MYTH

Petite Girls Can't Wear Flared Jeans Of course they can! Opt for a boot cut over an exaggerated flare; a boot cut will look wider on a petite frame, but won’t overwhelm your entire look. Paired with a pretty blouse that cinches at your natural waist, your legs will look much longer. For extra height, just add heels or wedges and have a tailor hem your jeans so they just skim the floor.

Shopping tip FIT TO BE TAILORED

Unless you’re really lucky, it’s rare to find a pair of jeans that fit perfectly straight off the rack. The biggest secret and best friend of any fashionista is her tailor. Invest in one or two pairs of jeans, and have them expertly tailored to fit your body--not only will you get more wear out of a couple perfect pairs than many so-so pairs, you’ll feel like a million bucks whenever you slip them on. Equally as important, you should never pass on a pair of jeans just because they are too long! Hemming is the easiest alteration, and the proper length makes a huge difference. To keep the original look of your denim, ask the tailor for a Euro-hem. framework
