Dannii Minogue PETITES for Target Designer Fashion Collection

Those of us around 160cm and under are referred to as “petites” (from the French word) and I must say – we are not very well catered to in the corporate wear space. The lengths of pants, sleeves and hemlines can be too long and engulf us. Finding a good tailor (which can get expensive) or learning to DIY to shorten clothing becomes a must!

Dannii Minogue PETITES for Target

Dannii Minogue PETITES for Target Which is why it is so exciting to see that singer/business woman, Dannii Minogue, has brought her brand of rockstar-meets-ladylike to her designer collection for Target just released today. This means sparkle, bold pattern and splashes of leather-look fabric and even genuine suede cut into classic tailored shapes that won’t date too quickly and will mostly work for both the office as well as the weekend.

While I believe in mixing and matching clothing from different brands, petites will do well putting together some basics like these:

For the office

Business Chic Dannii Minogue PETITES Target Style

Those in Contemporary Business Wear workplaces may choose to employ the playful take on the trench and staples like the white shirt and tailored pants – try keeping the white shirt unbuttoned and adding fab heels and hair to create a modern but professional look. Those on Casual Friday or Smart Casual workplaces might like to switch up the black pants for indigo denim (also available in black). I’ve thrown in this knit for a splash of colour, great for Smart Casuals although it looks like it might be chunkier than I usually like for a more conservative workplace.

All dressed up

There is a pencil skirt in the collection but I feel like I want to try that on myself before recommending to others. So let’s take a look at two of  the dresses in the collection which could be styled for work: Business Chic Dannii Minogue PETITES Target Work Dress The stunning Emerald Sheath Dress worn by Minogue in the campaign shows up on the online store as a much lighter hue- I’m interested to see what it and the exposed zip (on the back) looks like in real life. | Try layering the collection shirt underneath the Dannii Minogue Petites Metallic Cocktail Dress.

Creative Casual or work from home?

Creative Smart Casual Dannii Minogue PETITES Target Style Looking for a stylish alternative to tracksuit pants (my ongoing quest!)? Dannii Minogue Petites Black Lounge Pants can be dressed down or up using the sparkly Dannii Minogue Petites Tile Blue Print Blouse . Simply pop on heels to complete this glam but comfortable look!

The verdict:

I did see the collection when was shown earlier this year at VAMFF and my Melbourne in Fashion co-host, Meagan Harding, has published photos from that show over on her blog, Style Farm – check it out. That said, I’m saving my full verdict until I have a closer look and try some things on. I’m really interested in the pants in the range – there are LOTS of great styles in this range. And while I wish I could have included one of the blazers in my round-up, again I want to take a closer look at the fabric- particularly the black blazer that has large “leather-look” panels.  I’ll keep you updated!


The Dannii Minogue PETITES collection is available online and selected Target stores.
