Mother Nature is taking her sweet time with the warm weather, so we're willing spring into existence with our shopping. At the very top of our warm-weather wish list is a flowy maxi-dress from Reformation. For those of us who identify as "fun-size" (hear, hear!), that breezy, bohemian look requires a three-to-five-day lead time and a visit to our tailor. Reformation has heard the shorties' cry for ankle-skimming frocks that actually skim our ankles and not the sidewalk. The cult L.A. brand, which has a history of answering our prayers, is introducing a line for ladies 5'4" and under, called "Don't Call Me Cute," filled with maxi-dresses, midi-skirts, and jumpsuits that — get this — fit like they're supposed to.
The nine-piece collection includes Reformation staples like breezy dresses and matching sets in brighter hues than expected from the brand, including burnt-orange and teal. Die-hards will recognize some familiar silhouettes and details, like the flower straps of the Jillian Dress and the deep neckline of the Dean Jumpsuit, which make (petite) appearances in the new line. Prices start at $138 for a skirt and cap out at $248 for a jumpsuit. We're giving our tailors a break this year, and investing in spring pieces that actually fit. Revolutionary.
