Petite Jeans You Can Wear Right Now (No Tailoring Required)
There’s really nothing quite as magical as finding a great-fitting pair of jeans. But if you’re 5 feet 3 inches or under, then you know it can be damn near impossible to score jeans that flatter you without some serious tailoring. In fact, you’ve probably spent more than a pretty penny having all of your denim shorted by half a foot at least. And you’ve also likely spent your fair share of time wearing jeans with tears, rips and other details hitting you in all the wrong places. So we rounded up the best petite jeans around.
The good news is that many of our favorite brands now offer jeans with shorter inseams perfect for petites. Not to mention denim designed specifically with petite frames in mind. Some brands even offer petite plus-size jeans. Which means finding your ideal fit is way easier than it’s ever been before. Whether you prefer wide leg, bootcut or skinny, faded or black, high rise or mid rise, there’s something to suit every taste.
Keep reading to see the most stylish petite jeans currently on offer. You can go ahead and pick up a few pairs. After all, you’re no longer going to have to worry about paying a hefty sum to your trusty tailor.
