Male Execs Pretty Sure Assault’s Not a Problem in Fashion
Terry Richardson

Every industry is examining its own role in turning a blind eye to its particular Harvey Weinsteins, and fashion is no exception. On Wednesday, Women’s Wear Daily published a story about sexual harassment in the fashion industry as it related to advertising, specifically discussing what it’s like on set during photo shoots. The story quotes only male executives.

One after the other, each said they’d never witnessed sexual harassment, assault, or abuse on set. For example, “We did crazy antics to get crazy pictures, but never abused anybody.” Collectively, the men conclude that fashion doesn’t have the same problem as, say, Hollywood or Silicon Valley.

The story is full of quotes like “I don’t think anything happened and we were worried about one thing — do great pictures” and “I was under the opinion that all these things had gotten better.” One executive said that he walked in on a model having sex with fashion photographer Terry Richardson, against whom a laundry list of accusations has been leveled, but didn’t think anything of it because “I don’t know what the relationship was.” Another mentioned that he’s hired “abusive stylists,” but clarified: “Sexually abusive? Maybe emotionally abusive. They take it out on the girls and guys and they took it out on me. I always embraced that banter back and forth. The best ones really believed in what they were doing.”

At the top, the piece mentions that activist and model Cameron Russell invited those in her industry to share their stories via Instagram; following hundreds of replies, Russell has spent the last week sharing screenshots of the responses on her account, while women at large have been encouraged to speak out about their own experiences using the hashtag #MeToo. Regardless of what it was meant to do — WWD declined to provide a comment to Racked — this piece reads like a less-than-thoughtful response from the industry’s obviously naive male contingent. The paper, which has long covered and championed a female-driven industry, does not even challenge the anecdotes. The Richardson one, for example, is followed by this quote: “Terry never abused anybody when I worked with him.” Countless women have repeatedly accused the photographer of assault.

Choosing to cover sexual assault and not include the voices of women adds further fuel to this ongoing problem. As advertising executive Cindy Gallop tweeted, “all-male interviews = biggest reinforcement sexual harassment is rife.” —Chavie Lieber, senior reporter

Where to Shop If You’re Short

If you’re on the shorter end of the height spectrum, you’re familiar with the challenges of finding pants that don’t need hemming, sleeves that aren’t far too long, and clothing that generally doesn’t line up with your proportions. Fortunately, many brands have expanded their offerings in the petite department. But unfortunately, most of that progress has happened online, with many stores still only carrying a fraction — if any — of their petite collections in their physical spaces.

For now, the internet is your best bet. Here’s a list of the best places to shop online for petite clothing, broken down by category: the best for going out, for work, for jeans, for petite plus, and the best for a little bit of everything. If you want to see even more options, check out the full guide here.

Best for Going Out

After introducing a petite capsule line (with the totally badass name “Don’t Call Me Cute”) in 2015, Reformation has recently made its hip, indie styles available in a permanent petite collection. Jumpsuits can be found in lots of perfect styles for weekend nights, like the Swiss jumpsuit that comes in bright colors and fun prints. There are also sexy-night-out dresses to shop, like this leopard mini-dress and this sassy ’90s-inspired red number with spaghetti straps and a ruffled hem.

Best for Work

If you spend most of your time in an office setting, you’re going to need some professional clothes that don’t make you look like you’re playing dress-up in your mom’s ’80s powersuits. J.Crew makes many of its work-ready pieces in petite sizes, like the Résumé Dress, which can work in the warmer months on its own or with a blazer and tights in the winter. Complete your 9-to-5 wardrobe with separates like the Campbell Blazer, the Preston Pant, and this stretchy cotton pencil skirt.  

If you work in a creative office, check out Eileen Fisher for small-sized versions of the drapey, oversized minimalist styles that typically leave petites drowning in extra fabric. This wool crepe box top and this seamless ballet neck tunic are made just for smaller proportions, and with a shorter inseam and slimmer cut, these wide-leg ankle pants are a great option for shorter ladies looking to try out the culottes trend.

Best for Denim

Known for its covetable denim fits, Madewell recently introduced short-length jeans to the excitement of petites everywhere. The high-rise skinnies are now available in a petite-friendly 26.5” inseam, and these button-fly frayed edge flares will actually be a crop length on petites.

Although it doesn’t specifically make petite sizes, Japanese brand Uniqlo offers free in-store tailoring on any jeans over $20 (if the pair you buy costs less, it’s only a $5 fee), and they’re usually ready within a few hours. The ultra-stretch jeans come in pretty much any wash you want, and the brand also makes on-trend styles, like these distressed slim boyfriend jeans and these slim-leg high-rise cigarette jeans.  

Best for Petite Plus

It’s a common misunderstanding that petite means tiny all over, but there are also many of us who are short and curvy. Launched to meet the needs of curvy women seeking trendy and stylish options, plus-size brand Eloquii also caters to the petite plus market. In a bold color, this pencil skirt brings a pop of fun to an everyday work look, or go boho in this embroidered peasant blouse.

Best for a Little Bit of Everything

For one-stop petite shopping, major department stores like Nordstrom and Macy’s carry a number of small-size garments in all different categories. From Nordstrom, choices include this dress-it-up or dress-it-down shimmery pleated skirt from Vince Camuto, a wool and cashmere cardigan from Halogen, and classic Citizens of Humanity black skinny jeans. The Macy’s selection ranges from faux-fur-trimmed coats from Via Spiga to cute printed day dresses from Michael Michael Kors.
