Modern femininity is the name of the game for British brand Fashion Union Petite. These designs for smaller figures celebrate flares, florals and frills, with a focus on those all-important, trend-focused going-out pieces. Turn to these dresses, tops and skirts when it’s time to pull out all the stops.

Fashion Union Petite: high-impact glamour

It’s Friday night, the music’s on, the girls are round and the vino is open. Getting ready is often the best part of going out, but the taxi’s almost here and you’ve still got nothing to wear. Sound familiar? These pieces from the Fashion Union Petite collection have got your back, with structured pieces that are all about the detail: we’re talking ruffles, lace overlays and patterns. Choose a dress from the collection for Friday night at the bar, and team with stilettos or lace-up flats and a handy cross-body bag. Make the A-list with a single swipe of red lipstick. For a rockier look that’s straight out of the 80s, take a skirt from the Fashion Union Petite range and wear a tight bodysuit tucked in - corkscrew curls and some no-nonsense platform boots will finish off the vibe.

Fashion Union Petite: low-key occasions made easy

They may be glamorous, but these pieces from the Fashion Union Petite range are also versatile. Style a dramatic ruffled top for casual brunches by pairing with some easy-going mom jeans and brogues. Tie the material at the back to show off just a hint of midriff (is that an off-duty model we see?). Feminine blouses do wonders for brightening up Monday mornings. Wear yours with a sophisticated pencil skirt and peep-toe boots for a hint of 50s pin-up style, or embrace androgyny with some wide-leg culottes and loafers.
