Petite women wear wide leg

1. Go for a slight flare 

Petite frames always run the risk of being overwhelmed. Instead of opting for a true wide leg with a leg opening between 22-26.5″, go for a pant with a leg opening of 17-20″.

2. Go for high-waisted pants 

By now it’s no secret that wide-leg pants work wonders to elongate petite legs. Opt for a pair, especially if you’re wearing them with heels.

3. Slip into heels 

Wearing a heel that exposes the top of your foot elongates your legs, which is a plus for the petite girls. Short girls can wear wide leg pants as long as they are fitted at the top and not too voluminous.

Now zip your petite self into a pair of wide leg jeans—stat!
