Today’s a historical day – Zara is finally available for sale online – fashionistas everywhere rejoice!

I don’t live near very many Zara’s and have always struggled finding things in my size even when I do go. The following skirts were purchased on sale using Suddenlee, previously reviewed here.

While many of Zara’s offerings are not suited for the petite crowd, some styles can work for taller petites who are also bigger in size. For pencil skirts a hem and possibly slimming of the sides may be required. I think the shorter length skirts and pants would work well on bigger petites.

Edit: a petite community member doxyloo recommends the TRF (the “juniors” line at Zara). She says the bottoms typically run 23″-25″ (so could work for smaller petites) but the tops run bigger.

I guess the take away is that Zara is cut for people of average height and taller so petite ladies should try to direct their attention to the shorter styles.

And some fall lovelies!
