Happy Sunday, friends! It’s been crickets on here and my IG due to weeks of visitors followed by sick kids at home. Everyone is finally recovered and back in school, and the gears are in motion for a grownups-only trip to Paris that I’m really looking forward to!

The Denim Trouser

These are a few looks I posted last month on IG but didn’t get to share in more detail. I’ve talked a lot about various alternative denim styles to try when branching out from slim / skinny denim – a wide crop style (like the Madewell PVJ crop or the J.Crew slim-wide) remains a top go-to since they work with flats, but if you don’t mind heels once in a while, the denim trouser is such a chic and flattering style to try!

They’re great for whenever you want to wear jeans but also feel a little more dressed up, and also for offices that allow denim. I personally like to style them with pieces that highlight the waistline, such as a tucked-in fitted top, a shorter sweater or cropped top as pictured below.

3 Denim Trouser Options for Petites

One of the first denim trousers I owned are the Gap stride jeans which run on the bigger and long side for petites, and are loose & long on me in their smallest size 24 petite. They first caught my eye immediately on a friend, so I do think they’re worth checking out if you can get the right size for you.

My latest pair from J.Crew are these sailor denim trousers, which are SO cute down to the wide hem detail. I’m usually a 00 petite in J.Crew pants and ended up sizing down on these to 23 petite for a snug fit. These come in 3 more washes here without the sailor pockets – I tried on the blue and found it to fit very similarly, although I could potentially do either 23 or 24 petite in that wash. These are long but not as long as the Gap, and I can wear ’em comfortably with my 3+ inch heels.

A newer style that’s caught my eye are the Madewell Harlow jeans, a denim take on their popular trouser! These have been backordered so I can’t speak to how they fit, but would guess I might size down to a 23 petite based on how their Harlow pants fit me loosely.
