American Eagle recently had a sale where all of their jeans were $30 or less. I took this opportunity to check out some of the styles they had, and was instantly drawn to their Skinny Jeggings. Not only did the jeans look and feel good on, but they are also available in some very petite-friendly sizing.
I bought two pairs of the low-waist jeggings – one black and one in modern rinse. The fact that AE’s jeans tend to run a bit on the smaller side and are available in a short length, makes these perfect for petites. PLUS the jeggings are available in ankle length.
Some helpful advice: The regular jeans in a short inseam is the SAME LENGTH as the ankle jeans in a regular inseam. I bought a regular pair in size 1 Short and an ankle length pair in size 1 Regular. Both have a 29” inseam and fit me perfectly without scrunching at the ankles – no cuffing or moderations needed!
The material of these jeggings also has a nice weight to them – they actually feel like real jeans – just stretchier. I also love that they are slim throughout, even on my skinny chicken legs. The only complaint that I have is that since these are low-rise, I find myself tugging them back up every once in awhile. But AE does offer these jeggings in a high rise waist as well.
For you petite ladies out there who have trouble finding skinny jeans, I would highly recommend AE’s jeggings. Not only do they offer them in an array of petite friendly sizes, they are also great quality and extremely affordable when they are on sale (which they currently are for $30).
