The 10 petite commandments

1.  Never wear a dress over trousers it shortens the body.
2.  Don’t wear big patterns they will drown you, instead wear smaller prints.
3.  Choose the size of your handbag wisely, too big and it will make you look smaller.
4.  Always wear fitted trousers as they lengthen your legs.
5.  Tucking a shirt into trousers makes you appear taller.
6.  Belt a baggy top for a streamline silhouette.
7.  A long delicate necklace will add inches to your neck.
8.  Don’t wear bootleg trousers; they can make your legs look stumpy.
9.  Avoid Large jewellery.
10.  Never turn up jeans or let them gather at the bottom, everyone will know they are too big for you and your legs will look much shorter than they really are.

Dannii does us proud

Five foot two Dannii Minogue proved that the bandeau isn't the only style of dress us petite girls can wear when she came over all festive in a slinky number during a book signing in Oz.,The X Factor judge and Project D designer, accessorised her red maxi, which otherwise would have been plain, with a flower/tribal necklace. Ms Minogue flies the flag for all petite fashionistas by showing that smaller girls can wear maxi dresses too.

All I want for Christmas is.......

Petite Palazzo pants £50 Topshop. These trousers will take me through to next Spring, and are set to continue to be a key trend well into 2011.

Petite Navaho Knitted Cardi £60 Topshop. I need these cardigan to keep me warm over the New Year. It will be perfected layered with long sleeve cotton tops and t-shirts as it gets warmer.

Petite Draped Utlitary Jumpsuit £55 ASOS.I'm a sucker for a good jumpsuit and this combines the military trend too. Please Santa I've been a good girl.

Petite Foldover Cord Peg £32 ASOS. These trousers are such a bargain and will go perfectly with my heritage jacket and brown brogues. The ideal casual yet semi-smart trouser.

Petite Midi Plisse Skirt £30 Miss Selfridge. A cute little skirt to take me through the party season. I'll team it with wooly jumpers and a belt in the day, and a sequin top and heels at night.
