Favorite Jeans for Petites

You know the jeans you reach for over and over again because they fit you perfect and nothing else compares, well that’s what happened with me when I received my first pair of Current Eliott Stiletto Jeans a few years ago. They fit like a glove and the best part is they hit right at my ankle, so I didn’t have to roll them unless I wore shoes that went above my ankles. I instantly fell in love! Being petite (5’2″ 110 lbs.), I have found it incredibly difficult my entire life to find jeans that fit my length and smaller figure. I was also never one to splurge on jeans because I couldn’t justify the cost but let me tell you, there is a difference in designer jeans and non designer jeans!

I was lucky enough to be gifted my first pair of Current Elliott Jeans a few years ago and since then I have purchased nearly 10 more pairs. Are they expensive? Not for designer jeans but for most of the population, probably. Are they worth it? YES! I’ll also let you in on a secret. I have only paid full price for 2 pairs because I just couldn’t pass them up and they were clearly not going on sale anytime soon. A year later and they still haven’t been on sale. I actually purchased most of my Current Elliott Jeans from Saks Off 5th, during Shopbop’s Friends and Family sales or sale sites like Nordstrom Rack and RueLaLa. I only purchase the Stiletto because they are the ones that hit right at my ankle. These sites frequently get new ones in and I never pay more than $100 or so for them, which is a heck of a deal! Even though they are not marketed as Petite jeans, they are the best petite skinny jeans I have found!

Th first pair of Current Elliott Stiletto Jeans I was gifted a few years ago are called Townie (apparently I use to changed my hair color a lot lol). They are still available for purchase! I also wore them in yesterdays post but folded them with the booties. You can find more looks with them on the blog by searching current elliott.

I believe this is the second pair I personally purchased from Saks Off 5th for under $80. They have a similar pair on sale here.

The only full priced pair I bought were the Niagara Destroy ones below that I lusted over for months and I am so glad I splurged on them because I wear them all the time!

I bought these coated black and distressed ones last fall. I also recently purchased them in plain jet black (paid full price but they are a closet staple).

These really are the perfect jeans for fall!

The Ticker Destroy ones below are one of the last pairs I bought during the Shopbop Friends and Family Sale but for some reason they run longer then the other Stiletto’s. I was going to return them but actually loved the way they looked messily scrunched up, so I kept them. They are noe on sale for just $91! I also purchased this distressed pair with a frayed hem but somehow I have no photos of them but I wear them all the time! They are actually on sale for just $87!

If you are looking for other Petite friendly Jeans I absolutely LOVE the Lucky Brand Charlie Skinny Jeans as well. They also hit right at the ankle and are super comfy. I wait for a sale and then buy them. Lastly, I LOVE this pair of J Brand cropped skinny jeans I bought this summer and wore non stop. They are the only J Brand jeans I own and will be trying out more of their cropped.

    I’m 5’2″ as well so I have the same problem with denim and pants when it comes to length. I’m going to have to give those by Current Elliot a try! Thanks for sharing!
