The Perfect Jeans for Petite Women


This blog is for petite ladies who are on the hunt for a new pair of jeans. Shopping for denim isn’t always easy. In fact, sometimes it’s the last thing we want to do. It might even be your least favorite kind of shopping and we don’t blame you! There are so many styles, fits and rises, that it can be overwhelming and outright disappointing when you try on pair after pair, leaving you with nothing but a pile of “definitely nots.”

Keep reading to see our three favorite denim styles for petite women.

Dark Wash, High-Rise, Raw Hem Jeans

Paige Denim is known for their high quality styles that last. When you find the perfect fit, it’s easy to say yes to investing in what Paige has to offer.

Why It Works

The flattering, high-rise waistline and cropped hemline make this the perfect pair for our petite clients. We can all agree that there is something comforting about high-waisted jeans. They make every woman look good! Dark washes are slimming and can easily be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for Saturday morning errands. The cropped, raw hem is not only incredibly on trend, but will hit petite women right at the ankle, making for an all-around flattering fit. No hemming necessary!


Light Wash, Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are in for spring and ideal for petite ladies. The relaxed fit will flatter your figure and help you accomplish that laid back look that everyone loves to flaunt in the warmer months.

Why It Works

A high-waisted fit is always a great option for petite women. Flaunting high-rise jeans will give your legs an elongated look, giving the illusion that you are taller than you are. This also adds a natural slimming effect. Who can say no to that? Pair these with your favorite slides, mules or a block heel for an added boost of height and confidence.


Mid-Rise, Ripped, Ankle Jeans

Hudson creates gorgeous denim that never disappoints. Their styles are comfortable, soft and have a natural stretch that makes them great for daily wear. The Hudson Nico is a mid-rise skinny jean with a modest rip at the knee.

Why It Works

Every woman needs a pair of “go to” jeans that she can reach for on moment’s notice; a pair that she can rely on. A classic pair of mid-rise, ankle denim is the perfect everyday look for petite ladies. They hit right at the ankle and provide a soft, comfortable high-rise fit. While most high-rise denim can feel stiff and uncomfortable, The Nico hugs you in all the right places, while providing enough comfort for everyday wear. If we had to bet on the next pair of jeans to add to your wardrobe, we’d put money on these!
