Nikki by example |

I loved this outfit from a week or so ago, and I’m very sad I haven’t gotten a better photo of it yet. This poncho sweater is a trend I’ve been wanting to try for a while now but oversized sweaters can be tricky for short folks to pull off. The sweater can look way too big or make you look smaller if the proportions aren’t right. This one is a Petite and fits perfectly on my 5′ 1″ frame. And it makes me look like a sophisticated adult instead of a little kid playing dress up. I’m so excited that I found it. In the photo above, I gave it the half tuck; in the photo below, I left it out. Which look do you like better?
