Petite Problems?

If you're petite like me, you know that dreaded feeling of going jean shopping and leaving the mall empty handed. You search for hours, only to find that every pair you try on is either way too long or way too short, and makes your hips look really wide and your legs look like stumps.

Well fret no more. After years of suffering through these dreaded "petite problems", I've found four pairs of "must have" jeans for every awesome-sized girl like me. With price points ranging from $20 to $200, there's something for every budget, and every lifestyle.
The "must have" jeans, if you're petite

Lucky Brand (Cate Stacked Skinny) - $119. My favorite thing about Lucky Brand jeans is how comfortable they are. They are super soft and the more you wear them, the better they fit (in my opinion). The length of the petite sizes is just right, so I don't mind spending a little more money on them because it's money I won't have to spend getting them hemmed.

Paige (Skyline Boot) - $169. Although it's the most expensive pair on the list, I highly recommend this jean. The boot cut style and length of the inseam makes your legs look long and lean. It's perfect to dress up because unlike many petite sized jeans, it's not too short when you pair it with heels.

Madewell (Rail Straight Jeans) - $80. These are my favorite go-to jeans, and I think the price can't be beat for the great quality they are. I bought them a few years ago and they still look brand new despite wearing them at least once a week. They're the perfect length to pair with flats.

Old Navy (The Diva Skinny Jeans) - $22. I love these jeans because the skinny fit allows you to dress them up or down. They sell for a really affordable price, and come in a variety of shades. My only warning is that the color can rub off on things, like your hands, so wash them in really cold water!

So, there you have it, the jeans every petite girl needs in her closet. Who's ready to do some shopping?

Being 5'3 and most of it being torso, makes it so hard to find jeans! I think Old Navy has the best selection for petites that I have found so far, but that doesn't stop me from checking out all these other brands! Thanks! :)

Old Navy really does have a great selection petite jeans. I'm at the odd 5'3 height where petite is almost always too short for me! Thanks for the post!

Thanks Girl!!! I alwasy dread jean shopping and am even embarrassed to say that I've worn jeggings because they didn't have to be hemmed. I'm 4'10 so usually even petite sizes have to be hemmed but I'm excited to try the bootcut jeans!!

I get mine from pac sun, american eagle, and some other random stores. I've been on the smaller size height and weight wise for a long time. ALL of my jeans have to be hemmed or cuffed.

thank you so much for this post! I am actually only 4'11" I wear the Old Navy "regular" capris as jeans. I'll have to try the Diva Skinny petities!

Love this post. I have some of the diva's in colors and prints because of their low price but I have been looking for some nice denim and white ones that don't cover my feet!
