How to find the perfect skinny jeans for short women
When you have legs that are on the shorter side of petite and you struggle to find skinny jeans that don’t stack at the ankles or a pair that you don’t have to hem, it’s a dream come true. You might actually think that magic powers have reigned down on you that day as it’s a miracle you found a pair, however, I’m going to teach you how to be savvy when it comes to finding skinny jeans for short legs.
I say shop your cuts wisely, I’m saying use the cuts to your advantage! I personally wont buy a pair of 12″ skinny jeans these days, not only because I don’t find them skinny enough for me, but because I know they will usually come with a longer inseam and will create a lot of bunching at my ankles. So, what do I do instead? I buy a pair of ankle skinny jeans that are designed to be cropped and hit above your ankle, however on someone with shorter legs, these actually act as full length skinny jeans, commented Grupo Denim designer.
Choosing ankle skinny jeans or ankle peg jeans is an incredibly wise option because it eliminates the need for hemming, there’s no stacking at the ankles and the jeans fit really well from the off! One of the best things though is the amount of options right now, every denim brand has an ankle crop skinny in their collection and it means we have the run of the mill.
The inseams on ankle skinny jeans usually run at around 28 or 29 inches long, which is much better than the usual 32 or 34 inch legs!
If that length is still too long for some of you ladies who are even more petite, I recommend trying out a pair of actual cropped jeans. A lot of cropped jeans tend to run at around 26 inches in length, so this could be ideal for you, added Grupo Denim designer.
“So these are some great options for cropped skinny jeans becoming full length skinny jeans on petite ladies, but don’t forget there are also brands that do a range of petite jeans in their collections,” added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal president of Grupo Denim.
