I'm 5'2", and These Are My Favorite Tops

Welcome to the second official installment of my latest series: I’m 5’2”, and… I say official because I feel like I’ve been writing for my fellow petite girls my entire career, but I guess it was about time we made it legit. A few weeks ago, I shared my favorite jeans, so I thought the natural next step would be the best tops to wear them with.

As I mentioned last time, while my height is nothing to complain about, it has, at times, posed its challenges when it comes to shopping and finding things that fit me in the best way possible—especially with tops, which are among the more difficult items to tailor. So today I’m sharing my favorite tops that seem to fit just right. From tees to blouses to crop tops to knits, there’s something for everyone and a few repeat brands I suggest you take note of. Simply continue on to shop my picks.

Now that you’ve got the top(s), see the best jeans to wear them with.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
