As a petite girl myself, I know how struggling it can be to find the right pair of jeans. But as we all know, jeans are a staple piece and should be part of everyone‘s wardrobe. By now I’ve found my safe haven when it comes to snagging solid denim and I’m breaking it down for my fellow short girls. While you’re here, be sure to shop some petite-sized denim that I handpicked myself below!
Find The Right Retailers
Unfortunately, not all retailers cater to the needs of us petite ladies. By this point, you’ve likely experienced what it’s like to walk into a store with great jeans on display, only to later learn that they won’t work for your body type. Do your research and find some retailers that carry petite denim or full petite collections. Some of my personal favorites are Reformation, Topshop, and Revolve.
Don’t Ignore Your Waist
Just because you’ve found jeans with the right length for your height, doesn’t mean the mid-section will work for your figure. Try to find denim that comes in a range of waist and inseam sizes so that they can fit correctly from the waist down. This is especially important for shopping online, as the last thing you want to deal with is last-minute tailoring or returns and exchanges.
Stick To What You Know
If you know what denim already works for you, then stick to shopping at the same retailers or shop similar styles. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t try anything new, because of course, you should. However, if you’re just looking for another classic pair of jeans, then stick to your own rule of thumb.
