A Guide To Wearing Jeans For Petites

Friday, July 4, 2014
Hashtag #shortpeopleproblems .... Sigh , this is for all the ladies who are 5" 4" and shorter .  Scenario : You go into your favorite store and see the perfect pair of jeans, you try them on and they fit perfectly .. you look down and you see "bunching" at your ankles. I know that feeling all too well. Here is a quick guide on how to wear jeans.

Jada Pinkett Smith
Tailor Fit ! I seriously had no idea ( when I was younger) that I could buy Jeans then get them altered and they would still look good. Jeans to me at that time was a really course non stretchy material and I thought If I got them cut it would destroy the stitching. Boy was I wrong! If you are a shortie .. your Tailor or "Dressmaker" as we say in Jamaica will be one of your best friends. Jeans are supposed to fit you. They should fit your shape all the way to your ankles.

Buy Your Correct Fit : Jeans have been revolutionized! Stores like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe and WetSeal now have a line that caters specifically to Petite people. Petite sizes will range from 0 to 2 and this is if your waist is between 24 " - 26". I would also recommend staying away from the boot cut Jeans that have those really wide legs .. they tend to overlap and you can find your self stepping on your Jeans. Skinny Jeans are your best friend .. they will make you look taller and the fit is always perfect.

Accessorize Wisely: My very good friend from University once said "shoes make the outfit". I'm now seeing where that makes sense depending on the choice of outfit. If you pair shoes that are similar in color to your jeans it can create the illusion that you are taller and leaner. Also, the length of the heel and the shape of the shoe can make a huge difference ... Skinny jeans and heels go together like Mac & Cheese. If you are not a heels girl, opt for pointy toes flats instead of round toe.



If you are Petite , what are some Jeans Trick you use?
