Petite-Friendly White Jeans

To all of my fellow vertically challenged ladies, I am rounding up a few of my favorite pairs of white jeans! I used to get most of my jeans hemmed, but I have found a few pairs over the last year or so that did not need to be altered. For reference, I am 5'2" and I typically wear a size 24 or 25, depending on the brand.  

I bought these about a year ago, in a size 24. They have also been in the following outfit posts: one, two, three, four, and five. They are pretty affordable at $59. I cuff them a little for wedges and heels, but for me they do not need to be cuffed with flats. I would say they are a mid-rise style, I typcially prefer high rise, but I love this pair. However, are not the most comfortable. They are rather tight, if you are looking for a very "skinny" jean.

As I mentioned in this recent outfit post, I just found this pair last January. They are normally a pricier pair of jeans ($178), but I found them for an amazing deal of $20 at Nordstrom Rack. I also wear a size 24 for this pair. They have a raw hem, and I only cuff them once so the hem is still visible. This pair has a slightly high rise fit, which I always look for. I think that always makes for a better fit on me, and make your legs look longer. They have a bit of a looser fit through the leg for a skinny jean, and are quite comfortable.

J. Crew- "Lookout" jeans

I only own this pair in regular denim, but they are also available in white. I have worn them in this post, this post, and this post. I found them for a very nice deal, I think they were marked down to $37 about a year and a half ago. I wear a 24 in these as well, but I cuff them a little more than other pairs of jeans I own. They are also available in petite sizes, and in a cropped version, which are sometimes the perfect length for me. These are also a high rise fit, a little higher than the Citizens of Humanity pair mentioned above. I think they are also a little more of a straight leg than a skinny jean, and are the most comfortable jeans I own!

Thanks for reading!


  1. I've always thought women's pants should be sized just like men's, with waist and length measurements! It' make it so much easier to get pants that fit perfectly! (Although I have the opposite problem of you and need extra long jeans!)

  2. Love this post Cara!
