With the major department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus scaling back on their petite sections in the last decade, women under 5’4” have gradually adapted to online shopping.  It is a pity that many designers, such as Jcrew and Brook Brothers, have petite sizes online only.  Petite girls all prefer to have a petite studio locally where they can try on the clothing before purchasing.  While there are plenty of choices online for petite clothing and it is convenient to order and wait for packages delivered to your door, nothing compares to the joy of going to actual stores, touch the fabrics and try on the clothes.  We have scouted New York city and put together this guide to make it easier for petite girls shopping for petite fashion style.
