The label, Black Milk, first got my attention when I saw my friend raving on about her “awesome Black Milk leggings” on Facebook. It became hard to ignore. At first I thought they’d be way too crazy to wear, but the idea of crazy- soon appealed to me. I got my first pair earlier this week and I have already worn them out three times!!
Are they ‘petite-friendly‘?
I ordered a size Small… Because sadly, I’m no longer an Extra Small :(… (I blame holidays and winter food)… Plus, I don’t like it when elastic on the hips are so tight it reveals my muffin-top- Haha. The measurements of these ‘Galaxy Blue leggings’ in inches, are as follows:
Waist – 27.5, Hips – 33, Thigh – 22, Calf – 13.4, Ankle – 8.25 and Length – 35.
Everywhere fit quite well on me, except perhaps the length. Which I guess, shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise since I’m quite short. From my hips to my ankles I measure 33 inches, so I had about 2 inches in extra length. Personally, I’m not too bothered about getting them altered- I like them looking a little scruffy.
Petite Styling Tips?
As these leggings already have a lot going on, I’d suggest keeping the rest simple. The easiest colour to wear it with… black! This way, the focus remains on the leggings and it doesn’t look OTT. You can dress them up or down, depending on your choice of footwear. My footwear of choice has always been Pretty-Small-Shoes. Petite flats for a casual look and powerful heels if you’re going out.
ps: I would also like to point out, that Black Milk Clothing is an Aussie label originating from Brisbane (my hometown) and now sells globally everyday. Was interviewed by NY Times during New York Fashion week (read it here!). It is currently collaborating with Jeffrey Campbell on a fabulous collection of printed shoes.
