Glitzy dresses make festive holiday fashion statements, and short women can find metallic dresses sized specifically for petites this holiday season. Another option for a holiday party is the classic stand-by -- the little black dress (on my list of petite black dresses for winter, the first five would look good for any holiday party).

Wearing a black sequin top can make holiday dressing a snap. Wear a black sequin top with skinny jeans and knee-high boots to a casual holiday gathering, or up the fashion ante by wearing a black sequin top with a skirt, glitzy jewelry, and killer heels.
Would you believe that one of these petite black sequin tops costs $266 more than the other one? Can you tell which top is the splurge and which is the steal?

Fashion "must-haves" for cool weather include knee-high boots and sweaters. Whether you go traditional with a classic style or trendy with cutting-edge design, both boots and sweaters are really basics for late fall and winter wear.
I've put together a list of 10 petite sweaters and another list of 10 knee-high boots, all in flattering styles, for petites as a sampler of what's out there this season:

With the holiday season soon upon us, it's a good time to start planning what to wear to holiday parties. For a holiday cocktail party or party that's not strictly casual, a lace dress can make a big splash. Lace dresses are trendy this year, and they can do double duty too because they're good to go for weddings and other special occasions.
This year there are quite a few options in lace dresses for petites, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find a lace dress that fits properly for short women who wear petite sizes. This can be especially important because frequently the hems of sleeves and skirts on lace garments are the scalloped edge of the lace. This detail can make lace garments almost impossible to alter.
