Wide leg jeans for petites?

I wanted to respond to "anonymous" who asked about finding wide leg jeans for the shorties out there. Well, anon wide leg jeans may not be the best denim decision if you are short, you want to lengthen your lines to make you appear taller. I would suggest straight leg jeans in a dark rinse to elongate your legs or jeans with a crease down the front can also trick the eye into making you look slimmer and taller.

Victoria's Secret straight leg jean $59.50

American Eagle straight 77 stretch jean $49.50

I think that these could be flattering on a shorter person, it states that it's a wide leg but I don't think that it is as wide as the ones I show on my previous post. It also comes in a dark denim so it would also serve the purpose of making you look taller.

Let me know what you think!

Though I'm not petite, those are all cute jeans!

Here is a question I have: what sites can those of us with hips, butts, and thighs visit to find jeans that fit us...besides the "urban" lines with some type of symbol stitched on your butt? I love skinny jeans, but can't find a decent pair that doesn't show the crack of my butt when I sit, squeezes the crap out of my torso, or is too loose around the waist!

I feel you, Toni, it's hard to find jeans that fit great right off the rack. Most jeans have to be altered in some way, but if you start off with a great fit in the waist and/or leg you can get everything else tailored. Plus that 2% stretch in my 7 jeans make all the difference in the world!
