My aunt Faith and her friends Creta and Vicky are all under 5’ 2” are mature petite women. They try to look trendy and yet professional in their petite clothes. In their fifties and sixties these ladies wear clothes that complement their hair styles and coloring.

They find that they can still buy from clothing stores that cater to younger women to give them a flair that fits with their busy daily lives.

On a recent trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia, to attend a YWCA charity luncheon honoring my aunt, my mother and her friends were photographed in their petite styles. In the first photo from left to right, Vicky wears a silk raspberry and cream embroidered Asian jacket with its color-coordinated camisole.

Creta wears a crocheted white skirt and a black tee from Anthropologie and large chunk pearls from a recent trip to China.


In this photo, my mother on the left, wears a gold cotton and silk blend sweater set from J.Jill complemented by a Cartouche gold pendant (jewelry with your name in hieroglyphics) from a trip to Egypt years ago.

Faith wears a raspberry and black silk petite dress from Max Studio Outlet in Santa Monica with a black cashmere ruffled sweater from Saks Fifth Off. The outfit is complemented with deep pink crystal drop earrings and high heeled black strap shoes.

mature petite clothing In this photo left to right Faith wears velvet trimmed thermal separates from Fitiguesin in shades of gray with silver jewelry.

Creta wears simple black pants and tee with black belt with silver buckle and large silver pin and earrings to complement her short salt and pepper hair.

Vicky wears the classic lines of Eileen Fisher linen jacket and silk sweater with a long strand of amber beads to match the jacket and her naturally red hair.

Ethnic, chunky or beaded jewelry and lace blouses and other trims can add a lot to a classic black pant suit which also makes mature petite women look taller.

Senior petites need not imitate the younger set completely but can add a touch to classic petite clothes they already own and save money too.
