Disclosure: Joe’s Jeans provided me with a free pair of jeans for the purpose of this review. They have not reviewed or approved my post. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am a jeans kind of girl. I wear them in winter and in summer…dressing up or dressing down…on a date night with my husband or volunteering in my kids’ classrooms. I’m a firm believer that every woman should have at least one fabulous pair of jeans as a staple of her wardrobe.
But as every woman knows, it’s not always that simple. Women come in all shapes and sizes…but the same can’t be said for most denim brands. Shopping for the right jeans can be a trying experience, whether you’re tall, short, curvy, skinny, plus size, or even just slightly outside of “normal” proportions.
I can tell you firsthand that it’s not easy to find fantastic jeans when you’re only 5 feet tall, like me. Last month, I traveled to Chicago for a blogging conference, and I knew weeks in advance that I would wear jeans to at least two separate events. This was an important trip for me, and I wanted to do everything possible to look my best. So several weeks before my trip, I began researching denim lines that carried petite sizes and/or styles.
After much research, I decided on Joe’s Jeans. I loved that, unlike many other brands, their petite selection didn’t just consist of their regular line of jeans in a “short” length. After all, most petite women are short everywhere – not just in our legs. Joe’s Jeans has a petite department with styles that are specifically designed for the petite body. They even have a separate sizing chart for their petite denim line.
I selected a pair of Petite Bootcut Jeans in Dark Indigo. I was a little nervous about ordering jeans online without trying them on first, but I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of their sizing chart. My jeans truly fit like they were made just for me! The denim is gorgeous and very soft, with high quality stitching and construction. It was love at first sight.
The length (31” inseam) is perfect – long enough to look great with heels, wedges, or boots, but short enough that they don’t drag on the ground when I wear them with flats or flip flops. They sit slightly below my natural waist – not low enough for my underwear to peek out when I bend down, but not high enough to give me the dreaded “mom jeans” look. (Just because I’m a mom doesn’t mean I can’t look hot too!) They have just enough room in the hips and bottom to fit my curves without sagging or gapping at the waist. I also love the dark wash, which is more versatile and easier to convert into eveningwear than a lighter denim wash.
I had a fabulous time in Chicago, and I felt beautiful and confident every time I wore my Joe’s Jeans. Joe’s has a wide variety of sizes and styles, and they also carry gorgeous tops, dresses, and other wardrobe staples. Joe’s premium denim has been featured in dozens of style magazines like Lucky, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, and Teen Vogue and is popular with celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Biel, and Charlize Theron.
