Short girls, rejoice! These are the best denim styles for you. While we staunchly believe that you should forget just about everything you've been told about what not to wear just because you're a wee bit vertically challenged (go for a midi skirt at work and don't be afraid to wear flats out to a party!), it is still true that there are those styles that will instantly make you look—and feel—decidedly taller. Jeans are no exception to this rule, and considering how much we love the off-duty wardrobe staple, it's about time we talk about how to make them work best for you. For the ultimate in short-girl style inspiration, we look to some of the chicest of the style set, below.
At 5’ tall, Kourtney Kardashian knows a thing or two about how to dress a petite frame. With a slim thigh, a flare jean will elongate you legs—no matter your height. Channel your inner runway model and pair your denim with a chunky heel to give your flare a little bit more length.
Miroslava Duma is a petite 4'11", but has been spotted in little other than denim as of late. Most styles she dons have a flattering high waist, which continues the line of her leg upward for an elongating look that looks good whatever the kind of jean may be.
Ankle Crop Straight Legs:
Amanda Seyfried, another petite denim lover, stands tall at about 5'3". Her jean of choice? The ankle crop. Seyfried knows the power of the most flattering silhouette out there, showing off your ankles just enough to make your legs look longer and, as a bonus, giving you a bit of French-girl chic.
Dark Wash Skinnies:
Ashley Olsen, at 5'3", knows dark-wash skinny jeans are universally flattering. When it comes to jeans for petite girls, the slimmer the better—especially in the thigh and hip areas. Keep the eye traveling up and down, lengthening those legs of yours, with a pair that stays skinny throughout.
