Confession: back in "the day" I purchased, and wore to death a certain pair of bootleg jeans from a certain store called GapKids. No, not because I was 'too thin to find adult jeans' but rather, manufacturers didn't make jeans with shorter inseams until recently. In order to save you from an embarrassing trip to the kiddie shop or the tailor, I have found 3 pairs of great jeans that are crisp, classic and perfect for us not-so-tall ladies.
This pair from J. Crew is marketed as a "cropped jean" but will fit the shorter gal exactly the way a nice slim denim should. These are tailored and skinny at the ankle, which will complement a pointy heel or a flat sandal equally. Invest here.
The Stevie Ankle jeans by AG are not a steal, but what they lack in cost efficiency they make up for in softness. The ankle-length is ideal, and think of the money you'll save on alterations. Am I right? Find yours here.
Lastly, this pair from H&M is remarkably flattering and fits like a dream. Look for the Skinny Low Waist Ankle design. Preview these here. Did I mention these are $29.95? Buy two.
