2. Mid rise perfect boot jeans, $96, from Gap
The boot cut is generally a more forgiving cut, especially if you are looking to cheat your proportions and elongate your figure. Plus, a darker wash allows you to easily dress it up.
3. Rich indigo Jamie jeans, $89.90, from Topshop
Skinny jeans are awesome because you can literally wear them with everything and to every occasion that might arise! The most common mistake that petite women have is to buy regular-sized jeans and have the excess material scrounge up at their ankles. This not only looks sloppy, it actually makes you look shorter and stumpy.
Which is why we recommend these jeans from Topshop. They graze the ankles, and fit you like a glove.

6. Black embellished Frankie jeans, $76.90, from Dorothy Perkins
One of the woes of being petite is that most of the time, you have to lop off a good chunk of the hemline, which means that anything interesting that happens below the knees automatically get’s truncated.
Which is why you’ll love these embellished skinnies from Dorothy Perkins. Because they’re already sized to fit petite shoppers, you don’t have to worry about having to cut off too much of the hem—which is where the drama’s at.
