Boyfriend jeans can be a great hit or a major NO when petite girls rock them. It can make us look wider and shorter than what we are, cutting our frame big time. I am all about owning my short frame, shoot I am proud of it! There is no way I want any of my fashion choices to come in between me and my frame, because its part of who I am. Some will suggest we just refrain from them period. I think otherwise! Since I’m all about breaking rules when it comes to fashion, I have figure out my own way to make boyfriend jeans to work for petite girls. I have created the prefect guide to rock those jeans like your 5’9 😉
Opt for Tighter Version of Boyfriend Jeans
Go for the jeans that are tighter on the top and are slouchy from your knee down. These jeans I’m wearing aren’t too loose on my waist, butt or thighs working wonders for my frame. Keeping my look more posh and chic. If your having a hard time find a pair of boyfriend jeans like this, go for a girlfriend style instead.
Go for Cropped Boyfriend Jeans or Fold Them
I always suggest rolling them up to your ankles. This makes your look, look more evenly throughout by not cutting down your frame.
Looser Bottom = Fitted Top
Balance is probably going to be written throughout this post like about 10 times 😉 Its simply true though. Balancing your outfit is key, making proportion more evenly.
Go for Heels Instead of Flats
Not just for height, but to create a more leaner look. Even if your heels are just 1in, it will make such a big difference!
Add a cropped Jacket
Cropped jackets creates an hourglass silhouette, since its hits you at your smallest area in your body, your waist. This also balances out your look. Side note: Unfortunately I don’t own any cropped, but this jacket worked just fine because it wasn’t longer than my waist.
Confidence makes your outfit! Own that look babes, whether your a shortie, 5’5, or have legs for days!!
