Petite Edit with Monika M for @hobbslondon

So I was delighted when asked to partner with Hobbs, a brand that I have worn since university, they featured me on their website but as the edit will drop off in a few weeks thought that I would share it on here:

Being petite, blogger Monika Mandal knows all too well how tricky it can be to find the perfect fit. "It often means that when I buy clothes, they will require some form of alteration, so when I discovered Hobbs' petite range, I was beyond excited!" Here, she shares her favourite petite outfits from the collection.


"When I slip on the Saskia trench coat, I find it fits beautifully through the body, the sleeves don't need to be shortened and it falls to the perfect knee-length. When I belt it, there isn't the usual excess fabric adding unflattering volume. It's such an iconic style, I know I'll be wearing it for many more seasons to come."


"Every well-curated wardrobe needs a LBD. I love the flattering shift shape of the Ophelia, the cap sleeves add the perfect amount of coverage for work, while the darts add interest. I've styled it with the coordinating Ophelia jacket, as the dress is made from the same fabric so it feels like a suit."


"With its single button fastening, the Ophelia jacket has a contemporary feel as well as a flattering silhouette that looks great with a pair of trousers or a dress. It's the perfect length for me, aligning to the tops of my hips. I love the attention to detail such as the stitch detailing around the collar."


"I love these tapered trousers. They look great with flats or heels and are incredibly comfortable to wear thanks to the quality of the fabric – they don't crease despite sitting at my desk all day. When I first put them on, I was pleasantly surprised that they fit perfectly on my waist, hips and inside leg. Finding trousers that fit can be a real challenge, but not in this instance!"

Thanks for reading !!
