This has been a long time coming and I’m so excited to share my Petite Jeans Style Guide with you today! As a petite gal, it can feel straight up impossible to find jeans that fit just right without having to tailor them or cuff them. I do love cuffing my jeans, but sometimes you just want a clean sleek hem or now with the raw hem trend, that detail becomes obsolete if the jean is cuffed.
Along with the length of jeans comes the problem of having a smaller waist, but a thicker booty and thighs. It’s a struggle finding jeans that fit in all the right places. So in my petite jeans style guide I’m going to share the jean brands that work wonderfully for petite ladies (which most brands constitute is 5’4″ and under) along with stores that carry petite jean lines. If you’re not petite, I would still recommend these jean brands (unless it’s an exclusively petite brand), considering their quality and fit is great!

My most recent obsession is BDG Jeans. After trying on my first pair, I immediately went online and ordered another pair the next day. I have a feeling this brand will be my newest obsession. My husband can vouch for my excitement when I ran out of the room and exclaimed “They fit! They fit! And I don’t have to roll them!” He was actually pretty excited for me too, because he’s the one that has to hear my moaning and groaning when it comes to clothes always being big on me. (love ya babe!) Another thing I love about these jeans is the price tag-they cost only $59-$79. That’s amazing. Considering I would happily pay double if it meant the jeans fit me perfectly, which these do.

Next up is ASOS Petite. I think by now you know my love for ASOS runs deep. However, since they take a bit long to ship out orders (being UK-based) it took forever for me to try out their ASOS Petite jeans thinking I’d have to do some returning. And sure enough my first two orders didn’t fit, because I ordered the jeans with the same mindset I have when I order regular-sizing jeans. These jeans are truly petite. I mean little everywhere, including thigh and butt area. The first two jeans I ordered from ASOS Petite fit me perfectly length wise, but I couldn’t get them past my butt. For this reason, I would size-up one size with this brand. The next time I ordered one size larger than my usual size, they fit perfectly and the length wasn’t affected.
ASOS PETITE Jeans sizing: Runs a size small if curvy or athletic build. I think a slim build would be true to size.
Ann Taylor petite denim is surprisingly some of the least expensive pieces on the entire site at $89 and the quality is great. This petite jean line isn’t my absolute favorite fitting jeans, but as mentioned before, the quality is awesome. And what I mean by not being my favorite fit has more to do with my curves and less about the tailoring, because the tailoring is actually done very well. If you have hips on the narrow side and a smaller bum, I think these would be a great option for you. What I do really like about the Ann Taylor petite denim line is that fact that they include 25″ inseam options which are great for petite ladies who want their jeans to hit their ankle just right.

My favorite thing about Loft petite jeans is the fit on my tush and the length. I like that if a pair of jeans is suppose to hit at my ankle, that they do. The Loft petite jeans actually do just that and I don’t have to cuff them. My favorite Loft petite jeans are the styles that hit lower on the waist and sit more on the hip. I also love Loft Petite chino pants and crop pants, they fit so cute!

I hope this Petite Jeans Style Guide helps you find a brand of jeans that works perfectly for your petite self!
Also, please note how many word variations for “butt” I used in this post. haha!
