SheFinds Solution: Short girls, get a leg up

June 29, 2006 by SheFindsErin

I’m a total denimista and one of the privileged few who gets to sport jeans at work, but I’ve noticed — as I’ve become more of a denim connoisseur — that us short girls get the short end of the stick with ever-lengthening inseams. If I’m going to be dropping $170-plus on a kickin’ pair of jeans, I don’t want the cuffs to be frayed from dragging on the sidewalks, or to have holes in them where the heels of my boots have ripped through (and embarrassingly tripped me up, I’m sure). And forget taking them to a tailor to be shortened. It takes a skilled — and expensive — hand to preserve that natural-hem look and vintage feel that I paid for in the first place. With companies like Ernest Sewn introducing denims with 34- and 35-inch inseams, what are the short gals to do? One option is the ingenious Heels2Flats system from British denim diva Radcliffe. All of their jeans come with four silver “cufflinks” that fit into invisible holes in the side seams to adjust the length. Wear them at their shortest length with flats during the day, and let them hang to their full 34.5” with your stilettos at night.
