Fiona requested a few picks for petite red fit-and-flare dresses, so here we go:



ann taylor red dress

Ann Taylor Petite Pleated Flare Dress – was $149, now $74.50
with code FALL50

This is definitely the shape and color Fiona is seeking, though be aware that this is “scuba,” which means it’s a thick, stretchy, poly/spandex blend. I actually love scuba since it’s a lot like ponte in the way it behaves, but if you need natural fibers, look elsewhere! Available in petite sizes 00 -16, also in regular sizes. Also comes in black. This dress has a similar shape in sizes 16W – 24W.

J.Crew Factory Petite Pleated Shift Dress – was $108, now $64.50

OK, this may not be the flare-y-est of flares, but I’m not buying it as a shift dress either. The pleats and shaping make it an A-line at the least, and I’m loving the yoke detail. Wool blend, so great for fall and winter wear! Available in petite sizes 00 -12, as well as regular sizes. Also comes in steel blue. This dress has a similar shape and comes in sizes XL – 4X.


Julian Taylor Petite Elbow Sleeve Scoop Neck Fit and Flare Dress – was $98, now $58.80

If you click through and enlarge, you’ll see this dress has some jacquard-like texturing and some cool bodice seaming. Half sleeves are also great for many petite figures since they hit near the natural waist. Available in petite sizes 4 – 14. Also available in regular sizes. This similar dress is available in plus sizes.


Old Navy Petite Fit and Flare Sweater Dress – $39.94

Including this non-sale option because Old Navy has a sale approximately every five seconds, so if you wait until tomorrow you’ll likely get at least 10% off! I love a good flared sweater dress and this one is 50% cotton. Available in petite sizes XS – L, as well as regular and tall sizes. Also comes in navy, heather gray, and dark burgundy. This sweater dress has a similar shape and comes in sizes 1X – 3X.
