‘Though she be but little, she is fierce!’
William Shakespeare —
Being Petite can be problematic when it comes to shopping, no matter what the garment is you can guarantee that you will face long, ill-fitting frustrations. Luckily more and more brands are getting involved with Petite collections and M&Co were the latest I heard about. Their Manhattan Rose collection comprises of floral prints and berry shades for a colourful and classy Autumn. Spoilt for choice it was hard to decided which piece would get the most wear over Autumn but I finally came to a decision and opted for the Rose Print Wrap Blouse. I adore versatile pieces and after slimming down my wardrobe I follow the mantra of ensuring that I can wear a new item of clothing with at least 3 different pieces in my wardrobe. I thought that this blouse would look smart and chic with a pair of tailored trousers and heels, but for a day-time casual look I opted for ripped knee jeans and high shine burgundy boots, not forgetting layered necklaces for some essential accessorising. The blouse is bang on trend with a drape front that is not only stylish but super flattering for any figure. The sleeves are three quarter length which is a nice building block from Summer to Autumn without bringing out the knits just yet. The rose printed chiffon fabric is also a guaranteed statement piece that will be the key focus of any outfit.

There’s nothing I love more than items that are easily styled and versatile, the M& Co Petite collection is well worth a look if you are after classy separates and dresses that will brighten up your Autumn wardrobe.
