A pencil skirt is a great style pick for petites. The pencil skirt not only makes my list of top 10 slimming styles, but it's also extremely versatile which makes it easy to find lots of ways to wear a pencil skirt. Here's a pencil skirt for petites in a navy, a neutral fashion color, which ups the versatility factor even more.
This lightweight wool pencil skirt is available from Banana Republic (Buy Direct) in petites' sizes 00 - 8 as well as regular sizes 00 - 16. The length of the petite skirt is 21 1/4", and the length of the regular skirt is 2 inches longer at 23 1/4", so the regular skirt may work better for those petites who like to wear their skirts a bit longer.
