My Favorite Jeans

I’ve been asked countless times over the years where I get my jeans and how I shop for them online (especially as a short gal!) Let me just say, I feel your pain. I have a pretty good online shopping return rate of just 5% or so, and when I do return, it’s 9/10 times gonna be jeans. 

Finding a damn good pair of denim is not easy, especially when you’re petite. No matter what your height though, jeans are not a one-size-fits-all type of situation.

Also, can we just all agree that jean shopping can be the WORST?! The waist is too small, the waist is way too big, wtf why are these so tight on my knees?!, oh this is a cute look with 10″ of fabric dragging on the ground

Thankfully, this doesn’t happen too much anymore, as I have found my holy grail jeans, and I rarely venture out of them. I’ve rounded up my must-haves below, and why I adore them! I’m 5″3 for reference, and I’ve gone ahead and listed what size I have in each brand to help a sista out!

1 – Levi’s 

I’ll admit it…I’ve been sleepin’ on Levi’s. I tried on 10 vintage pairs at the Melrose Trading Post and took a big L from all of them. A few months ago, I finally decided to cave and buy a pair from Shopbop, since they have so many pairs to choose from. I picked up this pair and you guys…they’ve changed my life. They fit me perfectly, even down to the length which is RARE. The color is perfect, and they’ve quickly become my new everyday denim. I went with my normal size 25 and they fit like a glove. Keep in mind they don’t really stretch, so if you’re between sizes you may want to size up. 

2. GRLFRND Denim

Another brand I finally caved on this year. I never understood why they were so pricey, until now that is. Like Levi’s, GRLFRND is 100% cotton denim, so they’re the real deal. No stretch at first, but once you break them in, they will feel like they were made just for you. I’ve heard the sizes vary from pair to pair, which can be tricky when online shopping. I have this pair and absolutely LOVE them, but I got a 26 and wish I got a 25. After a few wears, I started having to wear a belt with them, or a chunky knit to tuck into them. Get your normal size in these, break em in, and prepare to never take them off. They do have a few petite styles, but they’re often sold out in my size, so instead…

CB Tip: If you’re short like I am, these will be too long. Easy fix? Chop a few inches off the bottoms and run them through the wash/dryer to get that raw hem look!

3. Topshop Petites

Probably the brand I’ve worn the longest of on this list! I can’t get enough of Topshop’s Petite denim! I suggest trying on the Joni’s and the Jamie’s among others in store, and if they’re still not the right inseam or size, buy them online! Online they have way more waist size / inseam combos, so you’re sure to find your perfect fit! I usually go for a 28″ inseam. 

CB Tip: These jeans can be pretty tight for a while. If you prefer that just broken in feel, find these on Poshmark! I’ve bought all my Topshop jeans from Poshmark over the last 3 years! If you’re lucky enough to find your size/inseam, I’ve snagged them up for around $20. Score!

4. Parker Smith

I’m pretty sure I also tried Parker Smith jeans in 2018. Wow, the year of jean discovery! Every pair I’ve ever tried on or owned is the softest, comfiest pair ever. If you’re not into the stiff denim feel, you will LOVE these! Everyone needs those comfy, stretchier jeans anyway. This pair sucks ya in in all the good places while still being so dang comfy. I have quite a few pairs and could probably do a whole post on how much I love these. In my experience, I’ve had to go a size down or two!


Lastly, ZARA has awesome jeans for us shorties and they’re so affordable! I need this snake print pair in my life like, yesterday. I always go for their high waisted skinny styles, but I own too many to list them all here! Honestly, you can’t go wrong! They’re comfy, flattering, and just great for everyday wear. 


Now I need to know where you get YOUR favorite jeans below!!

    I love this post! I’m only 5” 2 and finding jeans is so difficult especially since I have a really small waist and muscular thighs! I work at free people & am obsessed with their jeans , the Just float on flare is a game changer (I chopped a few inches off the bottom and they’re still the PERFECT flare!) thank you for the suggestions:)

    surprisingly, abercrombie denim is kind of great. i order online because going to the store just brings back too many middle school memories, but their jeans are GREAT for petite ladies and usually on sale!

      I totally agree! They are really nice quality and they are literally always on sale!

    This is gold. I’ve been struggling to find that PERFECT pair of jeans. I’m thicker and average height. It’s hard to find jeans that fit but I seriously love all these suggestions even if I’m not petite!! 🙂

    Long story short, I’ve been doing some rebuilding. Last summer’s score was TU 505, EX 521, EQ 560. Baddies are 30 days late on my Matco account from 11/19, I had 4 inquiries within the last 12 months, 3 credit cards in the last 12 months, chapter 7 in 2017. I was looking to get a Bilt card for a while but was hesitant since Wells Fargo always denies. I pulled the trigger to contact PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST last two weeks and explained my problems to them, which they offered to give me a solution to my bad credit score and my bad credit report. I subscribed to their service. The miracle here is that within 6 days they gave me an excellent score of TU 806, EX 811, EQ 814 and deleted the inquiries and late payment on my credit report. Last night I reapplied and was instantly approved for $15,000. Back to the garden for the rest of the year. Next target is Cap One X Venture. BIG THANKS to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for their service and MyFico community. Hit them on email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / Text + (872) 265 2951.

    In 2013, I purchased six Bitcoins when they were priced at around $80 (£60) each. At the time, Bitcoin was gaining attention in niche corners of the internet, and my interest was sparked after hearing discussions about it on a radio talk show. Despite the complicated process of buying Bitcoin back then, I managed to navigate through and acquire my coins.
    Living in Illinois, USA, I spent some of my digital currency over the following year before eventually forgetting about it. However, in late 2017, when news headlines announced that the value of Bitcoin had surged to nearly $20,000, I excitedly attempted to log in to my account and cash out. Unfortunately, I encountered an issue—I couldn’t remember all the login details for my Bitcoin wallet, which is a program or device that stores private keys or secret numbers.
    Realizing that my printout had missed some digits from my wallet identifier, I found myself in a frustrating situation. Although I had my password written down, I had no way of accessing my wallet without knowing the wallet ID. I tried various methods for months, but my efforts proved to be hopeless, and I eventually gave up.
    Fast forward to last spring when the value of Bitcoin surged above $50,000—more than 600 times the price I had paid eight years earlier. Filled with a renewed determination to locate my coins, I turned to the internet and discovered Mr. William Mercado (, a cryptocurrency expert known as a “crypto hunter.” After engaging in online conversations with Mr. Mercado, I gradually developed trust in his abilities and decided to provide him with all the details I could recall. Then, I patiently waited for a resolution. Eventually, everything fell into place. Mr. Mercado managed to access my wallet, and there it was—three and a half Bitcoins, which were valued at $175,000 at that point. I felt an overwhelming sense of relief. If you believe you have encountered a security issue, it is recommended to seek assistance from legitimate cybersecurity professionals. Engaging with ethical hackers who adhere to legal and ethical guidelines can help address security concerns in a responsible and lawful manner.
