The Best Jeans For Petite Girls

June 29, 2017 by Blair Donovan

As a fellow petite human, I know the woes of jean shopping better than anyone. The dressing room and I do not get along when I try on jeans. Too long, too short, too tight, too small in the waist—I could go on and on. The bottom drawer of my dresser is filled to the brim with more pairs of jeans than most people should ever own, mainly because I could never find the perfect pair and had to settle for whatever I could get my hands on. Jeans are such a coveted wardrobe item that it would be unheard of to not have a wearable pair. Jean shopping makes me want to give up and call it a day, but I can’t leave empty-handed when I need a new pair.

There’s pros and cons of shopping for jeans online and in-store. While you can try on as many pairs as you want in the store and immediately know whether they fit or not, jeans online show how they look on a model. This has been an effective method for me recently. I like to look at the model’s height measurements and see how the jeans fall on her. If the model is 8 feet tall with legs for days and the jeans she’s wearing come past her ankles, then I know those aren’t the right match for me.

Either way you choose to shop, check out five clothing brands that have mastered the art of creating jeans for petite girls. Because you shouldn’t have to roll the bottom of your pants just to get them to fit.

Zara:

Zara has a little bit of everything for every style, and they also accommodate a variety of heights with their jeans. If you’re shopping online, look out for cropped jeans specifically. This model is 5’10,” so you know that if these pants fall mid-calf, they’ll fit your much shorter legs like a charm.

.American Eagle:

I’ve been a tried-and-true American Eagle jeans fan for as long as I can remember. The fit of their skinny jeans has changed throughout the years, but the “Short” version of their pants is always reliable. On their website, you can choose “Short” for any size of any pant. I also love their skinnies because they hug my body without cutting off my circulation. Make sure you check out their flare jeans. Paired with heels or booties, this outfit will give you illusion of a taller figure.

J. Crew:

J. Crew’s cropped denim collection also has plenty of selections for petite women. J. Crew came to the rescue with the perfect pair of white jeans for my small frame, thus finally ending my years-long hunt for the perfect pair, and I’ve never looked back. Most of their cropped denim comes in loose and casual styles, so even us petite girls can stay in the trendy jeans loop.

Banana Republic:

I love BR because they have a specific petite section, both in-stores and online. You can get the jeans of your dreams, and even find a cute top to go along with it, all in the same place. This pair screams casual Friday in the office by day, drinks with the girls by night. These are also made with a stretchy material that’s perfect for big butts.

Topshop:

This on-trend brand also has a petite section. I’m a huge fan of high-waisted denim, especially because it gives you the illusion of longer legs when tucked in with a top, and Topshop is no stranger to this pant style. The frayed hem gives these jeans that extra something special, and you won’t even have to roll them up!
