Just as timeless as the LBD, denim is an iconic fashion staple that will never go out of style. But that’s not to say that finding the perfect pair doesn’t come with its share of challenges, as some pairs may fit nice and snug on the waist, but remain loose in other areas.
Celebrity stylist Soneca Guadara explains that if you’re constantly struggling to find the right fit, it’s probably because you aren’t looking for pairs that are appropriate for your height.
Below, we’re breaking down the best brands for the petite, average, and tall ladies.
Guadara says petite bodies should opt for jeans with a skinny or straight fit because you don’t want excess fabric hanging down the leg. Tailoring your pants, she adds, can also be equally helpful for those on the smaller side. “Tailor or hem your pants if too long,” she explains. “Jeans that end at your ankle will make your legs look a lot longer.”
This woman-created jean company aims to help women find the perfect jeans, from cropped to bootleg fits – and petite ladies are definitely no exception. This pair, in particular, features a shorter inseam, which flatters your body type perfectly.
Washlab offers a wide variety of jeans available in trendy washes and skinny, wide-leg, flare and straight fits. With that said, there’s no real surprise these jeans are a good fit for a petite figure, as it offers a higher waistline to elongate your silhouette.
“A quality pair of straight leg denim that fits properly and ends right at your ankle won’t attract attention to the belly, waist and hip area. This makes for a flattering option for women of average height, especially when you add a heel for a little added height,” says Guadara.
Although this brand is known for its on-trend dress pants, the brand has a few denim styles that are perfect for average heights. This trendy pant, for example, offers a stretchy and comfortable fit that won’t be too tight on the waist.
This Los-Angeles based jean company offers a wide variety of jeans fit for every personality, whether you love a good crop or boyfriend fit. If you’re of average height, you’ll love to know that these jeans will flatter your figure perfectly with a special mid-rise fit.
If you’re on the taller side, Guadara explains that you can practically wear almost any type of denim of your choosing. However, she always advises picking a pair of jeans that have a big enough inseam to ensure you don’t end up with an awkward length. “Low-rise flared jeans will balance out a longer torso,” she advises. “High-waist jeans will flaunt your height.”
This brand is actually tall-girl tested to ensure the perfect fit. And these jeans are no exception as the design of the rise helps hold you in in the front and back. The cut of the leg also hugs and compliments every curve down to your ankles.
Unlike many denim brands, Measure & Made uses a revolutionary sizing system, so that every woman can enjoy custom-like fit jeans at an accessible price point. Tall girls can definitely rejoice over these jeans, which successfully show off your long legs without being too uncomfortable.
