The Winter Coats Petites Always Look Amazing In
All we want to do is wrap ourselves in the biggest, warmest parka we can find, right now. But for women 5'3'' and under, that's almost never an option.

Lands' End Petite Squall Insulated Winter Parka
The warmest jackets don't have to be the bulkiest. This sleek design is padded with extra insulation and the jacket's lining includes a Cozy ThermaCheck-300 fleece lining for maximum coziness that won't weigh you down. The best part: you can shop this baby in black, red, and teal, too.
Marrakech Sherpa Jacket
Here's another lined jacket that will keep you warm with the extra bulk. The rich color is striking enough to make a statement, but subtle enough to wear with everything.
Everlane The ReNew Lightweight Puffer
Puffers are tricky and can easily swallow a tiny frame. But not Everlane's slim design. The sleek jacket has quickly become a fan favorite, thanks to the 100 percent recycled PrimaLoft insulation.
Asos Design Petite Skirted Duffle
Here's a longer jacket that perfectly stops above the knee. We love the fit-and-flare silhouette, which will also accentuate the waistline.
Topshop Petite Leopard Faux Fur Coat
A timeless print like leopard is always a smart investment, and this one is designed with the petite frame in mind.
Theory Wool & Cashmere Belted Robe Jacket
Wrap up in a short wool and cashmere jacket liket this one, which will help you stand out with its robe-like shape and kimono sleeves.
Gap ColdControl Puffer Bomber
A puffer that hits at the hips is always a great move for petites. And this one wins extra bonus points with high-performance insulation.
Banana Republic Trench Coat
Banana Republic's timeless trench is a must-have for petites. Not only is it water-resistant, but it has a slim silhouette throughout the chest, waist, and arms.
