10 Styles Petite Women Should Snag From The Kids Section

The early arrival of Christmas decorations at shopping malls is a great reminder that you should start hunting cute outfits for the upcoming holiday parties. Shopping isn’t always an easy task, especially for women with bodies on the extreme end of the sizing scale. I’m not only talking about XL plus. Super tiny women, like XXS and smaller, have trouble too.

Many brands don’t offer sizes smaller than XS while their littlest size is still too loose on petite ladies. But all hope is not lost. There are a few childrenswear lines that can pass as womenswear for those who wear XXS! They’re even cheaper than adult clothes. To shorten your trip at the mall, here are a few top-notch tiny pieces from the kids section you can wear to the holiday parties this season.
