Find the Perfect Jeans for Shorter Legs

admin

May 17, 2019

Not everyone has the time to shop for jeans and try on every pair they find, only to find out that the fit is wrong. For petite women, finding the perfect jeans for shorter legs can be quite the challenge, but we’re here to help. We’ll show you what to look for in the perfect pair of denim, from the wash to the rise and more.

The Best Denim Wash for Short Legs

Choosing a more solid wash helps lengthen your legs, at least visually. When you have heavy fading or whiskering, it breaks up your legs, giving the appearance that they’re shorter than they are. If you also have thicker thighs, fading will draw more attention to this area instead of leading the eye along the entire leg. Dark wash denim is especially flattering, but most any solid wash of denim will do wonders to give you legs for days.

The Best Denim Rise for Short Legs

You can never go wrong with high-waisted jeans. Whether you’re a fan of waist or prefer a mid-to-high rise jean, take advantage. The higher the waistline, the longer your legs will look. Denim that hits at the hip will draw attention to the widest part of your lower half and cut into that visual length you’re trying to achieve.

The Best Denim Length for Short Legs

This is the most challenging part of finding the perfect jeans for shorter legs and likely involves knowing a good tailor. To achieve the best look and fit, you should buy jeans that hit as close to your ankle as possible. Remember, we don’t want to skimp on taking up visual space and creating more length where there’s less of it. A little longer is always better than a little too short in this case.
