Follow our tips for choosing jeans that flatter your figure and minimize your flaws
Fit challenge: Petite frame
Your small frame is drowning in denim.
Solution: Wide-leg jeans that are fitted through the thigh, so they don’t overwhelm a tiny frame.
What to look for:
- Make sure the proportions of the pants are right for your body. Oversize buttons or pockets can look downright clownish on a petite figure.
- Avoid cropped cuts or capris, which visually shorten the line of your leg.
- When hemming jeans, make sure the tailoring matches the original as closely as possible—for instance, use the same color thread.
