I remember it like it was yesterday. I was going into fifth grade, and I was shopping for new school clothes. I had it all — the Abercrombie shirts, the Limited Too skirts, and the platform Sketchers. All that was missing were jeans, and jean shopping was the bane of my existence (that along with middle school math). Finding jeans has always been a struggle for me, and it hasn’t gotten any easier. I have a petite frame, so getting a pair of jeans that is small enough around the waist and short enough at the hem is relatively tricky. Pants are either too baggy, too long, or too ill-fitting on my body, and after trying countless pairs, I had all but given up and decided to just stick with the so-so jeans I didn’t love.
Since jeans can be expensive, I like to peruse around on more affordable sites to see what they have to offer. Since I like the way Old Navy workout leggings fit, I thought I’d give their jeans a shot. I saw the Extra High-Waisted Button-Fly Kicker Boot-Cut Ripped Cut-Off Jeans ($45) weren’t very pricey, I didn’t have a lot to lose.
Flash forward to when the jeans arrived. I was surprised at how nice the quality was for such affordable pants, and I also really liked the wash. The jeans feature casual back pockets and a cute cut-off hem that gives them a little edge. And when they fit like a glove, I knew my jean shopping saga was over. With fits that cover petite, tall, and regular, there’s sure to be a size that complements your body the way jeans are supposed to. Whether you want a new pair to add to your collection, or you, too, have struggled to find cute and affordable jeans that fit your frame, shop the pants ahead, and enjoy jeans for every body.
