Some of us dabble in the art of mixing prints and some of us avoid it completely. The sunny season calls for experimenting with bright wares in playful, punchy hues. The secret to pulling off the look lies in the careful combination of prints that look complementary when set against one another. Unsure where to start? Here, our tips on how to master this tricky trend through three distinct outfits.
These looks are sure to encourage a fresh approach to your closet.
While some of us relate to Carrie Bradshaw‘s more-is-more approach to shoe shopping,

Each season, we look forward to a fresh crop of handbags to give our accessory game a sartorial shake-up.

spring is ushering in an assembly of other fresh silhouettes, like refined satchels and updated buckets.
If you are blessed with luscious curls or waves,
it is your time to embrace this look.
This year is all about enhancing your natural look and beauty,
so leave that hair to dry naturally!

It’s time to get ready for autumn, and what better way to do it than to invest in a few key pieces for your wardrobe.

Miss Williams Fashion have a huge variety of gorgeous clothes to choose from – the key is to have fun with your outfits and enjoy what you’re wearing.
So to make it a bit easier for you, I’ve compiled a list of some items that should be seen in every stylish woman’s wardrobe this autumn.
In the past few of years, it’s become abundantly clear to retailers that the plus-size market is underserved, which resulted in major growth opportunity. But there is another niche size category that should be given more attention — petites. Continue reading
A few years ago I started my online boutique, catering to the needs of petite women. Along the way I’ve learned that ‘regular’ size women love the style of clothes that I was selling but they feared that the would not be able to fit in them. Some purchased the tops and jumpers which fitted them very well.
The funny thing about his whole online boutique targeting petite ladies, is that not many petite ladies trust that the clothes will fit them? So what do I do? How do I convince petite women that my clothes will look absolutely fabulous on them? I’ve thought long and hard about this challenge and I’ve decided to wear more of the clothing I sell. I am a pint size 155cm tall, and I suppose in order to convince my target audience to trust my business, I’ll have to be the clothes horse.
Every woman wants to be a fashionista in today’s social media-crazed world. We take selfies galore –I I was any good at it I’d be posting more selfies too– pouting of the lips the bathroom shots…which I think it’s quite sad–taking selfies in public toilets, to me is inelegant.
As a single working mum and business woman I tend to not have time to take many selfies. In the mornings when I’m ready for work– it’s a dash out front (sometimes even a sprint) whilst hurrying up the boy. Cause I have to catch that train. Being a senior staff in the work place means you are to get in early or as least on time!!!
Some mornings after I’m ready for the day, I think “ooh you look great, it would be super to take a photo and post it so everyone can see how fabulous I look! But then no time to take a gazillion selfies until I find that perfect one that makes me look like I’m the dogs bollocks… Cause it does take time to get the blue steel shot. Taking selfies is time consuming and should be done when one is on holiday or on a sparce weekend and you just have nothing to do.

Playsuits, jumpsuits and rompers have become massively popular in last few years. What was once a selective trend is now worn by celebrities and consumers alike. Wearing a jumpsuit, playsuit or romper is super easy and can be dressed up or down. If you are unsure which one may be most suitable for you, take a look at our guide to the hottest trend in fashion.
A jumpsuit is an item of clothing that incorporates a top and trousers in one. Jumpsuits can be worn on a number of occasions whether formal or informal. When it comes to choosing a jumpsuit it’s important to find one with the correct fit for your shape. Jumpsuits that are too tight are not only uncomfortable but can be highly unflattering.
If they’re too big, they can swamp your shape of make you look bigger than you actually are. Look for one that accentuates the waist, perhaps with colour or a belt. Also look at pant length and shape. If your pear shaped or curvy, go for styles that have wider legs in order to help balance your shape. When you’re wearing one for evening, shopping or special occasions make sure it’s easy to remove as you’ll need to be able to undo it easily if you need a toilet break.
Regardless of your shape and size, knowing what clothes suit you will help you to make the most of your figure. Many stores, such as Miss Williams sell clothes that cater for petite women with curves. To find the best clothes to flatter your shape, follow our helpful tips below and you’ll soon be on your way to achieving your perfect wardrobe.
What NOT To Wear
Full Length Coats
Full length coats tend to suit taller women better. On shorter women, they swamp your shape and accentuate your small height. Choose shorter styles of coats – something above the knee is best to compliment your frame. For flattering coats, go for styles that are belted or single breasted for simplicity yet not over fitted.
Magazines nowadays are packed with women over six feet tall, with endless limbs and lithe physiques – but Miss Williams says you don’t need to have the figure of a supermodel to pull off a myriad of fashion-forward looks. Take it from these petite fashionistas, whose wardrobes are the envy of all!
At 1.57cm, the diminutive star of Desperate Housewives has perfected glamorous style, nailing a myriad of off-duty and red carpet looks. When she’s promoting films or speaking out as an advocate of one of her favourite charities, Eva likes to go for form-fitting dresses – often courtesy of best friend Victoria Beckham. When she’s running errands around LA, she chooses boyfriend jeans and the coolest of accessories – with heels, of course!
Ever wondered how some of the well-known fashion brands spend their money?
Besides reinvesting in new designs & product development and expensive ad campaigns, I’ve found out some Brands that put some money being their social responsibility policies. I will share these with you throughout the week. Here’s the first.
#Bottega Veneta’s history / identity are linked close to the Veneto region in the northeast of Italy… the heart of its social initiatives. In 2011 the brand assisted in launching the Women’s Mountain Cooperatives – a charity that benefits a large number of women who are in unemployment in the Alto Astico and Posina mountain. They’ve helped build two artisan #leather-making workshops and each employ 30 people. 2012 saw the brand financed a three-month cause in bag design and product development, was gave students from IUAV university in Venice the opportunity to attend and three students from Japan who was affected by the tsunami. New courses kicks off in Jan 2015.
Makes you think as an individual, what can I do? What little thing can I do everyday to show social responsibilities. So as you go about your day, think socially and give something back.
It’s time to get ready for winter, and what better way to do it than to invest in a few key pieces for your new winter wardrobe. When deciding on what staple pieces you need this season, it is important to think about what particular looks suit you, and how to get the best value for your money by buying pieces that can be interchanged with each other to make a whole host of different outfits. High-quality online retailers such as Miss Williams have a huge variety of gorgeous clothes to choose from – the key is to have fun with your outfits and enjoy what you’re wearing.
So to make it a bit easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of some staple items that should be seen in every girl’s wardrobe this winter.
“One should never give a women anything she can’t wear in the morning.” – Oscar Wilde
So I can across this little Q&A with Diane Von Fürstenberg, and I thought I’d share it with you guys.
Q: What was your inspiration for the wrap dress?
A: I was really very young, in my early twenties. I worked in and Italian factory and I loved printed jersey. It started as a little wrap top like a ballerina would wear, and then one day I just had this idea to make it into a dress.
It is the most traditional dress, like a kimono, but it was revolutionary because it was made out of jersey and it was tight to the body.
Q: What is your secret to staying young?
A: I love life and I live it fully.
Q: What is your favourite item of clothing?
A: Whatever I am wearing at the moment. There is that moment in the morning when you put on the right thing and it somehow feels like the right thing.
Q: The secret to style?
A: you have to figure out where you are going and what yo have to do and then just go for it.
This year the wrap dress turned 40 years old, and it’s still a go to piece for most women. It’s classic, comfortable and very feminine.
We the wrap dress 🙂
Jane Mallory Birkin, OBE (born 14 December 1946) is an English actress and singer based in France.
She is perhaps best known for her relationship with Serge Gainsbourgin the 1970s and being the namesake of the popular Hermes Birkin bag.
Hermès Ostrich Birkin Bag
It came about in 1981, Hermès when the chief executive, at the time, Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Jane Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. Birkin placed her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat, but the contents fell to the floor, leaving her scrambling to collect the contents. She explained to Dumas how difficult it is to find a leather weekend bag she liked. In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her: the Birkin bag,based on a 1982 design. She used the bag for herself for quite some time until developing tendinitis, switching to other types at that point.
How amazing it would be to have something that timeless named after you or created for you.
I say this week go out there and be an inspiration and create!

Knock-’em-dead Evening dress:
You just need one.
Dressing a petite figure can be challenging. Many shorter women find it difficult to find fashionable clothes that really compliment their height. Miss Williams is an online boutique that specialises in selling petite ladies clothing. Every garment is hand-picked by the Miss Williams especially. The creator of the company is an avid blogger who regularly writes about petite fashion and really knows her stuff when it comes to dressing well as a shorter lady.
A tailored blazer is versatile, trans-seasonal and a must have for ones wardrobe. You can wear it at the office, when you want to elevate the t-shirt and jeans look, and adds a pinch of of elegance when paired with a dress.
“Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.” — Epictetus
Happy Monday everyone!
Today I wanted to share three clever fashion tips to add a few inches
to create a tall look (if you want)
1. Go Full-length
Yes, petite ladies can wear floor-kissing skirts and dresses.
Makes us look taller!
2. Go Short
If you’re petite —when it comes to skirts and dresses—you should either go floor length,
or super-short (try to calf-length and knee-lengths).
Mini-skirts creates the illusion of a longer leg.
3. Go Flare
Fitted jeans with a flare at the bottom create the illusion of longer legs. You want the hem hitting top of your shoes (heels, of course!).
Top tip: keep the fit of the jean super-slim through the leg, and waistband hits your natural waist.
“Has a woman who know she was well-dressed ever caught a cold?” Friedrich Nietzsche
I know, none of us ever imagined that this would actually happened, but alas it has. Mattel have teamed with Karl Lagerfeld and release last month this barbie made in the great designers own image. On released day Net-a-Porter is said to have sold $200k worth of the dolls!
I wonder if he’s designed one in petite size 🙂
Bonjour Petites Mesdemoiselles!
It sure feels like autumn, huh? I have gradually started packing away my summer apparels and said Au revoir été 😦
Never mind, autumn brings with it some wonderful and fashionable looks.
