Best dressed 2012 - pint-sized fashion plate Rachel Bilson

This year saw the return of one of our fave fashionistas to the small screen. In Hart of Dixie Rachel Bilson stars as a big city girl, toting Chanel and polished to perfection. In real life she's just like that but with a fat dose of cool casul too.

Bilson hopped aboard the palazzo pants train in a pair of summery coral trews at a party thrown by the Sunglasses Hut. A simple white vest and Bilson-fave black blazer gave her floaty trews structure.

After hanging out with Karl Lagerfeld when she filmed that slick magnum ad earlier this year, Rach must have become pretty friendly because she's been showing off some serious Chanel action! This sequin and feather dress looked gorgeous on the tiny star. A boxy Chanel clutch and Casadei heels finished her winter princess look.

Are you petite like Miss Bilson and terrified of wearing a maxi skirt? Take tips from this lovely look. Add heels for height and a fitted jacket to show off your shape.

Proving Chanel doesn't have to be ladylike by slipping on a cool biker jacket and spaceage silver Brian Atwood peep toes.

Doing transitional style very well in a cute tomato tunic dress, cosy Burberry Brit duffel coat and teal Shoemint heels. She designed those shoes herself!

For a trip to the shops in the sunshine Rach popped on a loose Rag & Bone dress and comfy Rebecca Minkoff sandals.

Bilson can rock a pair of pocket-showing cut-offs like no other. Add a pair of tan booties and a slouchy tee and she's good to go! It would be rude not to point out how fit her boyfriend Hayden Christenson is looking, right?

At a bash in LA Rachel chose tiered Chanel and satin heels making her look like a pretty fairy.

A little bit masculine, a lot gorge. We especially love the feminine neck tie.

As a petite lass Bilson cuffs her boyfriend jeans and adds pretty heels to ensure she never looks like she's drowning in fabric. She also keeps her proportions right with a hip-length tailored jacket and printed Theyskens' Theory top. Clever.

Oh we can totes see ourselves copying this Bilson look.  Take one pair of black skinnies, a cosy biscuit knit and sharp blazer then add pointed courts (Rach's are Kate Spade but we're sure a pair of Toppers ones would work a treat) and a red bag et voila! The House of Harlow bunting necklace adds sweet charm.

For the premiere of Fun Size Rachel looked pretty fun size herself in a cute one-shoulder Preen frock with taupe pointy courts.
