How To Wear Wide Leg Crop Jeans When You’re Petite

I’m new to the WLCJ trend, but there are certainly a few tips I can provide to y’all when it comes to rocking them this spring. These tips work for everyone, not just us short folk so let’s get started.

Pick A Higher Waisted Style

To create that long leg line that we know and love, you’ve got to give the illusion your leg starts up higher than it really does. I love a good high rise, but even a solid mid-rise will give you the “length” you want.

Tuck In Your Top

With the higher waist pants, I prefer the look of my shirt tucked in to, once again, create the illusion of longer legs. If you’re not into a full tuck, a French tuck (or Frat Tuck as we used to call it in college) will totally do. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can see an example of that kind of tuck here. Or just watch an episode of Queer Eye!

Pick The Right Shoe

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that just because you’re petite, you need to wear a high heel. I didn’t in this look, but today I did. It’s totally up to you! I think the only tip I really on shoe choice is to not wear a shoe that’s too clunky or makes your look appear off-balanced. If you do a sneaker, pick a lightweight one like classic Keds.
