Do you fuss about finding the perfect pair of jeans because you are petite? Well, with our guide on jeans tips for petite women, you will never go wrong again. . Going casual, in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers is very tempting, but you still want to look fashionably casual, correct? With these tips, you will be able to wear any of your jeans for any dress code.

Tip #1: The most important jeans tip every woman should know is that a tailor is their best friend. If you find a pair of jeans that fit perfectly at your waist, hips, butt, but is too long, get them! Head over to your tailor and adjust the height that best suits you.

Tip #2: Own different styles of jeans. Just because you love skinny jeans, doesn't mean you should only own skinnies. A great jeans tips for petite women is that you should try owning straight legs, as they create a lengthening illusion.

Tip #3: High waisted jeans are not only back on trend, but they will also give off a longer looking bottom half. Another bonus with the high waist jeans, is that they will suck in your tummy, and accentuate your curves and butt.

** This rule is not golden, not everyone looks good in high waist jeans. You need to try on several waist lengths to know what suits your body shape.

Tip #4: Cuffing your jeans is a great tip for petite women, especially that it can be done on the inside and the outside. Just choose whatever look you prefer and looks good. Personally, I think jeans cuffed on the inside that hit directly above your ankle are the best look for petite women.

Tip #5: Don't wear long sneakers with skinny jeans. When picking out jeans for petite women, I have noticed that flats and ballerinas go very well with skinnies. However, if you have small ankles and petite legs, you don't want to wear long sneakers and create the clown feet illusion. The best pair of shoes to wear with your jeans and your petite figure is a good pair of oxford shoes.
