outfit can work for a night out on the town or even dancing at the club. I chose a colorful Chloe silk Playsuit with thin straps an added gold accessories.
