Let’s try to answer the question whether a petite woman can wear skinny jeans. Just look at Kylie Minogue and Eva Longoria to make a positive response. They disprove statements of some fashion experts that a woman shouldn’t wear skinny jeans if a petite stature or since a certain age. However, it would be quite good to remember a few simple rules to look really stylish.

Adhere to dark tones

This postulate knows almost every woman of petite height, especially if she is plus size. Dark colors lengthen the figure and give it harmony. Light colors work in the opposite direction. Of course, if you’re of petite height you would like to look higher.  It applies especially to the legs. You should wear black and dark blue jeans.  Don’t choose white, beige and cream shades. Put aside jeans in pastel colors.

Choose a style with no frills

The best for you will be jeans of a simple plain style, without any decorations. Rhinestones, embroidery, sophisticated pockets:  all this not for you as it adds volume to hips and legs look shorter. So adhere to the pure and strict style. This approach has another advantage: the decor may be actual or not and jeans without decorations belong to classic things and will never get out of fashion.

Choose a model of full-fledged length

Ankle length pants styles which are fashionable today can be risky for the petite height figure. They will automatically shorten the leg. It doesn’t mean that short models are a complete taboo. Choose high waist jeans and put on high heel pumps. If you prefer not to risk, be sure that jeans cover heels. You can buy a little bit longer jeans and then adjust them to the leg. Do not tuck jeans if their inside is lighter than external.  It will also make the legs shorter.

High heels are required

A petite woman needs high-heeled shoes, no matter what the doctor says. Of course, you can not wear hairpins permanently. Leave them for cases when you put on your skinny jeans. Choose black shoes to become their visual continuation. High boots is a great option for a short woman who put on skinny jeans.
