If you’re short like me, here are the best petite friendly items from Everlane!
I know there are a bunch of other bloggers that love Everlane like I do, but I also know that it can be hard to trust what is going to look good on YOU if most of the gals you follow are tall and you’re not, right? Trust me, I feel you! As a 5’2″ gal with curves, I am definitely not going to look the same in a piece of clothing as a 5’8″ woman who is all legs. That being said, I’ve managed to find a lot of really great petite-friendly items from Everlane over the years.
Even though they don’t have petite sizes, there are so many pieces with great proportions for me. Plus, the fact that they make their pants in “short” and “ankle” lengths is huge. So, if you’re petite but looking to make some purchases, I hope this guide helps you figure out what sizes and lengths are best for you. You already know my height, but for extra reference, I am usually an XS in sweaters, a 2 in dresses, and a 26 in pants with stretch/27 in pants without stretch.

The Best Petite Friendly Items from Everlane
The alpaca sweater that I’ve been raving about for the past few years is BACK! I opted for this perfectly neutral color this season since I have pink and teal from previous years. It runs oversized so I recommend taking your normal size instead of sizing up. (I wear an XS.)
If you’re looking for a petite friendly straight leg jean, these are SO good! I’m wearing a slightly different pair in the photo above, but they’re VERY similar. I love that they don’t add too much volume to your legs – a key for petite gals. They are a little rigid, but I still got my usual size in ankle length.
These are just the sweetest little shoes. The velvet is beautiful and they are extremely comfortable. I got my normal size!
Looking for a cozy grandpa-style cardigan to get you through winter? THIS is it. I have it in an XS and it’s perfectly oversized on me. You can wear it open (pictured above), but I also like it buttoned up all the way with leggings. Such a great work-from-home staple, and it comes in multiple colors!
I am 5’2″ and these jeans in ankle length are PERFECT on me. I’ve gotten this style in regular sizing before, but I think I like the “curvy” version better because it still runs true to size but it gives a little bit more around the hips and booty. I would definitely say these are my most worn pair of jeans. They’re the best.
I know this is pricey for a hoodie – but the cashmere is SO NICE and makes it super versatile. I’ve worn this dressed down around the house as well as dressed up for a night out. The cropped length is PERFECT with high waisted jeans, and the color is really pretty in person. I got an XS.
Yes, this beanie is as soft as you want it to be. Swoon.
I’ve had their leggings since they launched them and I’m really impressed with how well they’ve held up. They’re super affordable and come in ankle length, too! Runs true to size (I wear a small in ankle length).
I’ve had these sneakers for a few years now and they’re still in excellent condition. They run true to size and I love them, but I do find them to be a little heavy/bulky to wear with skirts and dresses. Instead I only pair them with jeans and leggings. They run true to size.
Say hello to the coziest half zip sweater in the world! The high collar on this makes it feel a little bit more elevated and stylish than my other half or quarter zips, and I can already tell I’m going to wear it a TON this winter. It runs a little oversized – I’m wearing an XS.
Cashmere AND collared? My heart! I knew I had to get this sweater in red because I love color, but it also comes in more neutrals too. It’s just as soft as you want it to be and I love that you can easily dress it up with a skirt or down with jeans. I got a size small so it would fit a little slouchy.
Whenever people ask me for bootie suggestions, I always recommend this pair. They literally feel like socks on your feet, plus the heel height is perfectly comfortable and walkable. They run true to size and they hold up well, too! I’ve had mine for over 2 years and they still look great!
This turtleneck is so soft, it feels like such a treat! It has an oversized fit, so I recommend sizing down if you’re petite like me. It’s also made from 100% recycled cashmere yarn – how cool is that?
I have had this catch all case for a few years now and it’s the best travel companion. It has tons of space and compartments, it’s made from 100% recycled polyester with a water-resistant finish, and it’s only $22 right now!
If you’re in the market for a great t-shirt, this one is one of my all time favorites. I think it runs true to size and I love that it’s not too long. It also comes in solids if stripes aren’t your thing!
The Best Tops for Petites
Ever struggled to find a cute cropped cardigan that works with jeans or over a little black dress? This is it! If you have a long torso, it might be a little too cropped for you since it only has 3 buttons – but if you’re short all around like me, I love it with high waisted jeans! Runs true to size.
This cropped sweater cami is literally the CUTEST summer top ever. Super comfortable, super versatile, and on SALE! I got a size small and I’ve worn it with jeans, skirts, and skorts all summer!
How many fitness camis have you tried on only to have the extra fabric bunch awkwardly around your hips? A LOT, right?! But not this one! This cami is perfectly cropped to sit right at or above your waist – and it has a built in bra, too!!! I don’t think I’d wear this for anything too high intensity, but it’s definitely going to be a favorite for yoga, pilates, barre, or even walks around the neighborhood. I also really love the perform bike shorts, too! I have a size small in both.
Love the color, the length of the sleeves, the ribbed fabric – this is such a great basic tee that definitely doesn’t overwhelm a petite frame. Wearing an XS!
You’ve definitely heard me rave about this sweater a million times, but I can’t help it! This sweater is definitely a little oversized, so not quite as petite friendly as some other styles. That being said, as long as you do not size up, I think it totally works. You can see more photos of how I’ve styled it in this post and this capsule wardrobe post (in another color)! Also, these colors are on sale right now!
The one I’m wearing above is sold out, but this one is SO similar that I had to mention it! You can choose from a thong or bikini style and the fit is awesome. (I also own this turtleneck bodysuit but I don’t have a photo of me in it – sorry!)
The Best Pants and Shorts for Petites
My favorite jeans now come in white? Yes please! I love that this white version is still soft and stretchy, but not see through at all. No summer embarrassments here! They also come in ankle length so us shorties don’t have to get them hemmed at the tailor.
If I had to choose one style for petites, it would be the Authentic Stretch High Rise Skinny Jeans in Ankle length. I have multiple pairs and they are the jeans I reach for the most often. High quality denim, great length (as long as you order them in ankle, not regular!), and I love the rise on them. They tend to run a little small, so if you are in between sizes, you might want to size up instead of down. I wear my usual size 26 and they’re a little snug – but that’s how I like my skinny jeans!
These jeans are the same as the pair above… just with a button fly! I never used to own button fly jeans, but these made me a believer (I also have them in black!). Super comfortable and super flattering. What more could you want?! You can see how I styled them different ways in this post.
I know most of you aren’t going to an office right now, but when you go back – these are the best work pants. I love that, even though they are a cropped style, they still made them in short for petite gals like us! WOOO! You can see more of these in this capsule post.
The Best Jumpsuits and Dresses For Petites
Everlane dresses usually don’t fit me right because I’m short, but this one fits like a dream!! I love the tiered skirt and open back so much. I got a size 0 and I wear these since you can’t wear a normal bra with it.
Shoes and Accessories
Even though shoes, bags, and accessories aren’t specific to petite gals, I wanted to share a few favorite just in case you’re in the market!
If you only ever buy one more pair of booties in your life, it should be these. They are the MOST comfortable boots I’ve even worn – they feel like sweaters on your feet! I think they run true to size, and you can see more photos of them in this post and this post!
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect sneaker forever. You know, the kind that are comfortable enough for long walks but still look cool? This pair checks all the boxes and didn’t need to be broken in at ALL. Plus, they’re under $100 and they are made with less waste, less energy, and less virgin plastic than other leather sneakers like them. Obsessed. (You can shop the rest of the outfit here.)
Not only do I love the style of these rain booties, but the price can not be beat. Where else can you get high quality waterproof boots for just $75? And they’re only $56 this week? Oh yeahhhh! You can see more in this post.
These sandals are my go-to every summer. While the bottoms are pretty flat, the leather straps feel like BUTTER, so you don’t have to worry about them cutting into your skin/giving you blisters. They’re the best.
