Jeans with Straight Legs for Short Women
Jeans with straight legs are universally flattering for short women because the legs form a vertical line that makes petites look longer and leaner. To make the most of this style, also select jeans with a dark wash rather than lighter or stonewashed blue denim.
These petite jeans from Nordstrom have straight legs and come in a dark wash. The inseam length is 30″.
Skinny Jeans for Slender Petites
Skinny jeans look best on tall, thin women, but petite women who are very slender can wear skinny jeans too. Skinny jeans can look good on petites, who have very slender hips and legs and relatively long legs for their short stature. Manufacturers have finally realized that petites want the most popular styles available to them, so finally, you’ll be able to find truly skinny jeans that are sized especially for petites.

Boot Cut Jeans for Curvy Short Women
Bootcut jeans are best suited to short women with triangle or hourglass figures because they help balance curvy hips. If you wear boot-cut jeans, choose ones with a slight bootcut rather than fuller bell bottoms with a wide hem. More width will detract from the long, lean line that short women need to establish to look taller.
Gap’s petite bootcut jeans have a dark wash, a bootcut, and a waistband that is shaped to fit the body. Compare prices on bootcut jeans for petites.
Tapered Jeans to Look Curvier
Women can achieve a curvier appearance by wearing tapered jeans, which emphasize their hips. This is great for short women with an inverted triangle or rectangle body shape because it makes their hips look narrower. Also, embroidery or other details on the back pockets of the jeans can make the look even better.
Lands’ End’s petite tapered jeans have a classic waist fit and a classic style. They are a rich, rinsed, dark indigo color.

Jeans for Short Women Over 40
Women under 40 who are short can avoid the dreaded “mom jeans” by using one of the many styles that technology has made possible. Blending spandex or another stretchy material with engineered styling that smooths and lifts helps women of a certain age look stylish in their jeans.
These jeans by Not Your Daughter’s Jeans from Nordstrom feature soft fabric, boot-cut styling, cotton/spandex fabric for stretch, and crisscross fabric panels that flatten the tummy and lift the rear.
The jeans’ inseam is 30″.
Trouser Jeans for Petite Plus

Should Petites wear mid-rise jeans?
