To go with this summers's monochrome fashion theme is a trend to wear all white. If all one colour is too much for you, you can still embrace this trend with some summery white trousers to team with black or your favourite summery shade or print.
These Petite White Linen Blend Trousers from Debenhams own Petite Collection are a classic that should last you for years. They are a straight legged, linen blend trouser at a bargain £19 with free delivery. Available in sizes 10 to 22.

It's All There In Black And White
Monochrome is one of the hottest trends touted for this summer, and so we love this Petite Black Hexagonal Printed Jersey Maxi Dress which is from the Principles Petite by Ben de Lisi range. Ben de Lisi has revived the much loved Principles brand with his own talent for pattern and cutting, and this dress is a prime example of that.
This dress is classically styled whilst being bang on-trend for summer 2013. Your summer party wardrobe is here and it's properly proportioned to fit you too!

I'm longing for spring, warmer weather and a few flowers. While there is still snow and frost in the UK I will have to make do with this Rosa Print Bardot Knit Top from Precis Petite. It is a sweater, so just that little bit warmer, but bright enough to hint at summer days. Team with black now then swap to white , red or pink when the sun finally puts in an appearance.

Flowers In The Snow
Winter florals are a big trend for AW 2012. Flowers - but not girly, spring-like florals. Instead the flowers have a tougher edge, or at least a darker background which meant that they team perfectly with black, navy, burgundy and the other darks that we tend to gravitiate towards as the weather turns colder. Viz these Oriental Print Tapered Trousers from Next petite, which come in sizes 6 to 18. Tuck them into boots or slip on ballet flats, throw on this season's cosy sweater and go.....Sorry, this item is no longer available

Definately Not A Tiger
I love this Bengaline Dress from Miss Selfridge's petite range. Bengaline, apparently is 'a fabric with a crosswise rib' so I have learnt something today.
