Petite-friendly flared jeans (and budget-friendly too)

If you pay attention to Fall trends then you know flare jeans are making a big comeback. I have always loved flare jeans so I couldn't be happier they're back in style. However, finding a pair of flared jeans for short girls is extremely difficult. My ideal inseam would be 31" but that doesn't exist. I was looking for a pair of flared jeans that are fitted through the hip/thigh (with no waist gap), the flare starts right at the knee, thick cotton material, length = 31", classic wash and under $100. I know that's a lot to ask for =)


I scoured the Internet for weeks and finally found the perfect pair that met almost all my needs (except the inseam). Since they have everything that I was looking for and are affordable, I decided to make a purchase and have them hemmed to my desired length. I love them so much that I had to get both shades.

I highly recommend trying on your jeans and putting on the shoes that you prefer to wear them with before taking your jeans for alterations. I had 2" hemmed off the length of the dark wash so I can wear them with my short ankle boots and 1.5" off the length of the light wash so I can wear them with my tall wedges. I asked my seamstress to keep the original hem. It cost $18 per pair for hemming, putting the total cost of each pair at $50 (not to shabby!). I am thrilled to have 2 pairs of well fitting and reasonably priced flared jeans to rock this Fall.

Love these flared jeans! They look really pretty on you! The length alteration is perfect! Do you know what they did so that the hem looks identical to the original? I never get that result! Have a nice day!

Those flare jeans are so cute! I had to get mine hemmed too - they never are the right length!
